What To Look For In A Security Staff Company

Essential things to look for in a Security Company

Essential things to look for in a Security Company

The UK currently has over 300 security companies operating in the security industry. So, you will have plenty of options. To help you sift through the white noise, we suggest that you should consider the below questions…
Reviews – Check the companies Google reviews. Any company can post reviews on their website. However, if you look on a review platform that allows the public to offer feedback you can be sure clients are happy.
SIA Accredited staff – Security in the UK is operated by The Security Industry Body. The independent body reports to the UK government to ensure compliance. Each staff member that you hire must have a unique licence.
Communication – The efficiency & professional in which a company deals with your request should be a good indication of the service levels you can expect moving forward. Communication is often not effective and professional.

Preparation and Equipment

When you contact a security provider, pay close attention to the questions they ask. If a company is prepared to offer services with minimal information about your event, this should raise alarm bells that they have not considered the risks / needs to be managed for you event. Remember, as a bare minimum the event organiser should be asking you…
• Event attendance
• Demographic of attendees
• Duties of security staff
• Details about the site / venue
• What equipment may you need? E.g. radios
If you do not have the event details yourself yet confirmed, it is reasonable to offer a quotation for budgeting purposes. It is however essential that full details are understood before any activity takes place.
