Extreme Value Analysis

Extreme Value Analysis: its potential use in crowd safety planning

Mick Upton

Abstract

This paper considers Extreme Value Analysis methodology as a first step in the process of assessing risk when planning for crowd safety at organised social events. The origins of a two level system of analysis are discussed and the way that the system can be adapted for crowd safety planning use is explained. The paper then moves on to provide practical examples of how the system can improve crowd management planning. .
