Three Different But Equally Important Reasons To Hire Professional Security Guards In 2021


There is definitely a feeling that the last few years have been chaotic. With political upheaval, environmental unrest and a global pandemic, there is a lot of uncertainty about the future in every workplace. For many, the thought of hiring security guards in the past seemed unfathomable but the past few years may have changed your opinion. Here are three reasons why you or your company might consider hiring security guards to help you avoid any potential dramatic scenarios you have seen on the news.

Vaccination Checks

A lot of retail businesses are going to be reopening to the public across Australia in the next few months, with the expectation that only those who are full vaccinated come in. For those who run businesses that expect their customers to follow this and want to protect those that do, hiring security guards for the transition period can be a good idea. A lot of retail companies currently use regular employees to ask people to check in with the available QR codes, but this may be unfair. For instance, they do not have the experience or the training to handle someone who might refuse, whereas professional security guards do.

Event Hire

In the same way that retail stores are opening back up, many people are planning large events now that they seem to be possible once more. However, for events like these, it will be tough for some people to behave. Not only do you have the threat of gate crashers but you also have the aforementioned risk of the unvaccinated. You also have individuals who haven't been drinking together in public for months, so the chance of rowdy behaviour is likely. Fortunately, a security guard service can help.

Monitoring During The Night

Perhaps you aren't so much worried about your business during the day, when you are there and can call for the police if need be, but rather at night. Nighttime security guards are commonly seen all across metro and suburban Australia to address the threat of burglaries and vandalism. Trained security guards know how to monitor all sorts of different security devices you may have, and perform routine check-ups to make sure nothing goes past unnoticed. For those who have had break-ins and broken windows before, having a security guard around at night just makes everyone feel a lot safer. 

As things transition, it's important to be safe. Contact a security guard service to learn more.

Using mobile security technology

Mobile technology has made such a difference to our lives. It can be a valuable tool to help your business stay secure as well. This can be as simple as having a feed from your security cameras that goes directly to your phone or tablet, or as complex as having an application that measures the distance between your staff and their computer and automatically alerts them if someone is trying to log onto their computer while they are away from their desk. Using mobile technology to your advantage can be a great way to enhance your security at an affordable cost.
