Actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and taking steps to help keep our people, clients and community safe
As a global security leader, we're committed to continuing to provide safety and security to all our clients and the community.
Aligning with Public Health Organizations
We have crisis management teams focused on our response to this pandemic and we have detailed business continuity plans in place, with clearly defined escalation procedures. We are closely monitoring updates from the World Health Organization regarding COVID-19 and will continue to seek guidance from public health officials and government agencies.
Protecting Employees and Clients
As our employees interact with clients and the general public daily, it is very important they understand what needs to be done to avoid catching or spreading the virus. We have implemented several measures to ensure safety, including a new training series: Working Safely in Changing Times. This training encompasses global best practices from Securitas operations across dozens of diverse industries and thousands of clients, as well as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) data and guidelines.
We are also reinforcing good hygiene practices at all our Securitas premises and on-site, and making sure handwashing facilities, hand sanitizers and antiseptic wipes are readily available to all our officers. We are working with suppliers to source protective supplies and have protocols in place to activate deep cleans and appropriate quarantine procedures, as recommended by government and health agencies. We have specific quarantine and communication procedures in place if an employee is diagnosed with COVID-19 or self-isolates in line with the latest government advice. In addition, we have placed restrictions on business travel and on intra-office working and have well established remote-working solutions in place.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your local Securitas manager or email@example.com.
Maintaining Critical Functions
Our core business-critical functions have been segregated and access further restricted to protect our operations and help prevent the spread of the virus. This includes our 24/7 Securitas Operations Center, for which we have comprehensive business continuity and disaster recovery plans.
Collaborating on New Best Practices
The Securitas COVID-19 Knowledge Library is comprised of information collected from our broad network of field managers and more than 90,000 well-trained security officers who have been on the front lines since day one of the crisis. Our leaders and field teams rely on and continually contribute to, this dynamic, ever-evolving library of COVID-19 screening practices and protocols.
