Ontario Security Guard License Practice Test

Question: 1 / 30

What patterns should be avoided by Security Guards?

Regularly scheduled rotating shifts

Knowing where you are at all times and how to summon help

Regular people and their activities on the site

Completing patrols routinely at the same time each day

Regularly scheduled rotating shifts may provide better coverage of a security site and prevent fatigue, while knowing one's location and how to call for help is an essential part of being a competent security guard. Regular people and their activities are also important to monitor as security guards must maintain a safe and secure environment for all individuals on the site. Completing patrols routinely at the same time each day creates a predictable pattern and makes it easier for potential threats to exploit any vulnerabilities in the security system. Therefore, it is important for security guards to vary their patrol schedules to prevent predictability and maintain a strong security presence.
