Commercial key holding and alarm response

Are you putting your staff at risk by asking them to be key holders and responding to alarm activations out-of-hours?

You should be very cautious about requesting your employees to attend your site following an out-of-hours alarm activation - the following questions highlight why: 

  • Do you have an effective health and safety lone worker system in use?
  • Does your insurance cover staff who attend your site alone? 
  • Who will support your employee if they are confronted or even attacked by an offender?
  • Does your employee have the confidence and received satisfactory conflict management training to go into a situation where they may have to deal with an offender?
  • How will you provide adequate response cover when your key holder is away, sick or has been drinking alcohol?
  • Can your key holders be on site and have addressed the alarm within 20 minutes of the call?
  • Are your key holders trained in crime scene management, including the preservation of evidence?
