Manned Security Service Terms & Conditions (Sub-Contractors Own Insurance)
These Manned Guarding Security Service Terms and Conditions are designed
for use by individuals and business providing manned security services to a
range of clients. This document is suitable for use with security guarding
services including, but not necessarily limited to, building security and
Designed as a precursor to a formal contract, this document sets out a
standard framework covering all of the essential legal matters required for
the contract. The exact nature of the services to be provided should be
detailed in full in the final contract.
A central provision in this document includes a detailed set of formalities
governing the provision of the services. These formalities include the
all-important requirement that security guards be licenced by the Security
Industry Authority (“SIA”). Of particular importance under this section is
a provision requiring security guards to comply with certain of the
client’s company policies. It is important to note that whilst many such
policies will be both relevant and important to the security guards (as

applicable only to the client’s employees. The relevant policies should be
set out in the final contract, not in the terms and conditions.

The default position for insurance under this document is that it should
not cover sub-contractors, thus requiring sub-contractors to take out their
own insurance. An alternative version of this document is available which
provides for the service provider’s own insurance policy to cover
sub-contractors. Insurance taken out by sub-contractors should provide the
same level of cover as the insurance taken out by the main contractor.
Great care should be taken when selecting the appropriate document and you
should always ensure that you fully understand the terms and conditions of
For service providers using sub-contractors, a Security Sub-Contractor
Agreement is also available for use when “hiring” the sub-contractors.
A counterpart agreement is also available for use when entering into final
