    Both, at my site.

      As I think it should be at all sites but my client doesn't seem to agree.

        Both at my hotels too. But then again we're In-House. i believe that security working with the public shoud be first responders for all emergencies. Some don't agree. Right Nathan?

          well when ever i right up safety hazards Trips, Slips and Potential fall hazards the client tells me he isn't going to fix it right now he will do it when he is ready I should worry about security, and that if i don't like it i can leave. I just told my supervisor I would let him know about my concerns instead of righting the IR

            safety and security. Had that problem at my site...well up until I became site supervisor and I got to handle the clien politics. All those that didn't want to corect safety issues when they were brought up have a new attitude. After speaking with their dept. heads and the association manager...well they step up quick when safety issues are mentioned.

                      Security Consultant, a greater truth has never been written.
                      Some supervisors and/or clients will insist you did not bring a certain matter to their conscience level of understanding. I got around this by maintaining an active notebook and having anyone involved not only read the report submitted but to initial the entries in my notebook.

                        hey

                        luckily for me the property I work is pretty sweet. The company that manages the property manages several other sets of condo properties up and down the beach, however for the most part each property has a different owners association. And the owners association on the property that I work are pretty fe up with management companies "GOD COMPLEX" as one of the owners stated. So after their last meeting and then after the problems I was having things turned out much better.

                          My site is at jeopardy right now. I think the only reason we still have it is because the staff likes 3 of our officers. we have a lot of s**tbags in the Co. that like to f*** it up for those of us who actually care.
