The hospitality industry is vibrant, dynamic and continually changing to meet the aspirations of contemporary consumers. Nowhere is this truer than in pubs where feeling relaxed and safe is vital to customers and staff.

Security, therefore, is a vital element in any professionally run outlet. It is achievable through a variety of methods including:

  • Designing an environment that minimizes opportunities for crime
  • Providing hardware and electronic devices, which minimise access to intruders and maximise possibilities for detection of criminal activity
  • Increasing staff awareness and training so they can work towards reducing risks

The BBPA has produced guidance to assist in maximising security in design. It can be downloaded below.
