What are the main reasons for hiring a static security service and how can it benefit your organisation?
There is a reason why Headline Security has been providing static security patrols to Southbank County Hall for over 20 years and The Old Vic Theatre for over 15 years. Our security service is not only useful but essential to the continued success of these organisations. Here we will look at the top four reasons for using static security and how it can benefit your organisation.
Reason #1 – Prevention of fires and flooding
The damage a fire or flood could do to your premises is not even worth thinking about. Carelessness by visitors or employees as well as faulty electrics or plumbing can lead to absolute disaster. Static security guards will patrol the area, checking for any safety risks which include potential fire or flooding hazards. The guards will then be able to report and prevent any hazards and ensure the situation doesn’t get any worse, saving your building from potential damage.
Reason #2 – The protection of people
One of the many reasons people hire static security for their premises is to ensure the safety of employees and visitors alike. Static security guards are on hand to spot any threat to a person’s wellbeing and take action to prevent injury, harm or distress. Threats can include assaults, accidents and emergencies which can be avoided if the right security team are in place.
Reason #3 – Preventing criminal damage
Unfortunately, vandalism is a common occurrence in our society, especially in London so your premises may be at risk of damage by vandals and criminals. A static security team will patrol the area, keeping an eye out for any criminal activity and ensuring it’s stopped in the most effective and appropriate way possible.
Reason #4 – Preventing theft of property
Depending on the nature of the organisation, theft can come in many shapes and forms. From the theft of expensive decorative pieces to people stealing sensitive information and documents, static security guards are able to put a stop to it. They can also prevent unauthorised access or use of equipment which can prevent a theft or breach of confidentiality before it even happens.
At Headline Security, we only employ the most qualified and professional security guards to carry out static security services. Our guards offer strict patrols which ensure the safety of your organisation. Find out more about our static security services here or get in touch with us today.
