Eagle Trust Policy
Security companies must protect their clients and their employees along with their own business interests. A security guard on patrol can be a target to those trying to do illegal activities. This means security guards are often in harm’s way.
Eagle Trust is committed to carrying out its business and affairs in a socially responsible, sustainable and meaningful way, taking into account ethics, the environment and needs of society at large.

As a security guard you have a certain amount of professional liability. Your occupation is inherently riskier than most, since you are tasked with protecting property, a business, or people from harm. You may be static or mobile, serving as a bodyguard, or simply being a presence in a location just in case of emergency.
Whether you are purchasing your own insurance or are under an employer’s policy, as a security guard, you should make sure you are covered for various risks faced on the job. Consider insurance policies that include the following components:

Our staff responsible for recruiting and selecting their area must be aware that both employees and non-employees can bring claims under the Sex Discrimination Act, the Race Relations Act or the Disability Discrimination Act if they feel they have been unfairly treated during a selection process.
Appropriate disciplinary action, including summary dismissal for serious offenses, will be taken against any employee who violates Eagle Trust equal opportunities policy. Any employee who feels that he or she has been treated unfairly or feels that he or she has suffered harassment should raise their grievance through the appropriate channels.
Our directors, managers, and supervisors are responsible for eliminating and preventing discrimination, harassment, intimidation or victimization. Failure to do so will be treated as a failure to fulfill one of the responsibilities of their position.
Eagle Trust recognizes that regular monitoring is essential to the effectiveness of this policy and, therefore, periodic checks will be made to ensure that discrimination does not arise. We intend, through our Equal Opportunities Policy, to avoid unfair treatment, to fairly reward the skills, experience, and contribution of all staff and, therefore, increase competitiveness and enhance the reputation of our Company.
