A simple folded card that fits in your wallet to make professional daily security reports, accident and incident reports easy.
The problem with creating security and incident reports is being able to ensure all the details are properly recorded. Too little detail and the report is useless. Too much detail and the report becomes hard to read. The report you complete reflects your level of professional ability and may be used in legal proceedings, to demonstrate health & safety compliance and to justify the security services you provide.
A major issue is that every situation you may report on, will be different, requiring a different approach.
GuardCards™ are a small security report writing guide that can easily fit in a wallet, pocket or purse.
GuardCards™ provide a review of basic security report writing guidelines along with fill in the blanks report writing scripts suitable for daily security reports or preliminary special incident and accident reports.
GuardCards™ can be used in completing hard copy traditional pen and paper report forms as well as online report forms.
GuardCards™ were created and developed by Dr. Robert Ing, a Canadian Forensic Scientist, author and lecturer with over 30 years experience in the public and private safety and security industry. Originally developed as a training aid, GuardCards™ have proven to be valuable to frontline security guards.
