P and S factor indicative questions

These documents provide a sample list of the indicative questions that management, or their representatives, should answer when assessing (P) and (S) factors.

These form Annex A and Annex B of the Guide to Safety at Sports Ground (Green Guide)

The (P) factor is an assessment of the physical condition of a ground or section of a ground.

The (S) factor relates to the quality of safety management at a ground.

(P) and (S) factors and indicative questions should be reviewed annually. They should also take place whenever there is any physical alteration to the ground or a change in the nature of the sport or event being staged. Where a safety certificate is in force any reassessment should be ratified by the local authority.

Worked Examples of capacity calculations, showing how (P) and (S) factors are applied, are available.
