How to run safe and successful events in 2022 | Event Security Services | Taur Security

Over the last 12 months we have enjoyed the return of events including the rescheduled 2020 Tokyo Olympics, football stadiums at full capacity and Glastonbury set to return in June this year.

But from an organiser’s point of view, what security challenges could we face, how can risks be prevented and ultimately, how can we run safe and successful events in 2022?

 

Key practices when planning public events

As public events often involve large numbers of people gathering within close proximity, they are often the target for anti-social behaviour and terrorist activities, as we have unfortunately seen in Manchester and at events across the world.

However, by having the correct security procedures, infrastructure and resources in place, we can reduce these risks and help safeguard the public and our customers.

Below we explore some of the key practices that should be applied when planning public events regardless of the size of the venue or the number of people estimated to attend.

Below we explore some of the key practices that should be applied when planning public events regardless of the size of the venue or the number of people estimated to attend.

1. Risk Assessments

As each event will pose different security risks, it is fundamental in the planning stages to conduct a full risk assessment. This will help to identify what security threats could arise before, during and after the event and with measures being put in place to address those risks.

2. Crowd Management Measures

For larger events, crowd management practices should be used to ensure large gatherings are controlled in an orderly and problem-free manner. This could include imposing vehicle and pedestrian traffic flows in the areas surrounding the venue. Crowd control barriers and turnstiles are being installed at the venue’s entrances and signposts displayed to help keep crowds moving.

3. Trained and Licensed Security Personnel

Should it be your 30th birthday and you’re hiring the local nightclub or as a business looking to run a large, public music festival; having the appropriate number of trained and licenced security personnel in place is fundamental.

Security guards should hold valid SIA Licenses which gives assurance that the security operatives are qualified and able to effectively carry out their duties. The security personnel should be competent in identifying security vulnerabilities that could occur at the event, for example:

  • Spotting unattended bags and cases. Terrorists could use this as a method of leaving a bomb or disposing of weapons.
  • Identifying restricted areas that are unlocked.
  • Respond to medical incidents and apply medical first aid.

 

By applying the above key practices, you can ensure that your event runs smoothly and that guests, staff and the public remain safe at all times.
