When you evaluate all of the harm that might occur on a huge event that has consumed a considerable amount of time, effort, and budget to plan, then you will consider hiring a security steward and kill the idea that it is weird in the first place. You don’t have to be a millionaire or a high-profile person these days to hire a security steward. Event planners increasingly appreciate the peace of mind that comes with hiring qualified security stewards when arranging their events.

As a Security Steward, you will be in charge of ensuring the safety of clients’ venues, personnel, and guests. It might include:

· Pre and post-event safety inspections to ensure compliance with safety regulations.

· Greeting, helping, and guiding event attendees

· Monitoring guest/crowd activities and attitude to spot possible concerns or events and take appropriate action.

· Ensure that no illegal or unauthorized objects are brought into the venues’ guarded zones.

· Crowd control and queue management

· Guests are being watched for signs of discomfort, confrontation, or someone in need of medical treatment.

· Accountable for guests’ wellness, safety, and convenience during their stay.

· Be on the lookout for individuals of the public/audience who are acting suspiciously, and confront and raise as necessary.

· In an emergency, offer assistance and support to coworkers and other personnel to a secure location to guarantee a safe escape.
