We’re delighted to announce that we are now an SIA Approved Contractor.
The Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) provides a recognised hallmark of quality within the private security industry and it was very important to us that we achieved this status. For the past three years we’ve been providing manned solutions such as Security Guards, Gatemen, Dog Handlers and Concierge staff across the UK, but we knew we needed to add that extra level of assurance to give customers peace of mind that all staff provided are of the highest quality.
Becoming an SIA Approved Contractor means that we’re regulated and inspected by the security industry authority which works directly with the home office. As a tested company it means we meet all UK insurance company requirements along with now being able to work with councils, national rail and the MOD.
Many companies go through this attainment when they’re small, but due to the recent massive growth of the Biosite group, the audit had to take place across a larger organisation. This was a great accomplishment. In addition to this, we also scored higher than ever expected for an initial ACS entry, which is a true testament to the hard work and dedication from everyone across the company.
Simon Oakley, Operations Director of Biosite Security, says, “Although we’ve been working to the standard since we began, it’s great to now be recognised and welcomed into the approved contractor scheme. Through strict auditing with ISOQAR, our management team has been able to attain the required achievement level and surpass expectations in multiple areas. This goes some way in proving that our team continuously aims high and achieves it.
“We provide a range of valued services such as Traffic Marshalls, Security Guards and Dog Handlers to many of the top UK construction companies. With their continued support and business, we aim to further concrete ourselves within the industry by re-establishing what they value within security personnel.”
