Kevlar Gloves for Door Security Staff – “cowardly, unnecessary and illegal”?

Posted on: Wednesday, 23 May 2018

A little while back,we received an email asking for our views on the use of Kevlar-knuckled gloves by door security staff. We think it raised some interesting and timely issues for security personnel, and we’d like to share the discussion. With a bit of paraphrasing, here’s the email, and the detailed response from our own Sandra Williams. The question I’ve just had a debate about the use of gloves with Kevlar knuckles whilst working as a Door Supervisor. Opinions were been thrown around about their use being cowardly, illegal, unnecessary or going against the SIA rules of conduct etc. But there were also other opinions about how great they are.

Tourniquet training – necessary for first-aiders?

Posted on: Tuesday, 2 August 2016

IBA UK is now offering advanced first aid courses in the use of tourniquets and haemostatic dressings for those in the security industry and workers in high-risk industries. In this post, we’ll look at the controversy over tourniquet use, and why we think it remains an indispensible procedure. To tourniquet or not to tourniquet? We’ve all seen tourniquets at the movies. The hero tears off his shirt and ties a makeshift tourniquet round the leg of his badly-injured buddy. The reality is a bit more complex than that.
