Show and Event Guards are confident we can supply a fully accountable, well managed guarding service to meet the individual needs of any Customer and their security budget.

COMPANY PROFILE

The presence of a security officer acts as a visual deterrent of crime, protecting your property and minimising the risk of damage from theft, vandalism and other criminal activities. Additionally, security guards control access points into your property for visitors or legitimate working personnel. Our guards can dissuade thieves from retail outlets, man front reception desks at corporate facilities, and even control access to car parking facilities.

Those organisations that meet these standards are awarded Approved Contractor status. This accreditation provides purchasers of private security services with independent proof of a contractor’s commitment to quality. Security suppliers must meet 89 different performance indicators which are based upon widely recognised business improvement models (including ISO9001:2000 and European Foundation for Quality Management Excellence Model).

Health & Safety Show & Event Security treat health and safety with the utmost respect and regard the promotion of safety and hygiene within its business activities as an essential part of the company’s responsibilities. We utilise the services of an external auditor to provide a tightly monitored audit system specifically for Show & Event Security’s health and safety matters. This system includes a yearly inspection of both the office premises and procedures carried out at event sites. The inspection is clearly documented and readily available to any client should they wish to view the contents. Furthermore, the auditors ensure that all management and senior event operatives are trained in health and safety matters and that the company stays ahead of any relevant legislative changes.

General policy 60

1.01 The company recognises that its activities relate to, or are carried out at, office and/or sites where hazards may exist and it is, therefore, its policy to so conduct its activities that the health and safety of its employees and others who may be affected by such activities are ensured so far as is reasonably practicable. 1.02 The company policy is embodied in the following six objectives: 1. To set and maintain appropriate standards for health and safety as they relate to employees and others affected by the company’s activities. 2. To maintain these standards by following statutory requirements established company and national practices and, where and when appropriate, to review and improve these practices on a continuing basis. 3. To ensure that all employees and others affected by the company’s activities are informed of these standards by effective training and communication. 4. To ensure that all employees understand their responsibilities and discharge them with reasonable care. 5. To encourage the participation of employees in accident prevention and the promotion of effective joint consultation in health and safety matters, and to see that suitable arrangements exist within the company to further such joint consultation. 6. To co-operate with the appropriate local and national authorities in matters relating to the health and safety of employees and the company and, where reasonably practicable, of others who may be affected by the Company’s activities. 1.03 The policy will be subject to review and revision as necessary and any changes will be brought to the notice of employees of the company as soon as reasonably practicable after they have been made.


COMPANY PROFILE EVENTS MANAGEMENT SERVICES TRAINING

1.04 The overall implementation of the Company Policy is the responsibility of the Managing Director of the Company. The MD will in turn expressly delegate the day to day implementation of matters relating to health and safety outlined in the six objectives of 1.02 via the Company Managers to the designated staff who will carry out their duties in accordance with the health and safety organisation outlined in the chart forming part of this statement.
