The Level 5 Award in Crowd Safety Management
The Square Metre Group (Crowd Safety Training) are proud to offer this industry-leading Ofqual regulated qualification, which is new for 2020.
The Level 5 Award in Crowd Safety Management (RQF) incorporates all of the learning from our former Crowd Science and Risk Analysis programme which has been successfully delivered across the world to thousands of crowd safety professionals.
If you are in charge of people in crowded spaces, you need to understand the principles and applications of Crowd Safety Management (CSM) and Crowd Science, specifically Crowd Risk Analysis. This course teaches event professionals the principles and applications of Crowd Safety and Crowd Science and draws on over 30 years of experience and research by Crowd Safety Managers who are responsible for some of the worlds leading events.
Aims of the course
To develop greater awareness of how individuals and crowds react, and behave in crowd places . To explore the application of modelling techniques and tools to enhance public safety.
Who should apply
Those who design for, plan or manage the movement of people in sport, entertainment, shopping, transport or similar environments. It will benefit site or venue operational managers, stewarding and security organizations, police officers with crowd management responsibilities, architects working in the complex and built environment and local authority officers with licensing, planning, building control or leisure management responsibilities.
Typical delegates include site or venue operational managers, stewarding and security organisations, emergency services, organising committees, railway station personnel, architects and local authority officers with licensing, planning or leisure management responsibilities
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Understand crowd risk analysis – how to identify hazardous situations for event planning and licensing.
- Understand the movement of crowds in the complex and built environment for normal and emergency behaviour.
- Demonstrate how to model an event by crowd phases (Arival, Last Mile Ingress, Circulation, Egress and Dispersal) and crowd influences (Design, Information and Management).
- Explain crowd modelling and risk analysis applications for planning, designing and managing spaces where crowd form and move.
- Apply guidance on the management of crowd flow and movement for a wide range of places of public assembly.
- Describe how to present the key elements of crowd risks and crowd safety to an audience
During the Level 5 Award in Crowd Safety management, we apply our unrivalled knowledge of the science of crowds to your case studies and events. How and when your crowd reaches critical density, and how the effects of design, information and management systems influence your crowd’s behaviour. These are vital elements to understanding crowd safety at your event. We help your staff individually or collectively to understand crowds, to plan for and keep crowds safe, to understand and facilitate peaceful protests. Hosting the workshops at your site so that your team can work and learn together.
The course takes the delegates from basic understanding of crowd risks and crowd safety in places of public assembly and works through the principles and applications of causality for major incidents. During the course delegates are taken through their own site/case related issues and by the end of the three day workshop they will understand how individuals and crowds react to and behave in available space in places of public assembly. They will also have explored the safety implications for designing and managing such spaces using the appropriate modelling tools and will be able to apply risk management techniques to the development of a robust crowd management plan.
