employees who work with


one another on a daily basis are in a position to recognise unusual behaviour which might be a sign that a colleague is struggling.”


THE GOOD PLACE: A SPACE FOR MENTAL HEALTH


Following data released by the Office for National Statistics in 2018 that revealed security officers in the UK die 20 years younger than the national average, Darren Read, Managing Director of Amulet, considers the causes of stress present in the industry and what employers can do to support the wellbeing of security staff.


Security officers in the UK die 20 years younger than the national average life expectancy. This startling statistic was revealed in data released by the Office for National Statistics in 2018.


The high level of occupational stress experienced in security roles has been closely linked to strains on physical health. These statistics have led to calls for security officers to receive more support in dealing with stress, mental health, and other health-related issues associated with the job.

Employee wellbeing initiatives are on the rise as an increasing number of companies recognise its importance. Indeed, Amulet’s parent company, the Churchill Group, has recently launched a comprehensive wellbeing plan.


However, certain roles require unique attention. Unlike many professions, security officers cannot withdraw from a situation just because they feel under threat. Officers are far more likely to be exposed to conflict and potentially traumatic situations than most other professions. As such, specialised policies need to be in place in security firms.
