A Message from the President Team, June is National Safety Month, which gives us the opportunity to highlight the importance of employee safety. While we value the hard work of our employees, their physical and mental well-being is of even greater importance. This yearâ€™s Safety Starts with Me campaign enabled our local teams to promote safety across the region, and this success has encouraged us to continue reaching as many individuals as possible. To help employees engage in safety conversations, conversation starters and questions are now included in the weekly Safety Moment. Additionally, the Safety Matters publication focuses on ways that employees can start conversations surrounding safety issues, as well as questions they may ask themselves or others. Technology has also helped us to start the spread of safety conversations. SecureTrax now offers security officers with access to the weekly Safety Moment, and, starting in August, officers will hear a new safety message each time they call labor scheduling. There are also numerous training paths available via the North America Training Institute and G4Su (www. MyG4STraining.com) to help employees improve their worksite safety. Finally, this year the health and safety team will make available a new mobile app for the region that will allow employees to access safety communications, safety policies, access to the employee assistance program information, our values, job aid documentation, and the employee concerns hotline. The app will also enable them to report any unsafe conditions. Working safely and starting safety conversations go hand-inhand. Promoting a dialogue mitigates safety risks and can help prevent an incident that could potentially harm a G4S employee or someone else. Thank you for all you do, and for your commitment to working safely. Sincerely,
Drew Levine President, G4S Secure Solutions (USA)

G4S All Stars Team Recognized For Exceptional Service ALABAMA — As the adage goes, teamwork makes the dream work. That teamwork certainly paid off for G4S employees in Alabama when they were recognized for exceptional performance by a local client in the spring. In order to receive the award, the team had to meet several eligibility standards, from hours of service, to training and meetings. The team completed at least 10,000 hours of service at the site and had no recordable incidents. The team also helped the client meet important metrics, such as training, near-miss reporting, participating in site contractor meetings and participating in Improve Awareness Programs. Clockwise from top left: Lt. Charles Hill, USO Patricia Simmons, USO Jasmine Johns, Captain Latonya Williams, USO Cynthia Glover, USO Visceglia Pledger; USO Nancy Moore; USO Rosa Patterson; USO Patricia Simmons, USO Cherly Pearson, USO LaKeisha Reeves, USO Patricia Robinson
Congratulations to the entire team for their hard work and dedication on-site to provide exceptional security.
Alyssa Kress and Joe Esposito Prevent Potential Security Incident CONNECTICUT — G4S Regulated Security Solutions (RSS) recognized Alyssa Kress and Joe Esposito as their Employee Spotlight of the Month and Leadership Spotlight of the month, respectively. The duo successfully prevented an individual from entering a Protected Area with prohibited items. The individual had alcohol and unauthorized prescription medication in their bag, and when Alyssa saw the items she immediately took control of the bag and notified Joe. The individual was escorted off the premises without incident.
L to R: G4S RSS Officer Alyssa Kress; G4S RSS Supervisor Joe Esposito
Great work by Alyssa and Joe for their professionalism and teamwork to ensure prohibited items didn’t enter the client facility and for eliminating the potential for a safety concern.
Juan Ramos Helps Client Set Up Security Operations CALIFORNIA — Following a natural disaster, a G4S client needed to set up base operations and needed a security team to protect the facility. Juan Ramos was put in charge of the security operation, which began with just four security officers but ballooned to 130. Juan seamlessly managed security officers, subcontractors, client expectations and the scheduling for more than 100 security officers. It was critical to have Juan’s efforts and skills in managing the operation. Juan was later recognized by the client for his work and was promoted within G4S as well. Juan Ramos
Congratulations and great work, Juan!
