Security Industry Authority (SIA) licenced
We are an Approved Contractor under the SIA licensing scheme and our security staff are SIA qualified and hold all the necessary licences where required. Members of our security and stewarding teams are also trained in:
- health and safety
- delivering outstanding customer service
- spectator safety, and
- first aid techniques.
Events, disabilities and dealing with a diverse audience
One of the keys to our success in providing event security is our understanding of how to adapt our responses to different audience profiles. We start by creating an audience profile for an event, which broadly tells us who'll be attending. Audience profiles may differ according to age, gender, mobility or the availability of alcohol. Our security managers examine previous audience profiles of similar events. They'll then create a profile for the upcoming event.
Managers will then brief security teams on potential issues to be aware of so that our security teams can adapt their responses depending on what the audience profile is. Our versatile security staff will also monitor crowd mood and behaviour to proactively manage the safety of the ticket holders.
Access and mobility
Event staff are fully trained in assisting people who need help with their mobility. They may be called upon to assist with various access issues, including:
- wheelchair access
- people with reduced mobility, or
- people with disabilities.
