How to Meet Employee Attendance Requirements for SIA Approved Contractor Scheme

According to the SIA Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS), security companies must follow effective policies to ensure the attendance of their security staff on the client site. SIA-approved contractors must have the required capabilities and resources to monitor service delivery in a consistent manner.

Besides, providers of keyholding services who attend customer sites in response to an incident should demonstrate that they can timely respond to emergencies. Customer sites include all venues of door supervision, collection points of the CVIT sector, and all parking areas.


Moreover, an SIA-approved contractor should:

Have clear policies to verify that their staff is present on the client site 

Ensure its lone workers’ safety by tracking their location

Maintain its staff’s onsite presence through attendance records 

Meet customers’ requirements 

Importance of Verifying Staff’s Onsite Presence

Security companies operate in diverse work environments and service areas. Most security guards perform their duties on client sites as door supervisors, manned security guards, CCTV & instant alarm responders, event security specialists, and much more. 

However, security supervisors can’t verify their staff’s presence by physically visiting the client site. They have to rely on phone calls only to make sure that security officers have reached the site and have started working. Moreover, if you have a huge team comprising several security guards performing their duties at different sites, you can’t call each member individually. 

So, how security companies can verify their staff’s onsite attendance and track their locations?