G4S Payroll Daily Pay
In 2018, G4S was proud to launch Daily Pay, a program that allows you to access a portion of your paycheck before your regularly scheduled payday. How does it work? As you work throughout the week, you build up an available balance based on hours worked.Then, you can transfer money from your available balance as you need it.With the tap of a button, you can request money to be instantly deposited into the bank account or prepaid card of your choice.You control how much and when you get paid and can use the service as often or as little as you need to. Depending on how quickly you want the money to transfer, there is a fee starting at $1.25. When your scheduled payday arrives, you will receive your full paycheck, minus whatever you previously transferred early from your available balance. DailyPay is optional, so if you donâ€™t want to use it, you will continue to receive your pay as usual with no changes. Daily Pay is available to all employees. Daily Pay may be cancelled at any time. Please be aware that after you cancel Daily Pay, one more check will go through Daily Pay to make sure all funds are settled. After that, checks will no longer go through Daily Pay. To learn more about how DailyPay works, visit www.DailyPay.com. If you have any questions, contact DailyPay support at 888.906.9882, or email email@example.com. Please do not share your Daily Pay link with anyone.
If you have any additional questions, visit the G4S Benefits Service Center 24/7 at www.G4S.BenefitsNow.com, or contact your local G4S area office.
G4S Safety Moments
June Safety Moments Hazard Awareness
Every day of our lives we face safety concerns, some obvious and others more covert. Threats can take on various forms such as chemical, physical, biological and ergonomic. Whether we actively notice these hazards or they passively slip by us, it is important to consciously educate ourselves on the various safety concerns around us.You are the expert on your routines, and if you notice something that could be hazardous it is extremely important to take the initiative and speak up. One of the more covert safety concerns that we face is fatigue. Researchers say that seven to nine hours of sleep per night is ideal for healthy functioning. Unfortunately, for most working adults this is increasingly uncommon. 43% of adults claim that they typically get less than seven hours of sleep per night, and one in four workers stating that they had fallen asleep on the job within the past month. Fatigue can bring many safety hazards both at work and outside of work, but there are many ways that we can combat lack of sleep. Some active improvements we can make to our sleep schedule include reducing screen time, eliminating distracting sounds or lights and establishing a bedtime routine.
Another safety concern that each of us faces is slips and falls. Tripping or falling is inevitable sometimes, and often happens when we least expect it. But, other times it is possible to take precautions and avoid distractions while walking. A few ways we can decrease the chance of a fall is to avoid looking at a text or email, pace ourselves when walking in crowded areas or around corners and wear appropriate shoes for the environment you will be in. Falls have been a leading cause of workplace injury for many years, and continually force people to take time off of work due to injury. It is important that we keep our surroundings in mind and avoid distractions as best we can while walking. The final safety concern is one that we often bring on ourselves, which is impairment through prescription drugs, alcohol and even impairment due to exhaustion. The risks of impairment may seem obvious, but we can quickly lose critical thinking skills and sound judgment when impaired. A few ways that we can combat impairment are to ask for help if we are unable to perform certain tasks and trust your instincts when it comes to how you feel. There is never shame in asking for help, especially if it provides a safer situation for all involved. It is important to be aware of the hazards present in our daily lives and take the necessary steps to combat them. By holding yourself and others around you accountable, a better defense against hazards is created.
To get additional safety information, contact your local office or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
G4S Training and Development
Training and Development National Safety Month
As part of National Safety Month, the G4S Training and Development team created a training path around the various parts of workplace safety. The training covers how to recognize hazards, including how to see safety in a new way and to recognize hidden dangers. Also covered are slips, trips and falls and how you can help prevent them. While often overlooked, fatigue is also incredibly important to workplace safety. The training path covers the risks of fatigue as well as tips to avoid it. Lastly, the training path covers impairments and the dangers of working impaired, whether it be from prescription or illegal drugs or from alcohol, and ways that you can help create a safe work environment. Start the National Safety Month training path here: https://g4s.exceedlms.com/student/enrollments/create_enrollment_from_ token/bhD8aTfvZE3y3rJa7wYwg5jV If you have additional questions about the North America Training Institute, including how you can obtain certifications, course completion cards, etc., please contact your local G4S office or the G4S North America Training Institute via email at email@example.com.
