IMPORTANCE OF TEAMWORK FOR SECURITY GUARDS/OFFICERS
Many people gather together during an event in multiple places, which includes tents, rooms and also fenced-in areas. Because events require a lot of space and it makes sense to have a security team in control. Therefore it is reasonable to have the team working together in order to perform well. We could break down the word “TEAM” which means “together everyone achieved more”. This shows there’s no “I” in teamwork everyone has to work together to achieve a common goal.
Successful businesses and organisations require smart teams of officers to make sure events run smoothly. This is why security guards need to communicate constantly with each other so they are aware of their positions or any changes to their task. Doing this will ensure all positions are covered without the fear of leaving out crucial points.
Teamwork is important during any events in order to maximise a safe environment. Use of radios, phones and other communication devices come in handy especially when officers are spread out over the site. Also, the presence of a supervisor makes a huge difference as he or she is in charge of making sure everyone is rightfully positioned and focused on their duties.
Officers need to be on the same page so everyone knows who they are working with, and what location to be at a certain time and what everyone’s job is.
Sometimes the job requires security officers to protect people and properties on client’s ground. There’s a lot that can be said on how important teamwork is in Security industry as it is not a one mans job to keep the entire event safe. So, in a nutshell, great teamwork creates a better and safer environment.
