Security Guard Services for Construction Site

May 5, 2020


WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Making sure your construction site security guard provides a diligent service is not an easy task. It is not until something suspicious happens that you would doubt your security guard’s quality of service. There is no particular set of metrics that would measure your security guards as good and bad, but the simple equation of quality being equal to efficiency can resolve most of your doubts about security guard services Vancouver. As the owner of a construction site, you definitely have little to no time to spend on supervising your security among the boatload of work you have to manage. However, until you face painful bankruptcies and the profits start to deteriorate, you would not know that your equipment, sources and the construction site had not been taken care of. Before it is too late, we have a simple list of signs that would tell you to what extent your construction site security guards are providing an excellent service. Security services Vancouver would say just about anything to cover up for their security guards’ performance, which is why their service evaluations would not always work. The best thing is to check for yourself, and the actions we suggest are of no complexity at all. As a leading security guard provider in Vancouver, Securiway is pleased to offer you the best tips ever.

EVERY NOW AND THEN, ARRIVE EARLIER THAN YOU NORMALLY DO

It is natural for every worker to work harder and better when the boss is around. Informed visits can do your evaluation process no good because the quality of service would definitely rocket up when the security guards know they are under supervision. To avoid this standard flow in supervising visits, you can be a little tricky and arrive earlier than usual. This way, you can keep careful track of who “really” commits to work and who seemingly “appears” to do so.

OCCASIONAL NIGHT VISITS

What is even more unexpected than an early morning arrival is a startling night visit. Most security guards malfunction at night, either by dozing off, fooling around, drinking or chatting up. After 11 pm till 3 pm, it is commonly recorded that the security guards slack off in the construction sites because no one is around to check. Paying unexpected visits to the construction site during these hours can not only help you notice who works best and who cheats but also create a sense of suspense and apprehension in the minds of your security guards. Even if they got caught goofing around the first time, the experience would establish a sense of pre-warning in their minds.

TALK TO YOUR SECURITY GUARDS DURING VISITS

It is not enough to act bossy around the construction site by walking around the security guard posts. Just because you hire the security guards does not mean it is a misdemeanor to talk to them about their work experience. You can ask general questions that would both make the security guard feel that they are being monitored and paid attention to, and make you feel confident about hiring them in the first place. You can also check whether they understand the role of a security guard well 

  • Complete every visit by asking:
  • When he/she last went on patrol?
  • What occurrences has he/she witnessed lately?
  • Did he/she observe anything unusual among them?
  • When is the next patrol due?

LOOKOUT FOR SLEEPERS

Sleeping during duty is one of the major causes of severe thefts and break-ins most of the time. Even if nothing of the sort happens, a sleeping security guard primarily eliminates the purpose of hiring a security guard in the first place. You can check for possible sleeping signs like shirts or jackets rolled up to form makeshift pillows, dimmed lights in the security posts, irregular patrol schedules, footprints on chairs and bleary, disoriented security guards when you check in on them. Just keep in mind that these signs would only be observable if you pay unexpected visits because by the time the construction site usually triggers into operation; all the signs of sleep would be cleared up by the security guards.

CHOOSE A SECURITY COMPANY THAT HAS A PATROL TRACKING SYSTEM

Nothing does better tracking than technology. A security guard company that has an advanced tracking system for its employees is your best choice for a security company. Such companies utilize NFC technology, GPS and radio-frequency identification for their tracking systems. Either way, you can get a guarantee for security patrol tracking and supervision like no other. However, within working spaces, some technologies fail to function, so a patrol tracking service that amalgamates GPS technology with FRID (Radio frequency identification) is the best pick.

CHOOSE A VANCOUVER SECURITY COMPANY THAT DOES FIELD INSPECTIONS

Even if the security guard supervision plan sounds great, it is highly unlikely that you would have time to perform it by yourself continuously. This is why security companies that offer field security inspectors and supervisors are a better choice than a company that does not. Field inspectors would determine whether the patrols happen in order, the security guards provide their optimum service and whether the guards face the daily challenges with confidence.

READ YOUR SECURITY GUARD REPORTS

The reports written by your security guards should not be dismissed or preserved to be used later only when something happens. Read the check-in and check-out times, patrol shifts, and notes on unusual and suspicious behavior. The security guards must keep separate sections in their reports for the separate locations they visit. Keeping the reports properly checked can also give you a general overview of your construction site and its security.

FINAL THOUGHTS ON SECURITY GUARDS

Every security guard Vancouver is bound by their contracts to provide an active, efficient service – but this rarely happens as it should. Some security companies would trick you into giving the best service when all they have to offer is a bunch of lazy, disoriented security guards. Before hiring and during shifts, you have to be aware of the potentials of your security guards. Follow these necessary steps, so that you will be able to get the best service out of the security guards, and the investment you make will pay off.
