Before selecting a security guard firm, you need to decide on the type of security service required and the roles you need security guards to perform. This will depend on the nature of your business. Hotels, special events, personal protection, educational facilities and office buildings all have different security needs. A small retail business may only need a security monitoring service with back-up patrol, while a hotel or club is likely to require a 24 hour security presence on site.
Once you have determined the type of security service needed, the next step is to decide on the level of protection required. Plain clothed and unarmed security guards are best if you own a retail store and the objective is to catch shoplifters. Uniformed guards are a better choice as a deterrent, while armed guards may be necessary when protecting valuable inventory or cash in transit. Security guards with higher levels of training will be able to perform the higher level security requirements.
With an initial understanding of your security needs, the next step is to interview three or four security firms in order to compare services and costs. Make sure that the security firms hold valid licenses. In all States and Territories, private security firms are required to be licensed in order to offer security services. Also, make sure the firms have an adequate level of insurance for the services being provided. Ask for certificates of currency for policies such as Public Liability and Workers Compensation.
It is also a good idea to interview the individual security guards to ensure an appropriate match for your business. You will have confirmed each guard’s training and qualifications prior to interview with the security firm, so the task now is to review personality and appearance. For example, if you require a plain clothed security guard for your retail store, then you need someone who looks like a typical customer in your store. If you need a security guard for your office building or hotel, the preference will be for someone with a corporate appearance and professional approach. If the security guard has to interact with people at a sporting venue or social event, you will want someone that is helpful and friendly. The key is to select security guards whose appearance and personality most closely align to your business requirements.
Security site risk assessments are often seen as tedious and a waste of time; and the truth is they can be. When treated as a “series of boxes to be ticked,” the exercise turns into a farce, adding no value and likely identifying few risks. However, a security site assessment that is completed effectively can add tremendous value, reduce costs and even contribute to numerous departments across the company. Here are some key points on how and why to complete a corporate security site risk assessment that isn’t a waste of time.
The most obvious benefit of completing a security risk assessment is the identification and mitigation of high-risk areas. However, there are additional, hidden benefits in this process also. For example, by getting the team involved in a robust risk assessment underpinned by effective communication, potential gaps can be identified, and concerns noted. A risk assessment provides employees and contractors with a voice not only regarding security but also Occupational Health & Safety and general workplace issues. It’s highly unlikely that a security assessment will only yield information that is useful from a security standpoint.
Continuing from point one, everyone gets involved in a security risk assessment. When done correctly, people are not simply sent an email asking them to point out any security concerns but are interviewed, either individually or as a group. While this is important from an internal communications standpoint, it also allows any issues to be double checked by other employees, “do you think the storeroom door is left open too much?” And increases the amount of buy-in for any changes that are made. It’s far more likely that employees will embrace new policies and procedures if they have had some involvement and their creation.
Communication is a two-way street, and security risk assessments are no different. While you are identifying high-risk areas and put new systems in place to reduce risk exposure, you will also inadvertently increase internal awareness through the process. It has been proven that company security is improved when it is part of the organisational conversation. By talking openly about the security of the business, vigilance and awareness will increase.
The first step in conducting a site assessment that works is formulating a communications plan. Work out how to best engage your employees, contractors and anyone else who has access to the site and manage it as you would any other project. Make it clear to everyone that you are serious about getting it done correctly, and that their views will be taken on board to form the basis of any changes that will be made.
