Many businesses still expect one of their staff members to be on call in case of alarm activations or other emergencies.
If this is the case in your business there are one or two thing you should consider:
First and most important is the fact that you have a duty of care to your employee. There are several Health & Safety aspects to consider.
Do you expect them to respond as quickly as possible when they are half asleep and quite possibly had a relaxing drink before bed? Is this likely to turn a normally safe driver into a dangerous one?
Have you provided adequate training in how to respond to an emergency? Are they familiar with the premises at night. Do they have backup?
It isn’t just the risk of confronting an intruder. If they fall and hurt themselves will anyone know? Are they going to lie there injured until you get there in the morning? What if it’s Saturday night and you won’t be in until Monday?
I could go on for an hour about potential hazards and disadvantages. Suffice it to say that you could avoid them all for about seventy pence a day, just by getting Jayfort Security to deal with the problem for you!
