In general, the responsibilities of a security guard encompass protecting property and equipment, while also protecting your employees, visitors and the public.
Security guards will provide a crime deterrent by their presence and should be considered a vital part of your team, to ensure the smooth running of your commercial premises. These professionals can also be hired to control crowds and traffic at events, video and CCTV surveillance and specialist warehouse security guards.
Reasons to hire a security professional are varied in nature but will involve the guard carrying out security duties such as protecting company property, responding and checking alarms and security equipment, patrolling the commercial property and controlling access to the buildings.
The typical duties of a security officer can also include enforcing company rules and responding to internal emergencies. Sometimes the officer can be asked to provide admin support, such as telephone assistance, greeting and checking in visitors and liaison assistance between different departments.
Security guards are trained to be first responders, which means they can provide emergency first aid, and support in emergency situations, by communicating critical information to help resolve emergencies.
