Title: Anticipated Effects of “UK Protect Duty” on Large Public Spaces and Venues

Description:

The ramifications of the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing and other attacks on venues continue to reverberate throughout global security, including in the United Kingdom. As of mid-2021, the UK has closed the consultation period for the “Protect Duty” - the latest step in a plan to introduce a new law requiring venue operators to consider the risk of a terrorist attack and take proportionate and reasonable measures to prepare for and protect the public from such an attack. Echoing changes already seen in the wider safety and health sphere globally, the proposals aim to encourage the development of an improved safety culture, charging those with a publicly accessible location to “protect.” What does this mean for venue operators and security professionals?
