Having a security guard on the property can amplify safety measures and possibly prevent accidents from happening. However if accidents do happen and the security guard on duty did not do their job to prevent the accident, this might place greater liability on the property owner. When a security guard is on site, their presence can help deter people from either trespassing and getting hurt in the process or partaking behavior that could result in an accident. Sometimes though, security guards neglect taking action or choose to not interfere in a situation to avoid being held liable themselves in the case of an accident or injury. In this situation, they avoid liability themself for causing further harm, but the liability goes to the property owner who hired them. Other times, a security guard might involve themself and use an unwarranted amount of force causing further injuries to a guest. If you do decide to hire a security guard to provide extra safety measures for the guests on your property, you must hire a professionally trained security guard who is vigilant, knows how to enact safety measures, and de-escalate situations to prevent further accidents from happening. Having a security guard can still be a great way to prevent security negligence claims from happening on your property.
