All Security Guards have to have completed SIA Approved training and be issued with an SIA Badge before they can apply to be part of the Guardsman familiy. When they apply their application is background checked to the BS 7858 standard.
Guardsman fully understands that flexibility is key and that if you hired a Security Guard for 8 hours we appreciate that this could go to 10 or 12 hours depending on circumstances and we could accommodate this.
Changes to a contract can be made at any time, 24 hours' notice would give Guardsman and you the customer the time to ensure that the changes are implemented smoothly. We also appreciate that 24 hours notice is not always possible, in cases of emergency cover etc.
The Service Agreement for the provision of a Security Guard can be a one-off shift to a set amount of days/weeks/months all year round.
It is in everyone's interest that we deliver a high-quality service at all times. All Guardsman Guards have a proven track record in being punctual and professional, and Guardsman has a ZERO no show record.
Our rates are constructed taking into consideration your requirements, we conduct a site survey and a risk assessment, the results are put into a report that details how to minimise risk and improve security and safety. Quoting before those fundamental steps have been carried out would be just guesswork.
The site has RFID tags installed around the perimeter and in key areas, and as the Security Guard conducts his patrol he swipes these tags and the details of time and who swiped the tag are immediately uploaded to the control room, which operates 24/7. This information is available to you, the customer, in real-time.
In addition, hourly check calls are made; this is to ensure lone worker safety if only one Security Guard on-site, also these are made to rural locations even if there are two or more guards.
From the management side, both random and regular site visits are made to ensure Health and Safety is complied with and that the quality of work is maintained.
You have to love jargon! We have briefly touched on SIA and BS 7858:2012, to summarise these are bodies/accreditations that are there to help you the customer choose the best service for your requirements as all the fiddly, time-consuming parts have been taken care of.
The company contracting the Security Guard would need to provide the welfare utility. This is a place or a unit (depending on site) where the guards have shelter and access to water, electricity and sanitation.
