With the Covid-19 pandemic, everything is changing, and this includes the role of security guards and security companies. Unlike the pre-pandemic times, now it is very common to spot private security guards at public places.
Security guards perform a low-profile job securing people, property, and places. However, during the pandemic, their roles have evolved. They are no longer responsible for safety only. Security companies are training their security guards to promote and enforce social distancing.
Social distancing has to date been the most important precautionary measure against the spread of Coronavirus. Truth be told, it hasn’t been easy to ensure that people follow social distancing in public places.
During these testing times, retail and commercial businesses have hired security guards to impose social distancing. As a trusted security company in London, the security guards at ConiferGB are fully trained, knowledgeable, and equipped to perform diverse tasks. While they still focus on traditional security and safety of people and premises, they are also helping in enforcing social distancing.
To enforce social distancing, our security guards are helping businesses by:
- Limiting the number of people entering a building or shopping place.
- Ensuring social and physical distancing is maintained at all times by shoppers, visitors, and staff.
- Supervising queues.
- Safeguarding businesses, hospitals, and testing centers.
- Supporting local businesses and communities by offering patrolling services.
Businesses are taking several measures to implement social distancing. From installing markings that indicate a two-meter distance to devising crowd control systems.
