Their training for other jobs is also not there or poor.Only job which they find is become a guard.
Housing societies hire guards for duty but look for cheapest options and still want best security.
The whole system is poorly run.
We had guards who have done murders in housing societies.
Maharastra has a Guard Board which regulates security guards.
The set up is run but not too well.
Employers therefore take chances knowing supply of guards is huge and they can easily replacement.
Asking guards to do 12 hrs duty is very common and quite often without OT.
But as HR we need to follow laws and also look after welfare of guards.
Tired guards will be no security at all.
If you find need to have 12 hrs guards, it means that there is need for an additional guard.
Be firm with management that laws should not be violated and security should not be compromised for few thousands of rupees.

I agree with all learned senior personnel's views here.
Beyond security guards being exploited like this,some manufacturing industries also engage and extract the workers for 12 hours duty.
They are biggies and manage the show with concerned authorities.
HR should be firm in discussing with the Managements of such organizations to curb it.
