Texas Workplace Security Information
Access Control Management
For many office buildings, industrial facilities, and other areas, access control is one of the most important duties of private security officers. If this is not done effectively, tragedy may be the result. To keep an unauthorized person from entering a building and causing harm to others, Ranger Guard and Investigations trains all officers given workplace security assignments in various aspects of access control management. This involves such aspects as maintaining and updating current lists of tenants, employees, vendors, and others who are allowed access to a building, identifying and creating various access levels for personnel, and creating and issuing appropriate identification badges for personnel and visitors.
In addition to security services, Ranger officers are also responsible for performing many different types of communication services during their assignments. This often involves being stationed at a front desk, where they check visitors in and out, answer telephones, provide directions and other instructions to various individuals, and use various surveillance methods to ensure all areas are safe. However, these services also apply to emergency situations. Therefore, all Ranger officers are trained in emergency communications, as well as coordination of emergency command centers that are set up with the help of police, fire, and rescue personnel.
Evacuations and Medical Emergencies
When attempting to describe security procedures in the workplace to prospective clients, we at Ranger Guard and Investigations stress not only the security aspects, but also the safety aspect as it applies to evacuations and medical emergencies. Because of this, our officers receive extensive training in First Aid/CPR, elevator entrapment, fire drill procedures, multi-floor evacuations, special evacuation procedures involving handicapped and disabled individuals, and many other related areas. By possessing this training along with their standard security training, officers from Ranger Guard and Investigations can be prepared to handle any situation they confront.
Parking Garage Security
In many workplaces such as hospitals, office complexes, and others, parking garages are located nearby to allow employees and visitors the extra convenience of parking near to a facility. However, along with their convenience comes the added risk of various crimes taking place in these areas. Whether it is vandalism, theft from vehicles, or even sexual assaults late at night, it is imperative to have parking garages under constant surveillance and patrolled on a regular basis by skilled private security officers. Due to the many threats that come with parking garages, when we define the term security with respect to the workplace, parking garage security is one of our top priorities. Therefore, along with making sure these areas stay as safe as possible, Ranger officers also perform such duties as parking space administration and parking enforcement.
