How can understanding crowd behaviors, movements, and science enhance venue safety and security?
Security professionals often fall into the trap of “that’s not my job” or “we’re not trained to do that” when it comes to mass gathering crowd movements such as, ingress, egress, and in-event movements as they pertain to guest amenities (restrooms, concessions, etc.). Recent events such as, the Travis Scott Juice WRLD crowd surge in Texas and the bombing at the conclusion of the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester in 2017 demonstrate how better understanding crowd movements can influence safety and security planning and response.
Commonly used security practices like behavior assessment, crowd management, and appropriate staffing ratios can help venue safety and security managers provide safer environments for their fans and staff. This free presentation, the speaker will demonstrate how to use these tactics when planning your next event.
