It is crucial to determine the security measures while organising any event, especially as there’s generally a large crowd of people who may not behave as expected, causing security concerns, and it is the responsibility of the event organiser/planner to deliver the event with safety. In other words, event security is about ensuring that the event takes place as seamlessly as possible, without any trouble, and that any unforeseen mishaps are handled safely and effectively.
Professional security officers and other security measures in place will help avoid situations that get out of hand. Large crowds can be difficult to manage, and having trained personnel for support makes a huge difference. Security officers provide a physical and visible presence of security to the guests and staff of the event.
Stewards are trained members of a team that play a crucial role in making sure that an event runs successfully and that all the attendees are safe. All events require an appropriate number of stewards to secure and manage the premises and the guests. The number of stewards required depends on the nature of the event, the number of attendees, the location, and the regulations set by the local authorities.
Stewards undertake a variety of responsibilities to deliver the best experience for attendees by maintaining a high level of customer care and assisting guests throughout the event. Their responsibilities include offering guidance to the guests, acting as the first point of contact, and preventing unauthorised entry to the event venue. They are also the link between the event management team and the public and oversee the crowd to make sure the events take place as planned. They are trained to handle unlawful behaviour such as fights, vandalism, drug and substance abuse, and other criminal activities.
Event stewards are often the first faces you see while attending an event. They also have health and safety responsibilities as they are required to be present to maintain the health and safety of all the event attendees. They offer a reassuring and friendly presence to the guests and are responsible for dealing with anti-social behaviour. Stewards play a significant role in managing crowd control.
Overcrowding during events is one of the most dominant causes of accidents. Stewards are in charge of knowing the locations of fire exits and escape routes so that they can guide people out to safety in case of an emergency evacuation. In addition, stewards take great responsibility for watching out for any hazards that are harmful to anyone attending the event.
Any event will struggle to succeed without the presence of stewards. Their presence is reassuring, and they work to deliver a secure and safe event, controlling the crowd and handling unlawful situations. Events bring together many people, and it is vital to take suitable security measures to keep attendees and staff safe.
