Creating a safe space for science

12th March 2020

Amongst our large portfolio of clients, we provide both security and logistics services for one of the country’s leading medical research facilities. We maintain a safe place for cutting-edge science and facilitate efficient logistics that allow life-saving research to take place.

"we actively recruit our security and logistics staff from the surrounding local area"

Working in partnership with the facility, we actively recruit our security and logistics staff from the surrounding local area. Given the nature of the work carried out on-site, we undertake additional comprehensive security checks. For example, our initial recruitment campaign for the site included a rigorous four-stage process.

As we provide both security and logistics services for the facility, our management team is cross-functional, providing highly-skilled oversight of the operation. On the ground, our security guards, front-of-house staff, logistics operatives and traffic marshalls are trained in additional skills owing to the complex nature of the facility’s day to day functions.

 

On a daily basis, clinical waste, chemicals and scientific equipment are frequently moved around the site. Therefore, some of the specialist skills our security and logistics team members are trained in include chemical spillage management, enhanced health and safety and IOSH qualifications.

"As the nature of medical research is not static, neither are our security and logistics teams"

As the nature of medical research is not static, neither are our security and logistics teams. They continually undertake detailed risk assessments to ensure that the safety and security of the site is maintained.

Our operation on site is also driven by technology; we utilise contemporary electronic security systems, with a dedicated Systems Manager continually reviewing and improving on current systems, ensuring that the facility remains a leader of technology and innovation.

"The on-site team is committed to supporting the ground-breaking work"

The on-site team is committed to supporting the ground-breaking work at the facility and is dedicated to creating a safe and secure space for science.
