What Kind of Equipment do Security Guards Need?

December 8, 2017 · Print This Article

Security guards are a prominent feature in many parts of our country. Rising crime rates have led to businesses, residential complexes and home owners investing in hiring security guards to protect themselves, their staff and their families.

If you have appointed security guards, then you will need to make sure that they have the right equipment as well as corporate clothing for the job. Here’s a brief overview of what they will need:

  • Uniforms

Branded uniforms will help the staff and residents identify security guards. Not only will this help them spot any unauthorised people on the property, but it will also show them who they can turn to if they need help. The uniforms should be comfortable and have the word ‘security’ on them, as well as a logo if needed.

  • The right footwear

Security guards are on their feet for many hours of the day. You need to make sure that they are wearing comfortable footwear, which means quality shoes. If security guards are required on construction sites, then you may also have to invest in protective safety boots to protect them from safety hazards and dangers.

  • Tools

The type of work that the security guard does will impact the equipment and tools that you need to invest in. If they are working night shifts, then you will need a flash light. You may also consider a belt that can hold a flash light, pen, whistle or other items that they will have to have on hand.
