Security agencies to display service grading at worksites

Security firms in Singapore will be required to display their service grading at individual worksites, such as condominiums and shopping centres, by the end of this year.

The move is to help clients better evaluate their options when hiring a security agency and to encourage agencies to improve their employment standards in the annual grading exercise.

Deputy secretary-general for NTUC, Heng Chee How, announced this at the private security industry's National Day observance ceremony on Thursday.

Security agencies are rated by the Security Industry Regulatory Department, which is under the Singapore Police Force.

Some 250 firms were rated last year, and 54 were graded D for unsatisfactory service.

Another 19 firms were exempted from the exercise.

Under new guidelines released this year, the agencies are rated on operations, training and support.

There are some 50,000 security officers in Singapore.
