RS & Associates Loss Control Services is a 100% Black-owned company formed in 2006. RSA operates independently and has since established itself in its own right as a company that will commit itself to its client in all ways and deliver the best possible service.
Although still young, RSA has achieved several successes in obtaining contracts.
Our market share in the Western Cape is currently small, but our growth has been steady and calculated.
We are growing quickly and have established branches in Eersteriver and Calvinia in the Northern Cape; we are very selective in choosing our clients as we feel it would eventually detract from the service we wish to offer clients.
Our aim is: To ensure that your guarding service is what it is represented to be in the line of efficiency, quality and professionalism. That you receive value for the considerable amount of money being spent monthly on your security arrangements.
RECRUITMENTS AND TRAINING Our success depends on recruiting the right person for the job. It is therefore imperative that each officer be matched to the client’s requirements and expectations. Our clients are also given the opportunity of interviewing our personnel, prior to employment on their premises. To provide a security service that is well structured in terms of expertise, resources and manpower, training is essential to get the best out of each and every officer in the field.
All security officers are, as condition of employment, fully conversant and must abide by the regulations as set out by the Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority.
Accordingly, ALL security officers posted at your site will have the following minimum standards: Have no criminal records (schedule one offence)
Have attained a minimum Standard 8 (Grade 10)

CLIENT LIAISON AND REPORTS
Monthly management meetings are held with our clients to ensure continuous efficiency and client satisfaction. On the occurrence of any incident concerning staff or any burglaries, shootings, etc.; an immediate report and investigation will be done and discussed with the client.
SITE SURVEYS AND SUPERVISION Site surveys are of utmost importance to pinpoint problem areas and to then make recommendations on how to correct these problems. Inspections together with any observations are recorded in an Occurrence Book (OB), which is available for the client’s perusal.

GUARDING: AN OVERVIEW
In a modern-day society where crime is ever on the increase and Police resources are stretched to the limits, the Police Service in general cannot afford the time (in their limited budgets) to properly investigate crimes committed in and around the workplace or to regularly patrol the property of individuals or Companies. With the exception of very serious cases, internal crime within a Company is very often not regarded as a Police matter and is left with the Company’s management to sort out and rectify. As management is expected to be responsible for securing and protecting its own premises, this responsibility could be delegated to the Security Company/Officer in many areas which could save the Company thousands in both the short and long term. Below is a non-exhaustive list of scenarios where the deployment of Security Officers could alleviate and prevent crime occurring within the workplace: Serious internal pilferage cannot only eat away a Company’s profit by making it less competitive in the market place; it could also cause late deliveries and loss of orders. A serious fire, whether started deliberately or by accident, could completely finish a Company. Acts of vandalism can also have a devastating effect on business. In an ever-competitive world industrial espionage is a means open to for unscrupulous competitors to gain insight into a Company’s affairs. Security Officers can therefore assist Client Management in both the prevention of crime and the detection of offenders committing those crimes.
ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF TODAY’S SECURITY OFFICER
The roles and responsibilities of today’s Security Officer have increased in recent years, Companies have become much more cost conscious and therefore more aware of their requirements to prevent losses/wastage. Many companies realize this and employ Security Officers in order to prevent and detect losses by theft, prevent water damage, fire damage, and vandalism. They can prevent wastage and control access, i.e. visitors, contractors, workforce, etc., into the Client’s premises. The Security Officer therefore has become an integral part of the management of a site. They are in a position of both authority and responsibility. The days of the night watchman are now gone, modern day Security Officers are people who know and understand their responsibilities and diligently apply their sense of sight, hearing and suspicion in order to ensure that property and people are adequately protected. The Security Officer today can play an important determining role in the successful operations of any business, corporate or manufacturing, retail or financial. No matter what the industry or assignment, the Security Officers, trough their positive training and their expertise are capable of adapting themselves to varying security related duties, from coordinating a busy reception area to manning and monitoring a distribution company’s gatehouse or CCTV system. Our Security Officers are trained to do just that, no matter the task, no matter what the Client’s business, you can rely on RS & Associates Loss Control Services to carry out requirements in a professional manner.
