At Cypress Security we are as heavily concerned about the protection of your property as we are about the safety of our guards on your site. We ensure each guard is equipped with the necessary training and tools to keep your property protected as well as keeping them safe while on shift.
High-Visibility Vest This bright, reflective vest is worn to alert others to the guard’s presence. This is particularly important in dark areas or when the light is low.
Hard Hat Hard hats are required for all guards on construction sites, or anytime a client requests it.
Steel-Toe Shoes On sites where hazardous materials or construction is present, the guard must wear steel-toe shoes.
Marked Clothing All of our guards are professionally uniformed with our custom Cypress gear. We can also cater our uniforms to suit your requirements.
Flashlight All guards carry a flashlight for when the light is low
Reporting Our guards are required to observe, record and report all they see.
GPS Device Our guards come with a GPS tracking device that includes a panic button. In case of emergency, our monitoring centre is alerted and immediate assistance is dispatched.
Mobile Phone Our guards carry a mobile phone so that, in an emergency situation, they can place a call to 911 or our monitoring centre.
Each site has its own standing order which is placed on-site. Our guards have access to information provided by the client, such as the site’s emergency contact and after-hours contact. This also includes information on whereabouts of emergency equipment, such as backup generators, first aid kits, fire alarms, hydrants and extinguishers. The guard is also made aware of the best route to follow in an emergency such as a fire, explosion or chemical leak.
Cypress Security makes it mandatory for the guards to have the knowledge and skills to protect their health in the workplace. Our guards may not work directly with hazardous materials but may be exposed to them at work. Our guards are familiar with the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System symbols and know how to respond to hazardous situations.
