BHA warns operators to consult security guidelines as they get ready for London 2012

The British Hospitality Association (BHA) has urged its members to consult security guidelines in preparation for the London 2012 Olympics.

Operators that haven't yet implemented security plans should use the BHA's toolkit in order to do so, the trade body advised.

The BHA is working with the Community Safety & Security Communication (CSSC) project to help inform the hospitality industry of issues regarding public safety and security, particularly during the Olympic Games period with a legacy for the future.

The CSSC, part of the collaboration between London First and the Metropolitan Police Service, aims to facilitate a partnership with businesses and the public sector on issues of safety and security, with initial focus on improving the quality, scope and timeliness of sharing information.

To date up to 25 separate industry sectors have been identified by the project team and an industry sector lead (ISL) nominated for each sector. ISL's were predominantly identified as a person or body that maintain an existing form of communication on safety and security issues within their respective industry sectors.

Darren Carter, group security manager at Radisson Edwardian Hotels, will be managing the role of ISL along with two industry colleagues, Bob Stanbridge of Gouman Hotels, and Malcolm Clark of Marriott Hotels.

In preparation for the 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games a new guidance document for business has been created: Preparing your Business for the Games.
