If you’re not familiar with the term ‘static guard’ then chances are you’re confused about their job description. While the term ‘static’ might lead you to think they stand around in one spot all day this couldn’t be further from the truth. In truth, they are a long way from being stationary.
So what exactly does a static security guard do?
One of the many vital roles of a static guard is to conduct regular and thorough security patrols. While many people take this to mean searching for thieves, intruders, burglars and even murderers, MA Services have other measures in place for intruders.
Instead, the real job of a static security guard and the main reasons for security patrols are:
- To safeguard your property from flood, fire and any other damage
- To prevent accidents from happening
- To prevent and reduce your company’s resources waste
- To identify offences and take actions to prevent them
Static security guards perform their patrols at different times of the day and change their routes regularly so as to ensure an element of surprise should an incident occur. If anything untoward happens a static guard will always log the incident in an incident book designated for that purpose. This serves as important evidence should the police get involved.
Furthermore, our static guards remain in communication with our control centre and other colleagues so should contact be lost, we can take immediate action to determine the cause.
Other important aspects of a static guard’s job
