SIA Licensed Door

Door supervisors are responsible for the safety and security of customers and staff in venues such as pubs, bars, nightclubs and other licensed premises or at public events. They spend much of their time at the premises’ entrance, checking the suitability of people coming in. This may involve checking that the person is not underage or carrying any harmful substances or objects, such as drugs or weapons.

They may also check that customers’ attire meets the required dress code for the venue or event. Inside the venue, they monitor people’s behaviour, using their conflict management skills to reduce disturbances, whilst keeping a check on fire safety requirements, occupancy limit and any other venue requirements i.e. Covid Compliance.
