Abstract
Security guards are an integral part of the service industry and play a vital role in safeguarding the interests of their employers and the general public. It is an occupation predominantly having many senior citizens aged 60 and above as employees. The work of security guards is often overlooked and the challenges they face are not always adequately documented. This study is intended to understand the challenges related to their wages, working hours, health aspect, job requirements etc. The chosen methodology for the current study was semi-structured interviews with security guards working in different establishments in the area of Teynampet, Chennai. The research was able to uncover the main challenges faced by security guards, especially with regard to financial inadequacy, poor working conditions, disregard for job description and the role of security agencies in the occupation. The study also revealed the several socioeconomic factors behind opting for the job of a security guard. The study has identified the need for stronger legal and social protections for security guards to ensure that their rights and interests are safeguarded from exploitation by the agencies. The findings have suggested that employers and policymakers take steps to address the challenges faced by security guards, including improving their working conditions and providing better training and support.
