When it comes to securing your premises, you should never compromise on the quality of your security service provision. Many organisations, however, do not have adequate resources in place, in order to ensure effective staff and property protection. Below, ESG Security has reviewed why consulting a professional security services company for your keyholding and alarm response requirements is always the best solution.

Fast and Flexible 24/7 Response

Unfortunately it is not always feasible to have employees on call if there is a security issue at your premises, especially if you only operate during normal working hours and, therefore, don’t have people in the building late at night. By using the services of ESG Security for keyholding and alarm response, you can depend on a high quality and well trained officer, to arrive immediately on-site in the event of an emergency or break-in, thereby minimising the possibility of damage and theft. You can enjoy complete peace of mind that ESG Security will provide round the clock protection throughout the year with little to no disruption to you or your members of staff.

As a responsible employer, safeguarding your workers will be high on your priority list. By allowing one of your employees to respond to a break-in or crime on your premises, you are potentially putting them in harms way.
