Yes, public facing security or enforcement officers must use excellent communication skills or should be trained in conflict management and hence understand how to deescalate a hostile situation. The reality however is that we cannot change the behaviour and action of certain individuals. Some people are aggressive and full of hate, some are seriously intoxicated or under the influence of Class A drugs, some are mentally ill and others are political or religious extremists. The fact there are many many people we cannot and will never stop from using physical violence to get their point across.
PPSS Stab Resistant Vests will effectively help to protect those men and woman charged to engage with those individuals.
Certain professionals e.g. Police, Border Control, Immigration, Customs, Parking Enforcement, Trading Standards or Licensing Enforcement Officers need to be seen as ‘Authority’ or ‘visual deterrent’… hence many within these type of organisations prefer to wear:
OVERT Stab Vests (Navy Blue)
...or HIGH VISIBILITY OVERT Stab Vests
...others prefer COVERT Stab Vests due to the nature of their job and operational duties.
A lack of adequate safety measures cab put a security officer or guard at avoidable risk and end up causing unacceptable injury or harm.
The UK’s Health and Safety Laboratory produced a research project quite some years ago. They approached a few hundred companies and organisations of different sizes and across a range of domestically operating occupations.
The outcome highlighted very clearly what organisations, what services, what activities and operational duties do represent a realistic risk. If you or your organisation is providing or offering any of these ‘services’, please consider stab resistant vests in order to protect your frontline professionals.
