A new guide has been launched giving licensees advice on how to deal with physical interventions.

The guide, launched by the BIIAB and Skills for Security, the standards setting body for the security industry, is intended to give clarity on the issue of physical confrontations - and has been endorsed by Chris Allison of the Association of Chief Police Officers and the Security Industry Authority.

The guide covers: assessing risk; reducing risk; policy and guidance; assessing training needs and selecting and delivering physical interventions training.

Cathie Smith, director of BIIAB, said: "This publication is a response to the absence of guidance on physical intervention which has been a significant concern for all stakeholders. Door supervisors and frontline staff need the knowledge and skills to do their jobs safely and effectively.

Stefan Hay, director of business development and communication at Skills for Security said: "Door supervisors are faced daily with increasingly volatile scenarios and we feel it is our duty to ensure that they are provided with the guidance they need to physically intervene in an appropriate and safe manner. We are, therefore, delighted to be a partner in this excellent initiative."

Copies are available from BIIAB and Skills for Security at a price of £5 excluding P&P.
