ProVOD: Professionalization Of Stewards As An Autonomous Part Of The Private Security Industry
This project is funded by the research programme „Civil Security – New Economic Aspects“ (Neue ökonomische Aspekte) as a part of the framework programme „Research for Civil Security“ (Forschung für die zivile Sicherheit) by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The title of this joint project is „Professionalization Of Stewards As An Autonomous Part Of The Private Security Industry ”
Large events (festivals, sporting events, concerts) are a part of modern society’s free time activities. Private security and stewards are essential for guaranteeing a safe event. Their work is a complex combination of interaction between visitors and coordination between other safety related personal (police, fire brigade, paramedics). Nevertheless, the branch is characterized by low wages, high turnover rates and a low reputation compared to other safety related personal.
