The purpose of this course is to raise awareness among all members of staff of the vulnerability issues associated with customer alcohol consumption at festivals and large events.

By completing this course staff will not only have a better understanding of these issues but will also gain knowledge of the steps to take to support vulnerable people they encounter in their role.

  • State examples of harassment, understanding the difference between flirting and sexual harassment
  • Respond appropriately to reported harassment and recognise potential predatory behaviour
  • Identify situations in which you might be expected to intervene and follow the recommended steps to intervene safely
  • Recognise situations when security, first aid or the welfare team should be called
  • Follow the correct procedures for dealing with common scenarios involving vulnerable customers, such as a customer who is alone or who has fallen asleep in the sun
