What is crowd control?

Crowd control is all about looking after the safety of your valuable attendees by controlling and managing their movement thus making sure your event or site runs as smoothly as possible. Large crowds require conducting risk assessments and a focus on public safety, whether it’s a sporting event, worksite function, public celebration, or music festival. There are three main aspects of crowd control:

  • Staff - From ushers and security guards with security licences to First Aid experts.
  • Planning - Managing security risk situations, such as crowd control and managing queues is an important part of any event planning.
  • Infrastructure - Equipment such as traffic and crowd control barricades and signs can make a big difference to your event.

RSEA can help you find the right infrastructure to help make crowd control at your event as easy as it can be.


Carefully planned and managed Crowd control will ensure your event goes smoothly and the crowd or audience is safe and well-catered for. At its extreme, it’s about supervising a crowd of people and establishing queue systems to maintain order and prevent any poor behaviour, crushes, or even riots. As well as what is mentioned above, if you’re planning an event, think about these possible crowd control actions:

  • Stagger finish times to avoid bottlenecks at exits
  • Ensure transport is accessible at key exit points
  • Create multiple exits
  • Communicate clearly to ensure your audience knows how to behave and where to go

Types of crowd control barriers

As anyone in the events or security industry will tell you, a good barrier can make a big difference. RSEA’s crowd control barriers are fast and easy to setup, and perfect for any area where you need to divert pedestrians or protect the public. Choose:

Pedestrian & delineation barriers

Pedestrian & delineation barriers are all about safely diverting people from one place to another or keeping the public out of unsafe areas. These are more robust barricades which are water-filled and are intended for use where traffic speed limits are unlikely to exceed 20 km/h or as containment fences. Applications include events, carparks, pedestrian delineators, road closures, containment fencing and construction sites.  RSEA offers the following pedestrian delineators:

  • Arrow Delineator Barrier
  • Rhino Delineator Barrier
  • Armorzone Delineator Barrier

Crowd control signage for events

Signage also plays an important role in ensuring a crowd is well informed and behaved during an event. From instructing people where to go, to highlighting areas and behaviour to avoid, they form an essential part of crowd control at events. RSEA has a range of different signs for sale that can tie in seamlessly with your event, including:
