Most of the standards used within the event security industry are done so on a voluntary basis. Apart from adherence to the Private Security Industry Act 2001 the standard of vetting and training is pretty much down to the individual companies. A reputable company will inquire into the background of their applicants, giving you the client the knowledge the staff you have on site have a good character and the right to be working there. Uk Event Associates have a robust training programme, starting with the initial training and induction process right through to sending people on professional or academic courses. All this takes time and a deal of investment, however we believe positive selection and education of staff raises the standard within the industry, thereby raising the level of service delivered, giving added value for money.
In an industry that is seasonal the workforce is transient. Companies that have high standards in recruitment and training have high rates of staff retention. This means that security staff at Uk Event Associates have a depth of knowledge and experience, not just at supervisory and managerial levels but throughout the workforce and we have developed a strong team ethic, again adding value to the security operation and the event as a whole.
The company you select are representing you, Uk Event Associates emphasise to our staff that everyone on an event site is representing our client therefore professionalism is shown at all times. As well as securing your site and ensuring a safe environment for your customers, Uk Event Associates work to maintain, and where possible, enhance the reputation of you and your event.
