K9 Narcotics Detection


How can narcotic detection dogs help reduce risk, reduce accidents and reduce costs on a job-site?

Narcotic detection dogs are widely regarded as one of the most cost effective and efficient tools used today to detect the presence of illicit narcotics in the workplace. Employers wanting to ensure site safety and employee safety are using Securiguard’s complement of proven, highly-trained dog teams to uncover hidden narcotics in the workplace. No one goes to work thinking they will be in an accident; however, the risk of injury increases exponentially when narcotics make their way onto a job-site.  The use of narcotic detection dogs increases the level of accountability of both employees and managers,which translates into a safer workplace, reduced risk of accidents and ultimately, cost savings from reduced compensation claims due to injuries.
