As a business owner, it’s likely that your company alarm has disturbed you at the most inconvenient of times. Whether it’s three o’clock in the morning or in the middle of a family meal, you have to stop what you’re doing and make your way to your company building. Not only is this inconvenient, but it’s also scary to think of what state your business might be in when you finally get to the scene.

Here at Taybar Security, we’re specialists in keyholding and alarm response services, alleviating some of the worry of your business alarm sounding. We provide a professional, quick, and seamless service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. There is zero predictability when it comes to security alarms, which is why we’re on hand whenever you need us. Whether you’re working in the domestic, commercial, construction, industrial, distribution and warehousing, NHS, university, college, academy, school, council, or government field, we have the alarm response and keyholding services to suit.

What Does Keyholding Mean?

Ultimately, keyholding is the duty of caring for the leys of an organisation or business. Typically speaking, this is carried out by a senior member of staff or a selected employee. This is so that they can open up in the morning and lock up at night; although, this also means that they’re the initial point of contact upon the alarm being triggered.

Understandably, employees don’t often wish to be disturbed with company matters outside of work, which can deter people from wanting to be a keyholder. Therefore, Taybar Security’s keyholding service is ideal, as it alleviates employees of the stresses that being a keyholder entails.

What is a Keyholding Service?

A keyholding service is where all keyholding duties will be performed by an external company, such as the Taybar Security team. We will be responsible for opening up and locking your business premises each morning and evening. Similarly, we will be responsive in the instance that the alarm on your premises is triggered. Ultimately, a keyholding service carries out all the duties of your standard keyholder so that the worries and anxiety are taken out of the business owner’s hands.

Why Use a Keyholding Service?

When using a UK keyholding service such as Taybar Security, you can be sure that any alarm activation will be attended to promptly by an experienced individual. Not only does this put business owners and managers at ease about the safety and security of their company, but it also boasts convenience. This is because any keyholders within the business won’t need to stop in their tracks to attend to a triggered alarm.

Not only is this more convenient for senior members of staff, but it also ensures their safety and wellbeing. When dealing with a triggered alarm, you don’t know what’s lying on the other side. For all you know, you could arrive at the premises only to be greeted by a violent individual. However, Taybar Security is trained in dealing with such issues, meaning that any potential danger is minimised. As a business owner, you don’t want to put yourself or other employees at risk. Instead, allow us to take the reigns to ensure the wellbeing of you and your staff.

Additionally, staff can run into trouble some mornings. For example, traffic could inhibit employees from arriving on time to open the premises. However, Taybar Security will allow for issues such as these, meaning that the business premises will be unlocked and ready for employees to start their day.

Furthermore, these quicker response times will result in fewer losses and less damage if your company is faced with criminal activity. As a result, utilising Taybar Security will save your company’s finances, despite the service costs. This is because you won’t have to pay for expensive repairs or replacements to the same extent as you would in the absence of a keyholding service.

What Can You Expect from Taybar Security?

In order to get you started, our team will conduct a site visit to establish procedures and other processes. We will perform a risk assessment to ensure that your company is secure, and your employees are safe. Upon establishing these ground rules, our security personnel will be briefed on their role to guarantee that all procedures, processes, and safeguarding is adhered to.

A large concern for many companies is how keys are stored, which is why we promise to store your keys in an industry-regulated sealed pouch. In order to add to this security, we install security signage throughout the property to deter criminal activity. However, if your alarm is triggered, we will conduct a sweep of your premises both externally and internally. If an intrusion has occurred, our officers will contact emergency services and secure the premises. Following this, reports will be available post-alarm activation by 11am the next working day.
