A good way to do this is to have a mental gauge of the various degrees of trouble you are confronted with. For example:

A good door supervisor is completely aware of their surroundings. If you are new to a job and therefore establishment, take time to learn where all the exits are – including those that are generally off limits to patrons.



While working, you should always know where you are on the floor in relation to these exits. If trouble starts, you cannot be looking around trying to get your bearings when a drunken troublemaker is attempting to shove a glass in your face.

There's no doubt that driving in the dark is more dangerous.



A Department for Transport study revealed that although only 15% of vehicle miles are clocked between 7pm and 7am, they account for almost a third of road injuries and deaths.

This is because of reduced visibility and increased difficulty in judging speed and distance.

Top tips for safer night driving:
