NZSA Security Update – Guidelines update, face masks & events

Update to Security Industry Good Practice Guideline

The Security Industry Good Practice Guideline was developed and launched by the NZSA last year as an industry resource providing operational and health and safety standards for all New Zealand companies operating in the guarding and security patrols sectors.

With the assistance and input from a working group, including event security providers and event and venue hosts, the NZSA has developed additional sections specific to guidance on Crowd Controller roles and duties and providing security for Events, Venues and other Crowded Places.

The additional sections are aligned with the recently issued Protecting our Crowded Places from Attack: New Zealand’s Strategy programme and the various resource tools.

The amended copy of the Good Practice Guideline, including the new sections, can now be downloaded from the NZSA website
