TOOLBOX TALK 02 - WEARING ID
One of the main duties of the Security Industry Authority (SIA) is the compulsory licensing of individuals working in specific sectors of the private security industry.
Once granted a licence by the SIA, the holder must wear the badge so that it can be seen by members of the public. This is a mandatory licence condition and attracts serious consequences for the licence holder if not respected: SIA can issue the person with a written warning, which can be taken into account in future licensing, can revoke or suspend the existing licence or can even prosecute the person for contravening licence conditions (criminal offence under Section 9 of the Private Security Industry Act 2001). The licence must be worn for all licensable activities (including but not limited to Door supervision, Security guarding, patrols).
Security Officers also have to wear their employee ID whenever working for CDX Security, not doing so is a breach of your contract and codes of conduct with CDX Security. The CDX lanyard and ID card are seen as important parts of your uniform and you must keep standards high at all times?
