Another reason for companies to employ a trained and experienced keyholding service is the fact that more and more insurance companies are advocating the use of professional keyholder services to remove risks from personnel and as a stop-loss in emergencies.
Traditionally, some organisations have delegated the task of key holding to one of their colleagues, but this raises serious issues.
- Is reasonable to ask employees to respond to alarm activations late at night or at the weekend?
- Is acting as a key holder part of their contract?
- Have they been trained to a level which will allow them to safely and efficiently deal with the alarm problem?
- Have you shown, as an employer, that everything has been done to protect your employee in these circumstances?
