Event Planning

Running an event 

There are TWO main steps to hosting an EVENT on the McMaster University Campus:

Step 1:  Completing an Environmental & Occupational Health Support Services (EOHSS) form and appropriate waivers.

  • Do you need an EOHSS form to hold an event?  YES!
  • An EVENT is ANYTHING an MSU club does ON or OFF the McMaster Campus. 
  • EXCEPTION:  any booking on the McMaster University Student Centre (MUSC) 2nd floor does NOT require an EOHSS form.  This includes Clubspace.
  • How do I complete an EOHSS form?  Use your OFFICIAL (xxxxxxx@mcmaster.ca) email address and your EOHSS club PIN number.
  • ALL EOHSS forms MUST be approved by the Clubs Administrator and an EOHSS staff member.  This is done automatically online.
  • Waivers are required for specific events, such as  Bus Trips, Film showings, absolutely any event involving Alcohol, and any event involving Participatory Sports.
