Key Holding to start Q's


Full Registered User
Hi All..

Wondering if a few of you chaps and ladies can help me out.

I have a few questions on key holding and this is the best place to help:

1) The chap incharge of Key Holding in the company has his KH Docs through but it states he won't recieve a badge for KH and that its a non frontline role.

He is planning to respond to callouts so is this right and if not have the SIA dropped a ball.

2) Can someone who works for the company attend a callout without a KH Badge if they are a Registered DS?

Think that's it for now.

1. Keyholding is a letter only from the SIA... it is designated as a non front licence, so that is quite correct.

2. if you hold a ds licence then this also permits you to undertake the duties of keyholding and security guarding.

Hope this helps

All of the information is on the SIA website, and licence holders are aware (usually) of their permittable activities within the industry.
