Dear Licence Holder

The purpose of the guidance is to provide guidance to PSA licensed contractors and their employees as to what constitutes an essential service where workers cannot work from home and have no option but to travel to work.

The Government has published details of essential service providers under the new public health guidelines. Essential services includes security activities to assist in the delivery of essential services and the securing of premises closed to the public.

The PSA considers the following services as coming within the scope of essential services.

  1. Cash-in Transit

  2. Security Guarding

  3. Alarm/CCTV Monitoring

  4. Electronic Security, Installers (Access Control, CCTV and Intruder Alarm) installing or repairing access control systems, CCTV systems and intruder alarms at premises providing essential services or premises closed to the public. Installers may also respond to emergency call outs. All other installation and regular maintenance/service work should cease. Retail premises should be closed. If emergency services need to be provided at the licence holders premises this should be done by appointment. The premises should remain closed to the public.

  5. Locksmiths, installing or repairing locks at premises providing essential services or premises closed to the public. Locksmiths may also respond to emergency call outs. All other installation and regular maintenance/service work should cease. Retail premises should be closed. If emergency services need to be provided at the licence holders premises this should be done by appointment. The premises should remain closed to the public.

  6. Private Investigators should only provide services that support essential services. These services should only be conducted from their offices. No fieldwork should be undertaken.

Employers should advise their employees that they should at all times when travelling to and from work bring work identification or a letter from their employer indicating that they are an essential employee, as well as one other form of identification this can include a PSA licence card where one has issued.

You should continue to follow the latest public health guidance at all times.

Further information will be issued if there is any changes to this guidance.

We will not respond to individual requests for clarification. If further clarification is required this will be done by another guidance notice to all licence holders.
