Manned Guarding

Manned guarding should be an imperative part of any business or organisation. The power of having a security guard present on a premises is extremely important to ensuring safety and security is maintained.

All Oakwood security guards and officers are SIA licensed, uniformed accordingly, trained and equipped at dealing with guarding against unauthorised access, disorder, theft or damage. The manned guarding service relies human resource, therefore blind spots are non-existent in the surveillance areas.

The security guards deployed are highly trained individuals who are skilled at spotting an issue before it advances. Should a security breach occur it is guaranteed to be dealt with quickly whilst maintaining and protecting the property and company assets. Additionally, if an issue did occur, you immediately have an onsite first hand witness to ensure the correct evidence is given and procedures are adhered to.

Prior to deploying a security guard to your business, a thorough Risk Assessment and site visit will be conducted, to ensure the correct service is provided and all your security needs are met. All Oakwood management staff and guards know the operational areas very well, so advice can be offered on further security measures if believed necessary.

The type of guard you choose to employ is important to not only keeping your premises safe, but also creating a respectable and welcoming image of the company. If necessary, they can be on hand to welcome visitors, at the same time as offering a reassuring presence to your customers and staff.

Smaller businesses may choose to employ a 9 - 5 guard, who is on site in ‘working hours’ to ensure the safety and security of customer’s and staff alike. Larger organisations such as schools, universities and manufacturing premises may decide on a 24/7 guard who is highly skilled at dealing with any situation that may arise.

Due to the heightened security risks, the presence of a security guard should be paramount to business owners across the UK.
