When you choose Shergroup Security as your integrated security provider, you are choosing a company with heritage and integrity.

A warehouse is a place where you store important stock from your business. The majority of warehouses are occupied by big companies that manufacture essential products that we use daily. These companies depend on warehouses to store the items they produce. For business owners thefts could be the greatest unwanted cost they have to bear.

It’s a terrible reality that criminals, including your workers, target businesses in search of valuable products to resell for a profit. Warehouses can be attractive targets for this type of criminal behaviour, which is why warehouse owners should hire expert security guards to safeguard the facility and its precious assets.

The security guard sector has expanded significantly in recent years and shows no signs of slowing down. There are roughly 1.5 times as many security guards as there are police officers and sheriffs in the United States. Have you considered hiring a security guard to assist in keeping your company safe? If you want to go this route, make sure you employ a guard that can undertake a range of tasks. Are you unsure of what qualities to look for in a security guard? The following are ten security officer responsibilities that every guard should have.

 1. Stay Alert |

Any effective security officer needs to be able to keep attentive and aware at all times. Security guards are frequently on duty at night or during off-peak times. Guards must be on the watch throughout their shift, even while most people are relaxing, to ensure that no one enters a facility who isn’t supposed to or engages in any dubious behaviour. A security guard who is unable to maintain vigilance may endanger your renters or your business.

2. Show Integrity |

Whether they’re guarding a warehouse, an apartment building, or whatever in between, security guards must have honesty and integrity. A shady security guard puts your company in jeopardy. Even if they do not steal from the warehouse, they may make it more vulnerable to others who do intend to steal or harm the organisation in some way. This is why conducting a background check is such a crucial component of the recruiting process. It ensures that you are not hiring someone with a history of dishonesty or criminal behaviour.

3. Be Physically Fit |

Some people believe that all security guards do, during their shift is sit at a desk and maintain a watch on a computer screen. While this may be true for certain security guards, a good officer should nonetheless be physically fit. They may need to chase down or restrain someone, and if they don’t value their physical health, they won’t be able to execute their work well. Physical well-being is connected to increased mental acuity.

4. Communicate |

Security guards frequently interact with residents, employees, customers, and anyone who enter and exit an institution. A professional security guard will be able to speak clearly and appropriately with a variety of people, ensuring that only the appropriate people obtain and lose access to the facility. It’s also crucial to have good written communication.

At the end of each shift, security guards are frequently required to type up reports, and solid writing skills make it much easier for the next officer to grasp what happened while they were away.

5. Observe and Report |

It’s not enough for security agents to be vigilant and aware of what’s going on around them. They must also know when and how to disclose their findings to the appropriate authorities.

Security guards may have to describe what happened to police officers or paramedics. If they can’t remember exactly what happened, they risk jeopardising someone’s care or increasing the chances of the problem recurring.

6. Act Quickly |

When security personnel notices something unusual, it is their job to take action. They must be able to think on their feet and reply appropriately promptly. Someone with poor decision-making abilities may not be a good fit for your company’s security officer.

7. Maintain Order |

A security guard’s job is to keep the peace in specific situations. If they operate in a facility where demonstrations may occur, for example, they must be able to use their verbal skills and physical ability to keep unruly individuals or crowds in check. Security guards may also be confronted with obstinate individuals who refuse to follow instructions or who insist on getting admission to a facility while being rejected. Keeping the peace isn’t always simple, and it takes a certain kind of individual to curb the situations and keep everyone calm.

8. Know and Uphold Rules and Regulations |

A security officer must be able to swiftly pick up on a facility’s rules and regulations. They must memorise instructions so that they will know what to do in the event of an emergency. They must also be willing to follow those rules even when it is difficult or unpleasant for them to do so.

9. Provide Assistance |

One of the numerous advantages of having a security guard on staff is that they may assist residents, employees, and visitors. In some situations, they can even serve as your facility’s receptionist. When hiring a security guard, be certain that they are eager and ready to assist folks who require guidance or other sorts of aid.

10. Perform Specialized Tasks |

Finally, a security officer who can do specific responsibilities is quite beneficial to your company. Security personnel, for example, who can receive phone calls and respond to messages quickly will be a valuable asset to your organisation. When interviewing individuals, make sure to inquire about their additional abilities, in addition to the usual security-related skills.
