Futures Sponsor

ACT (National) Ltd is a professional health & safety consultancy operating across a wide range of events both in the UK and across the globe.

We provide Health & Safety solutions that are tailored to the client, their business, and their budget!

Health & Safety in the events world is viewed by some as an obstacle to creativity. We prove that this is not the case. We apply sensible and pragmatic solutions to every event we work on.

We believe that behind every great event there should be a professional safety team. We become part of those teams by providing top level strategic event safety consultancy for some of the world’s most prestigious sporting, music and regional events. Our focus is always the UK events market, but we have established great business relationships across the world, and we combine our global experience to reduce costs, enhance the service delivery, and therefore assist our clients to deliver the safest event possible.

A.C.T. provides support, advice and knowledge, enabling our clients to get on with their core tasks, confident that we will develop a complete safe system of work, that dovetails into the overall event management plan. We communicate and liaise with our clients and other stakeholders (emergency services, local authorities, etc.) to ensure safe plans are delivered at a strategic and operational level to everyone’s satisfaction.

A.C.T are proud to be futures sponsors with NOEA. This commitment has allowed A.C.T to be kept abreast of new developments within the industry and in turn enables us to provide the association, and its members, with up to date, relevant and affordable event safety services. Being a futures Sponsor has provided A.C.T with the opportunity to influence the Events Industry in improving safety standards across the board which sits high in the values of A.C.T.

Although the events we work on are wide and varied, and span the globe, we never forget our roots. The local village fete is equally as important to ACT, compared to the biggest sporting and cultural events on the planet. From our perspective, the principles of safety are the same, they just have to be applied in different ways.

The ABB FIA Formula E Championship is the electric street racing series and the world’s first fully-electric international single-seater category in motorsport. Formula E brings intense and unpredictable racing to some of the world’s most recognisable and progressive cities – including Hong Kong, Rome, Paris, Berlin and New York.

Formula E enters a new and exciting era in season five with the competitive debut of the next generation car. The striking new model boasts a distinctive futuristic design and demonstrates a clear step-up in performance with almost double the energy storage capacity – allowing teams and drivers to complete a full race distance at higher speeds without needing to swap cars. The Gen2 car is a testament to the ongoing advancements in battery and electric vehicle technology in the space of only four years.

The fifth edition of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship will see 11 teams and 22 drivers tackle a variety of challenging circuits in 12 cities across five continents in a bid to be crowned champion. Formula E will be making its debut in the Middle East on December 15 for the season-opener in Ad Diriyah, with the championship once again coming to a close in New York City over the course of two days on July 13 & 14.

The concept of Formula E is to act as a platform to test and develop road-relevant technologies, helping refine the design and functionality of components and infrastructure – actively speeding-up the transition and uptake of electric vehicles on a global scale.

Formula E is continuing to attract some of the leading names and renowned brands in motorsport and the automotive industry. For this season, Formula E has nine manufacturers on its roster – including Nissan – taking over the existing entry from Renault – and BMW linking-up with Andretti. This number is set to rise further still, with the highly-anticipated inclusion of Mercedes-Benz and Porsche in season six.
