ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THE PROTECT DUTY?
If any good can come out of the murder of 22 innocent young lives at least Martyn’s Law (named after Martyn Hett who was tragically murdered in a terrorist attack in Manchester in 2017) now known as the ‘Protect Duty’ might just do that & save lives in the future should terrorists strike.
So what is the ‘Protect Duty’ and what are the implications for you? And who is it likely to apply to?
IMPLICATIONS FOR YOU?
The Government considers that the owners and operators of public venues and large organisations should be required to:
Carry out a Terrorism threat & risk assessment at locations they own or operate
Take ‘reasonably practicable’ protective security and organisational preparedness measures to reduce the threat. If you think of this as similar to a Health & Safety risk assessment then you should mitigate the risks. For example staff training, developing a strategy that ensures you have assessed your site and its uses and include suitable mitigation measures
Develop a robust plan on how to deal with or act as a result of a terrorist attack.
For smaller organisations and venues, this would involve simple low-cost measures, such as:
Staff training of threats, identifying hostile reconnaissance, likely attack methods and importantly how they should respond
Practicing/exercising how you want staff to respond in the event of an attack.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?
For starters you shouldn’t wait for legislation before protecting your staff, customers and business against terrorism.
