Door Supervisor Skills- Additional Training?

September 26, 2020

We have spoken in recent articles on what is entailed in job descriptions for door supervisors. A role that is usually the stepping-stone to developing your security career, this is a role many establishments require for daily operations. There have been discussions held within the SIA on potentially providing top-up training which could help improve the skills and expand on responsibilities door supervisors have.

Physical control

The assumption is that many door supervisors are solely within premises for physical control in various circumstances. However, there are methods and techniques required to ensure any physical approach isn’t aggressive or violent and that individuals can be restrained in the most appropriate manner. The ability to disengage from anyone who attempts to fight, or assault is also key to ensure your safety as well as members of the public. Training door supervisors to retain physical control is an essential aspect as the main purpose they hold is to prevent physical harm from being inflicted onto members of the public.

Legislations, policies and schemes

Alongside the physical side of security, there are laws and legislations that door supervisors should be made aware of. Particularly when dealing with the members of the public, understanding the laws and regulations that permit their operative powers is key. The ability to arrest someone, understanding the powers you hold and the procedures in which to follow will allow you to fulfil your role as a security operative. With door supervisors, people will question what you can and can’t do on premises, additional training provided on your rights and understanding how to follow legal procedures, arrests, equality and diversity as well as health and safety will ensure you are able to fulfil your role on site without hassle.

Terror threats

This has included security workers more as threats emerge within the public space, door supervisors are now needed to be informed on how to approach individuals and ensure safety during terror attacks. As countries now remain tight on security and terror threats, it is key that door supervisors are provided an additional skill in being able to deal with suspicious items and recognising suspicious behaviour. Having an insight in the different methods of terror attacks would also allow door supervisors to recognise early signs of an attack that can prevent further danger being inflicted. Additional training for terror threats can also allow door supervisors to transfer skills into other circumstances which include lockdowns, robberies and anti-social behaviour.

If additional training was to be provided for door supervisors, it would allow them to gain more responsibility in other areas of security. Learning the legal side of security would also be an asset to enable door supervisors to get an all-rounded understanding of security as opposed to just the physical side.
