Health and safety


Topic of the week: Linked seating regulations

Is there a definitive ruling on whether or how chairs need to be linked in various size halls or meeting places? For instance if putting 100 chairs into a room in lines of 20, do they need to be linked, does there need to be a break etc? I have searched through various documents and statutes but cannot find a definitive ruling on this type of issue
