Clarify Security Guard Role


New Member
Can some one update me if the rules have changed regarding security guard licence holders working at shops, Just i was in a discussion with some one saying "as a SIA security guard hasnt done conflicted managent they can no longer work at shops due to the queing out side so would need conflict management"

How true is this?

Many thanks guys.

It is incorrect.
Although it depends on the roles and responsibilities they are to carry out.
The confusion arises as people think that due to a liquor license the role is DS,
However the license is for off site consumption and therefore is not subject to the same restrictions.

The role being carried out by most is actually more of a stewarding role, with a small portion of customer relations.
