In the security industry, consulting functions will be much more needed. Apart from years of experience, the ability to design event safety in the pandemic era is something event organizers are looking for.
The need to present events that comply with health protocols will undertake an easier decision gesture for event organizers to select a more reliable security consultant to work with. In Nawakara, to absorb these needs, we develop services on various sides.
We are moving from the start. Based on crowd control, we have developed an effective system to make sure the flow of visitors are moving in an efficient manner. The crowd control system includes responding to the number of people who can enter based on the area of the building, crowd limitation number with queue points, health and safety protocols such as providing stations for rapid tests and disinfectant spraying areas.
This creates a difference with the situation before the pandemic occurred where consultation must be accomplished whilst the venue selection. Consequently, the event safety standards can be designed at an early stage.
In a pandemic era, the word safe develops. Not only against the threat of crime and chaos but also on health correlation. For that, it is inevitable, thus security will have a strong connection with the health protocol control. Henceforth, the security team will be the executor and guardian of the health protocol.
