From August 2010 anyone wishing to be licensed as a SIA Door Supervisor will be required to attain a Level 2 Qualification in Physical Intervention. This Physical Intervention course is available as a new add-on qualification to Door Supervision, bringing existing Door Supervisors up to the same level as newly licensed staff.

It is a legal requirement and not an option and ASTS have been aware of the skills to be provided to Door Supervisors and it has now become legislation as from August 2010.

Physical Intervention Skills are needed to reduce the use of High Risk Techniques that will also improve staff and customer safety. As safety is of paramount importance as well containing the problem which is largely depending on your work environment, this could involve anything from avoidance and disengagement, to rescue, escort and holding skills.

Training for Security posts such as a Door Supervisor or similar post require the individual to be made aware of the medical implications and legal advice on the use of force if these are not undertaken in a professional and correct manner. The aim should be to resolve the situation without the necessity to use force and the use of non-physical strategies must be achieved where practicable, however the use of Physical Intervention may have to be used as a last resort.

Physical Intervention Skills

The key areas the course will cover are as follows:

Disengagement Skills

At ASTS we will look at how our staff can help to reduce the risk of assault through non-physical measures, and be able to avoid different forms of assault by adopting correct positioning, and their manner of approach. We will look at how they can disengage from the most common types of assault they are likely to come across in their roles as Door Supervisors.

Holding & Restraint

Due to the nature of the job for Door Supervisors, they may require situations where you are required to legitimately use force, to take hold or physically escort a person from the premises. It is essential you are fully equipped to know how to implement holding techniques to protect yourself and other guests and to most importantly avoid excessive discomfort and or pain or physical damage to the individual to avoid damaging litigation and to maintain safety for all parties.
