This guide has been developed with the aim of reducing the incidents and impact of injury to employees and customers, by promoting good practice and better training. The guide will benefit owners and operators of licensed premises and venues where it is foreseeable that employed or contract staff, such as door supervisors, event stewards and other security personnel, may use physical intervention. This guide is endorsed by both the Association of Chief Police Officers and the SIA, and is sponsored by Skills for Security and the British Institute of Innkeeping.
The guide contains the following sections:
- Assessing risk
- Reducing risk
- Policy and guidance
- Assessing training needs
- Selecting and delivering physical intervention training and useful sources and references
