In today’s increasingly complex social landscape, individuals and businesses often turn to security services contracts to ensure their personal safety and protect their assets. The security services contract is a crucial element that must be considered when hiring security services.
Contract is the agreement between parties that outlines the establishment, modification, or termination of civil rights and obligations (as specified in Article 385 of the Civil Code 2015). Contract can take different forms, such as a service contract, sale and purchase of property, exchange of property, gift of property, loan of property, partnership or delegation contract, or subcontracting contract.
What is security services contract?
The security services contract essentially refers to the contract for the provision of security services. It is a document utilized by individuals, groups of individuals, and organizations to record the agreement regarding the work, rights, and obligations of the parties involved. The agreement between the related parties is based on the regulations of the law.
Articles and clauses in the security services contract
A security services company will includes the articles and clauses which are basically same with the other types of contract. It may include as follow:
- Company/Organization/Individual name and relevant information
- Terminologies (if any)
- Agreement on the duties of security guards and the location to be.protected
- Number, standards and working hours of security guards
- Price and payment method
- Service performance method
- Rights and duties of both parties
- Methods of dispute and litigation resolution
- Duration and Validity of the Contract
- Mutual articles
However, the security services contract will have some noteworthy provisions. These provisions should be.made clear to both customers using the security services and the company providing them. Some of these provisions include:
Define the exact location and site to be protected
Firstly, before signing a security services contract, both parties need to determine the location that needs to be protected, specifically the address. The protected area should be clearly.defined. This includes which areas will be.guarded and the tasks that the security personnel will perform. This will avoid any issues that may arise in the event of an incident. Although the contract may not explicitly state that the protection extends to area A, the client may still request that the security company take responsibility for it.
The clearer and more detailed a security services contract, the easier it will be to resolve any disputes or litigation that may arise in the future. However, some customers may complain that the contract has too many provisions or is troublesome. In such cases, it is important to have a different perspective. All provisions in the security services contract need to be clearly.stipulated to avoid any confusion or misunderstandings.
Job requirements and standards of security guards
One of the important provisions of a security services contract is to define the tasks that the security personnel are required to perform or prohibited from performing. The work of security personnel will mostly be related to security operations. However, some objectives may require security personnel to perform other tasks. Even in such cases, both parties must agree and come to a consensus when it comes to carrying out additional tasks that are not.strictly related to security operations.
Compensation and Dispute Resolution Terms
This is perhaps the provision that customers are most concerned about. The reason why customers want to hire professional security services is to feel safe. And when a loss occurs, the security service provider will provide compensation to the customer. However, this is also the provision that the two parties find difficult to agree on and come to a consensus.
When an incident occurs, both parties will require certain conditions to be.met to resolve the matter. For the security service provider, they will need the Investigation Report from the investigating agency. In addition, there will be a need for supporting documents proving the value of the assets. The evidence of the fault will belong to the security personnel. From there, a basis is established to resolve the matter.
However, on the customer’s side, they will demand that the matter be.resolved quickly. They believe that when an incident occurs, all losses are the responsibility of the security personnel. However, as mentioned above, customers need to understand that the security services contract is not an insurance contract. Therefore, the security company has the right to refuse compensation if it does not meet the conditions set out in the contract.
