As featured in the November print issue of Professional Security magazine, the Security Industry Authority (SIA) requires door staff to take extra training for their badge in awareness of vulnerable people. A vulnerable person is defined as someone who is at risk of harm. Door supervisors need to recognise customers that may be vulnerable. The exam awarding body HABC has online a ‘vulnerable people and sexual exploitation top-up unit workbook’ on the subject.
It covers how a doorman can identify vulnerable people; understand the risks to vulnerable people (typically someone young) being ejected from, or refused entry to, a venue and what actions can be taken to protect them; identify the behaviour of sexual predators; and identify and know how to report indicators of child sexual exploitation.
