Guarding during a pandemic: Why your business needs Regal’s Everyday Superheroes™

Whether our world is experiencing a global health crisis or not, the need for the physical presence of a trained security guard is growing. However the pandemic has actually increased that need even more.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses have been forced to temporarily close their offices, warehouses, restaurants and retail locations to prevent employees from going into work, and possibly getting the virus from each other, and community spread. This puts businesses in a vulnerable position to shoplifting and other kinds of problematic behaviours. But there are also many businesses that are essential and required to stay open during the pandemic, making their need for extra security measures with regards to the health and safety of both employees and the customers even greater.

As restrictions started to be lifted, and business started to reopen toward the end of 2021, and people began to return to work, the crime rate certainly didn’t reduce, and in fact increased exponentially. Therefore, the demand for on-site security has skyrocketed. For multiple reasons, 2022 is projected to be a record setting year for crime, and the need to deter and prevent it has never been greater.

This is precisely why Regal Security guards are highly trained, and fully equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to handle any level of security concerns better than anyone else on your premises, as well as being responsible for maintaining constant surveillance.

The presence of a dedicated and highly trained Regal Security guard is a deterrent to unwanted incidents from happening in the first place. All Regal Security guards have undergone comprehensive, mandatory 40-hour licensing training, as well as on-the-job training, providing every guard with the tools and knowledge they need to handle any situation should the need arise, in the most professional and effective way.

As the world opens up, some of the most highly active sectors of the economy, such as Hospitals, Malls, Airports, Retail, and Concierges at condos and apartment buildings, are in great need of trained security personnel, and Regal Security guards are in great demand especially in these locations, and that demand continues to increase.  In these locations, especially while the pandemic shows no signs of slowing, Regal Security guards ensure that everyone wishing to enter the property are following the health guidelines, such as wearing face masks and protective equipment that would help prevent the spread of the virus. In addition, security guards need to ensure that gatherings within the premises are following health and safety guidelines as well, and that everyone is following social distancing as needed.

Regal Security guards truly are Everyday Superheroes™, who are passionate about being of service to all areas of their community, where the training and support every guard receives enables them to provide a safe and secure place for people to live, and for businesses to thrive, which is the goal of every team member at Regal Security Inc.
