6 PWM is a Customer Service Provider
PWM is first and foremost a customer service company whose product is security. You, as an employee, are seen to be a representative of PWM at all times to our clients. As a result, your best efforts will have a positive effect upon your own reputation and that of PWM. On the other hand, any shortcomings will have a negative effect on your reputation and that of PWM. Remember that negative interactions linger in the customer’s mind much longer than positive experiences. It’s not fair but it is reality!

7 Customer Service Our clients deserve a security guard: Who
a) reports to work on time, b) is in a full and well maintained uniform, c) acts professionally at all times.

8 What is a Security Guard at PWM expected to do?
The Guard who accepts shifts will be expected to fulfill those shifts to the best of their ability at all times.  If a guard is going to be absent from a scheduled shift the guard must inform the office not later than six hours prior to the commencement of the shift. Guards failing to do so will be considered a no show and will be subject to discipline as laid out in the employee handbook.  A guard will be punctual. If a guard is going to be late they must call the Supervisor as soon as possible to advise them of their tardiness and their approximate arrival time.

9 What is a Security Guard at PWM expected to do?
The guard will wear the complete PWM uniform while working. If travelling to or from work in uniform on public transit, a guard will always wear the complete uniform.  The guard will always be familiar with the Post Orders for the site to which they are assigned and will follow them at all times. The guard will always be safety conscious. They will report any unsafe act or condition to the Supervisor on duty.  They will report any workplace injury promptly to the Mobile and complete any required WCB forms as may be required within 24 hours.

10 What is a Security Guard at PWM expected to do?
The guard will always check in and out from the work site by radioing the Mobile Supervisor on duty.  For those working alone they will ensure hourly check-ins with the Mobile Supervisor. Where required, as determined by PWM, the guard will wear the required Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) equipment at all times.  The guard will always complete a full and complete Security Report for all shifts worked. They will submit such reports along with their time sheet no later than 15:30 on a Monday, or Tuesday before 15:30 if Monday is a holiday, prior to a Friday pay day. The guard will complete a separate time sheet for each pay period.

11 What is a Security Guard at PWM expected to do?
The guard will remember that they represent PWM and the client while they are working so they will always conduct themselves in a calm, professional manner. The guard will always comply with all policies contained in the Security Guard Policy Manual.

36 PWM Discipline Protecting our Guards, Administration and our Clients

37 Discipline is an important part of PWM integrity.
Having a disciplinary policy protects all involved and keeps a measure of respect to our Guards, Management and Clients. It protects guards from being let go for a minor infraction of company rules, and gives them a second chance with help and guidance. It protects our administration from being sued by Employees and the Labour Board for unfair dismissal.

38 The PWM Disciplinary Policy is as follows:
It lets our clients know that we are a caring, “Fair Business” by taking the appropriate actions when problems occur on the job site. Giving them a sense of protection and comfort. The PWM Disciplinary Policy is as follows: Oral Reprimand or verbal warning For minor infractions an oral reprimand may be sufficient. A second oral reprimand may be given if the supervisor feels that the first reprimand has been misunderstood or that progress has taken place albeit not to a sufficient level. Oral reprimands must be recorded by the supervisor as to nature, time and response. Certain circumstances may be so severe it requires disciplinary action to proceed directly to a written reprimand.

39 Written Reprimand or written warning
Written reprimands are reserved for failing to respond to an oral reprimand, and for more serious matters. These documents must be discussed with the employee and then placed in the employee’s personnel file. Suspension A suspension may be considered if there is: a serious matter where immediate termination is not considered or; where an employee is either under investigation or has been charged with a Criminal Offence, whether on or off duty, where it might interfere with their ability to perform their duties. Length of suspension is to be determined by senior management. The employee doesn’t lose their job but are not paid during this time.

40 Resignation or Termination
Any employee who wishes to tender a resignation must provide advance notice in accordance with the following guidelines: 0-365 days of service 1 week 1 year to 2 years of service 1 week 2 years to five years of service 2 weeks 5 years + of service 3 weeks Upon resignation or termination, the employee MUST return all uniform items and all other Company property in your possession within 5 business days.

41 Grounds for immediate dismissal
Theft Fraud Behaviour detrimental to the business Fighting or acting violent in the workplace Insubordination Sleeping on the job Impersonating a Police Officer Theft of Communications e.g. unpaid personal long distance phone calls False Statement on Application form Conviction of a crime under the Criminal Code of Canada Wilful violation of safety rules Possession of a weapon on Company or Client property Wilfully damage property Serious unsafe acts

97 Work Place Harassment & Violence
The harassment policy will form a part of the employee file and will be signed off at the time of hire. The following is PWM Loss Prevention Inc. Harassment Policy. It is policy that all workers have a right to work in an environment free of discrimination including freedom of harassment. Workplace harassment, both on and off site, which may create an intimidating, offensive or hostile work environment, whether in the form of physical or verbal harassment, and regardless of whether by supervisory or non supervisory staff is prohibited and will not be tolerated. 

98 Harassment includes sexual harassment, such as repeated offensive or unwelcome sexual flirtations, advances, propositions; continual or repeated verbal abuse of a sexual nature; sexually explicit or graphic verbal commentaries about an individual’s body; sexually degrading language used to describe an individual; and the display in the workplace of sexually suggestive objects or pictures; the electronic transmitting on company or client equipment of any sexually suggestive objects or pictures. In addition, no worker shall threaten or insinuate, either explicitly or implicitly, that a worker’s or applicant’s submission to or rejection of sexual advances will in any way influence any personal decision regarding the worker’s or applicant’s employment, wages, advancement, job assignment, or any other condition of employment or career development. Any such conduct is prohibited.

99 It is this Company’s policy to promptly investigate all good-faith claims of harassment, to maintain confidentiality to the extent possible in light of the personal nature of these matters and the important privacy interests of all concerned, and to take appropriate remedial action when an investigation confirms harassment has occurred. This policy also prohibits coercion, intimidation, interference or retaliation in any form against any employee who, in good faith, brings harassment charges or who assists in the investigation of such charges. All workers are responsible for helping to assure that harassment is prevented. Any worker who believes that he or she has witnessed harassment or is being harassed should immediately notify his or her supervisor. Harassment in work situations by any worker will result in disciplinary action up to and including dismissal.

100 WCB (Workers Compensation Board)
This board was set up to offer medical and financial assistance to injured workers. The Company pays premiums to the WCB in order that all Company employees are protected under this Act. WCB is set up for the workers.

101 It is, therefore, mandatory that all injuries occurring while on duty are reported immediately to the supervisor who will come to site and do a report. If there is a time loss injury involved you must call the supervisor and the Health and Safety Manager will attend the scene to start the investigation and paper work. You must report to the office for all follow up paperwork within 24 hours of the injury. The Company has only 72 hours to submit the proper paper work.

102 The “Worker’s Report” must be completed promptly for submission to WCB.
Failure to report an injury while at work to the Company may result in disciplinary action. It could also impede the WCB claim. Under the OH & S Code, Part 11 section 182: “If a worker has an injury on the job site the worker must report the injury to the employer immediately.”
