  1. Only thing I am aware of is the sunflower lanyard but that's not really specific to this issue, though would be a good indicator I suppose. I guess the level of people who would take the piss saying they are exempt when not will be such low numbers anyway, its probably not going to make too much of a difference. Though some of the people wearing masks and how they are wearing them, pulling rolled up dirty masks out pockets etc won't help either lol I just joke with the customers and ask them once they have put their mask on 'Are you here to rob the bank today'? Guess it's the only time when banks are asking people to put masks on and not take them off before entering 😅
  2. Nothing officialy Some info here and one available not download/print. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own But also be aware that the guidance states Those who have an age, health or disability reason for not wearing a face covering should not be routinely asked to give any written evidence of this. Written evidence includes exemption cards.
  3. Spot on. Am currently working on the door for a high street bank and today we probably had 99% compliance Some of the 1% genuinely didn't know they had to wear them in banks, and tbh I don't blame them as even the bank didn't even know till yesterday that they came under the new legislation... They currently don't in Scotland. They were of course allowed in and advised to bring one next time, as the bank won't refuse entry to anyone. There was approx 2-3 customers today out of the 311 that I clicked in today, that when politely asked if they had a face covering with them, just mentioned they were exempt and in they went. FYI the bank are not making staff exempt from wearing them, though most are.
  4. Indeed but they can't enforce it, only the police can. If someone comes up and tries to get in without a mask and gets arsey about it then turns round and say they have exemption from a mask, that can also cause issues. I've seen people post on social media that no one at a shop etc has the right to ask about why they are not wearing one, and I can see their point too.. lots of hidden disabilities etc
  5. I'd suggest that's probably more down to the training in conflict management and physical intervention as part not the SIA course that I guess your shop staff don't have. Ironically Asda are one of the main supermarkets that still have inhouse security teams and they ar exempt from having an SIA licence..
  6. Visual deterrent. And for insurance purposes
  7. No but what's that relevant too? Are the above the law?
  8. As can anyone such as shop staff as it's a criminal offence under statute law. Not wearing a mask is not a statute law and not enforceable by Joe public, only the police and council enforcement officers
  9. There isn't and having been an SIA Door Supervisor for 12 years, we haven't got no more powers than you. A 5 day training course and a £210 license gives them zilch powers or anything more than shop staff have.
  10. They have no more powers than Joe public
  11. A lot of retail security are on the shit NMW that shop staff are on, why would it be down to them? PC plod are the law upholders, it's their job and not shop staff
  12. Good luck with that 👍 That would have been the normal 2021 dates anyway, here's hoping it's good to go then 😁
