Keys to your premises are secured in a security case with its own unique seal and ID, and these numbers will be kept on the monitoring station escalation proceedure for safety reasons.
No key will ever have the corresponding address located with the key also they are regularly audited when the seal is broken to ascertain the reason for this.
The security case, when operational, will be secured in a safe in the mobile response vehicle. When non operational, it will be secured in a vault
room. This service can work in partnership with mobile patrols and emergency response giving you better peace of mind and security.
By having a professional security company responding to alarms and emergency call outs gives you the peace of mind that no matter what happens we will have the experience and professionalism to handle things quickly and efficiently. We come from a vastly experienced network of security professionals, it is this knowledge and understanding that you will benefit from.
5 Reasons why you should use a keyholding company
More and more insurance companies are advocating the use of professional keyholding services to remove risk from personnel and as a stop-loss in emergencies.
Employers must ask themselves whether it is reasonable to ask staff to attend alarm activations late at night or at the weekends. Is acting as a keyholder in their contracts? Have they been trained? Have you fully demonstrated that everything has been done to look after them at these vulnerable times and the relevant risk assessment been done by a licensed security assessor? Often it can be inconvenient and sometimes even dangerous. There are ever-changing Health & Safety Regulations covering lone workers, but fundamental policy is contained in The Health and Safety at Work Act, 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations, 1999. These state that; ‘It is the employer’s duty to assess risks to lone workers and take steps to avoid or control risk where necessary.’ (Working Alone in Safety: HSE) The government has produced a leaflet on good practice for employers to consider for their lone workers, titled “WORKING ALONE IN SAFETY”. This can be viewed at www.hse.gov.uk and search for document INDG73.
Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 (CMA)
For more severe incidents, on the 6 April 2008, the CMA came into force throughout the UK. The new offence was created to provide a means of accountability for very serious management failings across an organisation. This is an opportunity for employers to think again about how risks are managed. The offence does not require organisations to comply with new regulatory standards, but organisations should ensure they are taking proper steps to meet current legal duties. The Act will mean that those who disregard the safety of others at work, with fatal consequences, are more vulnerable to very serious criminal charges. The new offence is intended to work in conjunction with other forms of accountability such as gross negligent manslaughter for individuals and other health and safety legislation. The full text of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 is available on the Office of Public Sector Information website: www.opsi.gov.uk.
