EBOOK: Are You Ready for The Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill?

Read this free eBook from Peoplesafe, covering what is set to be in scope in the incoming Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill, why it has been introduced, and advice for businesses on how to prepare. 

The new Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill will introduce a statutory duty for the owners and operators of publicly accessible locations (PALs) to take appropriate and proportionate measures to protect the public from terrorist attacks. This wide-ranging piece of legislation is seen as one of the biggest to ever impact the security sector.

Also known as ‘Martyn’s Law’ or Protect Duty, the Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill is borne from the growing number of terrorist attacks across the UK and the campaign by Figen Murray, the mother of one of the 22 victims of the Manchester Arena attack in 2017.

The bill will apply to a wide variety of venues with a capacity of over 100 people, affecting approximately 650,000 UK organisations. This includes public squares, open spaces, markets, transport hubs, retail stores, shopping centres, pubs and bars, hospitals, hotels, casinos, stadiums and music venues, festivals and museums.

It will follow a tiered model linked to activity that takes place at a location and its capacity, aimed to prevent undue burden on businesses. The Government will establish an inspection and enforcement regime, promoting compliance and positive cultural change and issuing proportionate sanctions for serious breaches.
With implementation imminent, are you ready for The Terrorism (Protection of Premises) Bill?
