With the release of numerous Marvel movies recently, everybody is talking about superheroes. But do you know what is even more impressive than the Guardians of the galaxy or Ironman? A professionally certified SIA badge holder armband. They are the real-life security superheroes but often go largely unsung, so we thought we’d shed some light on what’s really involved in manned guarding.
They might not wear a cape and can’t fly at 100 miles per hour, but super hero security guards face adversity every day.
Here are 5 Ways that security are the real superheroes.
1 – Safer environments for both your customers and staff
The use of a customer facing security guard, at your building site or warehouse facility for example, can help protect both customers and staff from theft, violence and intimidation. Manned security guards are well-trained and are able to detect even the smallest of issues and appropriately deal with them before they escalate.
2 – Loss prevention
While a CCTV security camera can assist with the apprehending of thieves, the presence of a professional manned security guard, either stationed at the entrance or on visible patrol around your shop or business premises acts as a real deterrent and reduces the likelihood that a thief will consider your business a viable target. In the event that an individual does attempt to steal from your business then having a guard on hand lessens the chances of your business suffering losses. We provide exceptional wireless CCTV systems like the Videofied product to work alongside our team of security staff to maximise the prevention of any incidents occuring.
3 – Stopping unauthorised access
Having a manned security guard on-site can help prevent unauthorised access to your construction site. While at times trespassers can just be teenagers causing trouble, or homeless people looking for somewhere to sleep. More often than not people accessing building sites illegally do so only for one reason – to steal. Valuable construction materials, tools, and even plant machinery are the targets of such thieves, with a manned security guard incidents like this will be a thing of the past.
4 – Protection against damage and destruction of property and sites
Whether it’s people causing damage while trying to gain access to your property, or someone who’s had one too many to drink and are getting rather rowdy. A manned security guard can deter vandals and thieves as well as break-ins, via regular visible patrols and a strong on-site presence. At Viper Security we believe we are the number one provider of professional manned guarding services in the UK.
5 – More responsive than CCTV alone!
Does exactly as it says on the tin! – Manned guards are literally just that… professional security personnel that unlike CCTV guards are able to detect issues such as gas leaks and weather damage to rooftops. Manned security guards provide a more multi-sensory response, as it is highly likely that they will hear break-ins occur long before evidence can be seen via CCTV.
