Because workplace problems can happen any day, at any office, your business needs a proper workplace security system in place to keep everyone safe. Thieves or vandals targeting your business, or an internal work problem that spirals out of control can happen at any time. Protecting offices and workplaces requires security officers who are knowledgeable, experienced and look professional.
Ranger Guard officers understand the complexities of contemporary office building security. Ranger Guard offers the full spectrum of workplace security services from loss prevention programs to armed corporate security guards.
Read on to find out about workplace security services and how Ranger Guard can keep your business safe.
What is Workplace Safety and Security and Why is it Important?
Ensuring employees are protected while they are at work is the responsibility of the company. Workplace violence occurs every day in America and staff are more concerned than ever about their safety. Risks could come from a disgruntled employee, robberies, or an unhappy customer that won’t take a hint to leave.
Therefore responsible business owners take corporate office security precautions by putting in place a workplace security plan. Hiring a trusted professional firm like Ranger Guard is the best way to make sure everyone stays safe on the job.
What Does a Corporate Security Service Do?
Onsite security guards are typically brought in to perform a range of functions. These include escorting clients and visitors who are only onsite temporarily to their appointments, maintaining access control of the site, protecting property and specific valuable assets, and managing parking security. In high-risk environments armed guards are available to protect against fatalities.
Some of the more commonly requested features provided by Ranger Guard to address special workplace concerns are listed in this section.
Who is allowed in and who should be kept out is very important. Access control management includes data management. Ranger Guard will update and maintain lists of workers, vendors, and other authorized personnel. We will create tiered access levels for staff, and make and issue identification cards and badges. By carrying out proper access control, Ranger Guard security officers keep everyone much safer during their workday.
Installing Security Infrastructure
These technical solutions include lighting, alarm systems, access gates, and surveillance cameras. These infrastructure improvements can significantly enhance the ability of a small number of officers to keep a large property safe.
Cameras alone will never be enough. Officer patrols both on foot and by vehicle need to be performed regularly. Unlike many other security firms, Ranger Guard approaches mobile patrolling and foot patrolling from a unique perspective. By performing random patrols of various areas, along with using different patrol routes each time, it becomes impossible for anyone to determine a set patrol pattern, making it difficult to know when an area will not be under surveillance. By using these patrol methods, many property owners of apartment complexes, and other facilities have reported decreases in crime of more than 20 percent after only a few weeks.
Ranger Guard requires officers to take photos or videos while on patrol and upload them to a client-access website via mobile devices. This enables clients and security supervisors to know exactly what is happening in real-time.
Many workplaces such as hospitals or office complexes have parking garages nearby for employees and visitors. Vandalism, theft from vehicles, or even sexual assaults late at night are all risks which come with this convenience. Ranger Guard secure such areas along with carrying out parking space administration and enforcement along with video surveillance surveillance and regular foot patrols by skilled private security officers.
Whether it’s a small local event with only a few hundred attendees or a football game or concert hosting thousands, event security is complex and challenging. Ranger Guard officers will perform specialized security procedures specific to corporate and business events including bag searches, ID verification, crowd control, and maintaining deterrence using K-9 agents.
Business executives, celebrities and other prominent individuals often require constant personal protection. Due to the sensitivity of the job, Ranger Guard assigns guards with many years of security experience. While sometimes bodyguards will wear plainclothes, mostly they wear clean pressed police-style uniforms with polished black shoes. Most officers assigned to protect VIPs have previous law enforcement or military experience in live situations.
To protect against threats and attacks, businesses are turning to VIP private security agencies to guard people and property.
How to Choose the Right Workplace Security Program
Keeping people safe from physical harm by reducing the risk of violence will always be the first priority of any devoted security company. Ranger Guard is no different.
Security in the workplace is complex and has many different aspects which must be taken into account when designing your program.
The different areas of security can be broken down into different forms of protection:
This includes mitigating legal liability and maintaining front of house communications with clients, business partners and members of the public. All security guards actions while on duty reflect on your company and must be tailored towards advancing your goals.
Ranger Guard works to make sure that any security issues have minimal disruption to your business. If a workplace dispute gets out of hand and we need to escort someone from the building, clients need to know this will be done with discretion and speed.
Company property such as computers, furniture and building features like windows and doors are expensive to install and replace. Even where they are insured, too many incidents will see your premiums shoot sky high. A reputable workplace security firm such as Ranger Guard will protect your physical assets.
Surveillance cameras and adequate monitoring are usually a part of this plan, as well as theft prevention programs in retail operations. This also includes mitigating legal liability to protect your intellectual property and risk of losing money in lawsuits. If an incident takes place where an employee is harmed and your company did not take adequate steps to protect your employees, then you may be opening yourself up to legal problems, and that can get expensive.
Because of our system of rigorous daily report logs, Ranger Guard can provide you with the documented proof you need to prove your company took every reasonable precaution to keep your employees and clients safe.
From company secrets involving products to the personal data of employees, there is always the chance a person may attempt to steal information. Ranger Guard employs trained investigators using state-of-the-art surveillance methods to uncover potential wrongdoing in a workplace. Protecting highly sensitive information is a high priority for many businesses.
Ranger Guard investigators typically have law enforcement or military backgrounds and then receive training in surveillance and computer forensic analysis, enabling them to get the evidence needed to answer the toughest questions.
If regular problems happen at your place of business, clients will be afraid to work with you. Ranger Guard knows how important image protection is. That’s why we make sure all our employees are dressed professionally and appropriately and police style uniforms and show up on the job with proper grooming standards.
Officers are required to arrive at their assignments wearing clean and pressed police-style uniforms, polished dark shoes, and have professional haircuts and minimal jewelry. In addition to security services, Ranger officers are often also responsible for front of house communication services during their assignments.
This often involves being stationed at a front desk, where they check visitors in and out, answer telephones, provide directions and other instructions to various individuals, making your company look good.
In an emergency Ranger Guard officers will coordinate communications with police, fire, and rescue personnel.
