Why Does Hiring a Licensed and Insured Security Company Matter?

When hiring Security contractors for your business, your homeowner’s association, or your event, one of the most important things you can do is make sure you are hiring a licensed and insured Security contractor. 

Why is this so important? Well, picture this, you hire a painting company to paint the exterior of your building or home. They send two painters to complete the job, and one of their employees falls off a ladder during the job. If the contractor is not insured, you could be held financially responsible for the injury since it occurred on your property. However, if the company has insurance the company will have the primary financial responsibility for the injury.

In the case of hiring a security guard company, it is crucial that the one you hire for your site has not only proper state licensing for themselves, and their guards, but is also able to show proof of insurance. Forms of insurance to notate include workman’s comp, auto liability, and general liability insurance. When contracting a private security guard company, ask that they add you to these policies as an “additionally insured”. 

At Eastern Security, we know how important it is to ensure the protection of our employees and our clients. That’s why we are fully licensed and insured. We only hire fully licensed security guards to ensure our staff is entirely capable of handling your site’s specific needs, and emergency situations that may arise.
