Keyholding Security Services

A specialist keyholding service should be the next step your company take to tighten security measures.

The Oakwood Security keyholding service is proven to minimise physical risk and inconvenience to businesses and organisations, such as schools, universities and manufacturing services. By trusting Oakwood to act as the primary key holder for your business, you quickly alleviate the stress and inconvenience of alarm response duty.

Prior to beginning the key holding service, Oakwood will carry out a thorough Risk Assessment and site survey. A full set of Assignment Instructions will be completed to ensure the operatives know your property inside out, which will eliminate any confusion should action need to be taken.

Oakwood officer's are closely monitored in terms of overall performance, with key performance indicator analysis carried out regularly. All officer’s are SIA licensed, uniformed and highly trained to ensure a professional manner and appearance is upheld.

Your keys will be held unmarked and secure at a nearby 24 hour Mobile Response Unit, who respond to activations in an efficient and professional manner. Oakwood will deploy a trained security operative to your property within 20 minutes of an alarm going off. If necessary, Oakwood will liaise with a company representative, the police, alarm companies or repair contractors, all whilst re-securing the premises as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Using this service dramatically reduces the danger to yourself and other employees who act as key holders. In the event of an alarm going off at night, a key holding employee could possibly be walking into a very hostile environment. By putting your employee into a potentially dangerous scenario, you are at risk of facing legal charges should they be injured. That’s where Oakwood can help; a highly trained professional will be dispatched to undertake this responsibility and eliminate physical and litigation risks to yourself and your employees. You also hand over responsibility of inconvenient false alarm activations as Oakwood will be on hand to resolve this too.
