How Manned Guarding Could Be Perfect for Your Business

When it comes to security, a strong defence is vital. Since criminals like to pry on easy targets, your business needs to be secure. An SIA-licenced guard on site allows you to have the strongest level of protection.

Manned guarding is a great way to ensure that your business stands up to any outside threats, ensuring that any crimes are instantly observed, allowing you to carry out your duty of care as a business owner to protect staff and any visitors.

What is Manned Guarding?

Manned guarding is when you have a security person on-site monitoring who enters the building, inspecting any possible threats and more. As opposed to alarm response and mobile patrols, having a guard on site allows guards to respond quicker and better identify threats before the worst happens.

When threats are low, our SIA-licenced guards can carry out a number of tasks that help in the day-to-day running of your business, such as front-of-house access. They also help to identify hazards, defects and security threats. This allows your business to be proactive with its security, setting the foundations for long-term protection. This is much more effective than just reacting when a breach happens.

Benefits of Manned Guarding

A Visible Deterrent

Security is much more than just having systems in place to defend against attacks. Having a visible security guard on site is sometimes intimidating enough to stop any would-be criminals from trying their luck in the first place. Better yet, as great as CCTV and alarms are, having a guard on site increased the chances of offenders getting caught red-handed.

Reassure Your Visitors

Your staff, customers and any visitors have a right to feel safe at your premises. As a business owner, you have a duty of care to ensure that they are protected. In areas where crime is high, having a guard on site helps people on location to relax and feel more comfortable. This also helps to drive the focus of your employees, allowing them to do their best work.

Be Proactive

So many businesses suffer great losses due to not responding quickly enough to crime. We don’t want you to become another statistic. Our manned guarding allows you to be proactive with your security and are specially trained to respond in the best way possible, often intervening before or while the crime is taking place, so you don’t have to spend time picking up the pieces afterwards.
