What is keyholding? And why it’s “key” to your business security.
What is Keyholding?
Keyholding is simply a specialist service that helps business owners protect their business. A contracted security service, like us, will hold a set of spare keys in a secure off-site location that will be used to respond to any alarms raised on-premises. Leaving you with the peace of mind that a professionally trained team will be responding to any incidents.
Who is Keyholding for?
Anyone that is responsible for the security of a business, property or even a construction site can take advantage of Keyholding. Security companies are experts and handling a range of individual security requirements, be it a retail business with shoplifting risks, or a construction site with valuable tools left overnight.
What are the benefits?
The main benefit of Keyholding is the relief that you have a professionally trained team on standby, able to handle an incident. But here are a few other reasons why key holding can be so valuable:
- Speed – Sometimes you are out of the office, or even out of the country and are unable to handle an alarm being raised. Key holding allows an external security company to immediately respond to every alarm, even false alarms, and give you a full report.
- Evidence collection – Sometimes incidents are easily resolved, but other times they are serious, and a team that is professionally trained in crucial evidence collection can provide much needed relief.
- De-escalation – Security guards are not designed to bulldoze a situation with brute force, they are professionally trained in de-escalation to prevent potentially volatile situation becoming more serious.
