To keep offices, establishments or any commercial areas protected, the corporate security guards will need to follow many protocols. Today, we will take a look at some of these protocols because discussing all of them in a single article is not possible. Moreover, if you are based in Brisbane, Gold Coast or Ipswich and are planning to hire corporate security guards, make sure that they are following these protocols as well.

So, without further ado let’s delve into these protocols.


The professionals employed in a company that provides corporate security guard for hire in Brisbane will have to monitor the different areas in a commercial building and when doing so they will need to follow these guidelines.

  • Work with the CCTV camera operators to diagnose the possible threats or safety breaches in the building and take the necessary actions if and when required.
  • Routinely check all the cameras on the premises with the CCTV operators to make sure that the devices are working properly.
  • Storing and managing the recorded footage and producing them to the authorities when needed.

Scanning the Guests

All professional corporate security guards will need to scan the guests during their entry to the building for business purposes or when attending events. So, they will need to do the following.

  • When it comes to employees, the security guards will verify their identity cards. 
  • When it comes to guests, the security professionals will check for invitation cards during events if the event is invitation only.
  • If they find anything suspicious, they will take the necessary actions such as barring the guests from entry to the event or informing the building authorities.


Companies providing the corporate security guard for hire in Gold Coast have made certain rules that the security professionals will have to follow. These include

  • Timely patrolling of the different areas in the commercial building.
  • Making quick decisions if and when a threat is detected during routine patrolling.
  • Thorough patrolling to be done and the reports of the rounds will need to be prepared accordingly.

Handling Emergencies

Corporate security guards are also experts at handling different types of emergencies. So, if and when faced with a situation they will

  • Immediately report to the building authorities and local authorities depending on the severity of the situation.
  • Guide the dwellers safely out of the building or might ask them to stay indoors depending on the emergency type.
  • Make quick decisions and organise the resources for keeping the dwellers safe if and when faced with emergencies.
