Security guards are individuals
employed in a position of trust toguard
valuables from theft, criminal damage or shoplifting. Historically, security
guards were employed to guard static locations and deter potential trespassers
but today their role is more complex.
Our security guards can take on a
number of roles from patrolling busy retail shopping centres to sorting mail in
a reception. It really depends on the client requirements what the security guard’s
duties will be.
Security guards licensing requirements
The Security Industry Authority
(SIA) is the regulatory body that governs the private security industry in the
UK under the Private Security Industry Act 2001. It is illegal to work as a
security guard without a valid SIA licence.
Holding a valid SIA license is the
minimum legal requirement to work within the private security industry.
However, the SIA had advised that security guards should be vetted to British
Standard (BS) 7858 for security vetting to ensure only individuals of good
character can work within the security industry. BS 7858 is the industry standard for security
vetting which includes due diligence regarding 5 years employment history,
references, credit checks and criminal record.
Bravo Security Limited undertakes
stringent due diligence before offering security guards to a client location.
The security guard’s selection and vetting process is undertaken at senior
managerial level to ensure only suitable individuals with relevant experience
and good character are sent to the client location.
