The security industry is not all about big burly doorman and names on a clipboard! At ASTS we train security staff and then through our sister company ADV Security (Ltd) we can then provide security staff to a whole host of different businesses and events throughout the year. One of our most recent events was the annual Halloween Horrors Event at Fort Amherst in Chatham, Kent. This annual event is the longest running ‘Scare’ event in Europe, this year is its 36th birthday!
ADV provide SIA Security staff for this event every year and year on year this event grows in size and visitors.
The SIA stands for Security Industry Authority. This means that the SIA is wholly responsible for regulating and amending the private security industry in the UK and draws its powders from the Private Security Industry Act 2001. This Act initiated the mandatory licensing of many people working in all security occupations such as contracted security officers, CCTV operators, door supervisors and close protection workers.

There are some important points everyone should consider when it comes to summer fire safety.
