The Westminster Group has extensive experience providing guarding services across a broad spectrum of sectors and services.
Static Guarding is a vital part of any business that requires a constant security presence. Not only must guards have the relevant qualifications and natural ability to secure premises during overnight deployments but guards are often required to operate as a receptionist or concierge working as the customers' initial interface on site.
Using Westminster own management portal all guarding activities are recorded in real-time including, where appropriate, site visitor & vehicle management reports. All data is available directly to the client through the portal providing a fully transparent operation process and driving billing.
Using iPads Guards will ‘Book on’ when they arrive for their shift and continue to use the system to record site access movement and regular ‘Guard Checks’ until they ‘Book Off’ at the end of their shift.
This process ensures the site is protected at all times and enables the Operations Control Room to monitor Guards throughout their shift.
This control measure gives the client peace of mind that they are receiving a service of the highest quality and it reassures the Guards that they have the full support required.
Protecting large remote locations is not typical of any other form of security, because in rural locations with large open areas criminals have a much safer haven to carry out their operations. Even if your installation has video facilities, trespassers know they have the time to elude static cameras and reach their targets. They know too that if an alarm is raised then the longer response time for police or offsite security gives them every opportunity to getaway. With Westminster's Remote Area Security teams on the ground that won't happen. Protecting your property, installations, plant machinery, equipment and employees. On-site and visible, Westminster provides 24-hour protection no matter how remote the location.
Developed initially for the Renewable Energy Sector, Westminster can provide the most effective rural security solution for companies of all types nationwide.Because protecting premises, structures and equipment in rural and remote locations present several unique challenges. Companies choosing to patrol their large outdoor operations must contend with:
• Employing and deploying the appropriate type of Security Officers.
• Getting those Security Officers physically onto the construction site at the allotted times, consistently, and especially so in winter.
• The ground domination of very large areas of remote/rough terrain.
• The impracticality for Contractors to return all plant equipment to the home compound each night.
• Remote crane pads/cabling operations at “delicate” stages.
• Communications and lone worker safety.
Westminster recognises that to be effective on such projects our Security Personnel need to stay on-site. The Security Officers we use for rural security embrace working away Protecting large remote locations is not typical of any other form of security
