Safety tips for women

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Saturday, January 13, 2018, In : Personal Security 
Although women feel more vulnerable when they’re out, it’s actually young men who are a higher risk of violence.
In this day and age, you have to prepare yourself for whatever may come your way. There are people out there who are just looking for targets and you want to make sure you’re not one of them.



Keeping safe whilst walking

Always try to walk facing on-coming traffic to avoid kerb crawlers (men who drive around looking for prostitutes).
If you do get asked for sex by someone slowly d...

Staying safe in a Nightclub

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Saturday, November 18, 2017, In : Personal Security 
Even with the recent club fires in past years, it’s safe to say that being vigilante in the area of safety isn’t at the forefront of the average clubbers mind, since most people are just looking to get the most buzz for their money when it comes to having fun and enjoying themselves, but that has to change.



Consumers should take extra notice of clubs that are either above or below ground level, since these types of venues require stairs to enter and exit, and staircases always create the p...

Keeping safe while driving at night

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Thursday, November 16, 2017, In : Personal Security 
There are things you should always do to keep safe on the road, but there are additional measures you should take to stay safe at night.

Here are some ways you can make sure you are as safe as possible when driving alone at night.

Bring someone with you, particularly if it is a long drive. This isn’t always po...

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Tuesday, October 3, 2017, In : Personal Security

Safety tips for working after hours

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Saturday, September 30, 2017, In : Personal Security 

We’ve all done it—worked into the late hours of the morning only to realise that we’re now alone, the staff car park is deserted, and no one knows where we are. Working late and on weekends is often a necessary evil, but it’s important to take precautions to avoid safety issues when you do have to burn the midnight oil. 



Notify
Tell your boss that you’re working late. Notify internal security staff; in some cases this also includes building security. In fact, program the number for bu...

Dealing with drunk customers

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Tuesday, September 26, 2017, In : Personal Security 
Part of being a bartender is your ability for dealing with drunks and unruly customers.



It is essential you deal with customers who have had a little bit too much to drink in the correct manner to get the best outcome.

Remember – it is illegal to serve customers who are too drunk as you may be putting their lives at risk. Bottom line, don’t serve the intoxicated.

Drinking alters people’s perception and ability to control their actions.

How would you feel if you served someone who was alread...

What to do if a dog attacks you

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Tuesday, September 26, 2017, In : Personal Security 
Even though dog bites are relatively common, full-blown attacks are not. It is important to know what to do in the unlikely event an attack happens.



What type of behaviour do dogs normally exhibit before attacking?

There is no one size fits all when it comes to the signals a dog gives before attacking, and while the signs of aggression such as growling, snarling, baring teeth and lunging are easy to read, there can also be signs that are so subtle, such as a moment of tension or a small freeze,...

Staying safe on buses and trains

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Monday, September 25, 2017, In : Personal Security 


Know the bus or train times


It sounds obvious but knowing the time your train or bus is due to leave will save you hanging round on dark platforms or at bus stops at this time of year. It's particularly important to know the time of the last bus or train home if you are travelling late at night so that you do not become stranded - and vulnerable to attack.

Catch your bus or train from somewhere well lit

Thieves are far less likely to strike in well lit areas so try to make sure that you catch yo...

Security devices for women

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Friday, July 28, 2017, In : Personal Security 
The stun gun

This small gun charges an attacker with an electric shock. The shock weakens the attacker temporarily, giving you ample chance to escape the scene. When its trigger is pulled, a stun gun pumps about 700,000 volts into the attacker’s body. Some stun guns are small enough to be concealed in a pack of cigarettes. They run on Lithium batteries and can be carried either in handbags or held in waist straps.



The stun baton

Shaped like the baton used in relay races, this self defence devi...

Close Protection

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Saturday, June 15, 2013, In : Personal Security 
Close Protection (CP) is more widely known by the general public as the role undertaken by people calling themselves ‘Bodyguards’. It often conjures up the image of a large-framed individual sporting dark glasses and looking menacing much like the villain of many a modern film. The presence of a large and frightening individual as a fashion accessory to the rich and famous can act as a good deterrent to the over-enthusiastic fan, but it will not necessarily deter the mentally ill,...

Security tips for women

Posted by Spartan 24 Hour Security on Wednesday, June 5, 2013, In : Personal Security 

When travelling on your own by foot or public transport, especially to a destination you haven't been to before it pays to stay alert to what's going on around you. Always take your mobile phone and tell a family member or friend you'll call them when you reach your destination. Send them texts throughout your journey so they know you are OK. Take the busiest and most well lit route, if travelling by bus always sit close to the driver. If by train, try and sit in a compartment with other peop...
