Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Security services for events – what determines the price?

The event venue, its nature, and the number of participants determine how many security guards to hire for your event and what kind of positions they would fill. The price is also affected by whether the organiser recruits volunteers. 

Forus has ensured safety and security at both very large and very small events. We consider each and every event unique, so we adjust our services according to the wishes of the client and take into account its peculiarities. 

The most common responsibilities of security staff at events:

  • Checking tickets and making security checks
  • Directing visitors
  • Ensuring safety
  • Guarding equipment
  • Ensuring public order
  • Guarding various access points
  • Organising traffic and parking
  • Lifeguard services at events involving a body of water

When do I know my event needs a security plan?

According to legislation, every event organiser must ensure the safety of participants and public order. An event with 300 participants or more is considered to have an increased security risk. Public events are required to have a security plan that we can help a client prepare if necessary. 

What must be taken into account when providing security services at various events?

Many different factors have to be taken into account at one event. Much depends on the wishes and needs of the customer.

The main things to keep in mind are:

  • Number of attendees – More people means more security staff.
  • How many volunteers do you involve as an organizer?
  • A security plan is mandatory at a public event.
  • Safety of performers, spectators and equipment.
  • Security of property and ensuring public order.
  • Traffic routing, traffic management and schemes.
  • Does the security guard also perform the role of customer service.
  • Securing the fan zone.
  • Luggage storage and cloakroom service.

For sports events, for example, it must be taken into account that each sport requires a specific approach (training of the security team according to the field).

However, more festive events require security personnel to wear more solid clothing than usual.

In addition, the security of prominent guests must be taken into account.

What is the role of a head of security?

Every event usually includes a security plan and determining the positions of security personnel.

Our head of security is going to coordinate everything on location, taking care of the entire team. The head of security must be ready to act at any time and in any situation, ensuring smooth security services for your event. Often, various emergencies are acted out before the event to be ready for anything if necessary.
