We will assess your site and make considered recommendations to give you the best protection, meeting your needs and your budget as well as ongoing support management, dedicated control teams, a mobile supervisory team, all overseen by our protective operations management team, why would you look elsewhere for construction security in the UK?
The Unit Skillset
Unit is proud to be able to deliver Bespoke Services to all its clients to ensure that each client gets the flexibility that is needed, no two jobs are the same. In accordance with the UK Construction Skills Certification Scheme, where required Unit is able to deliver CSCS Licenced Operatives. Our construction security guards are fully licenced and have had the relevant training and received the qualifications for the work they carry out. This is a requirement of some construction companies and as our guards operate on your sites, we believe this licence is imperative for our guards in order to be as qualified as possible when entering and protecting a working construction site.
As an industry standard, security officers should be vetted for five years, however due to Unit’s stringent recruitment and training process, we ensure all our fully licensed SIA operatives are vetted for a minimum of ten years in order to deliver the best possible service and coverage to our construction clients. Furthermore where required we are able to deliver officers which are trained in conflict management, have carried out stop/search training and are customer service trained in order to carry out dual roles.
Due to the hazardous nature of construction sites, we can also deliver first aid trained and health and safety trained officers in order to assist with any issues that may arise. In line with this, our officers are knowledgeable on fire safety and we are even able to offer a fire safety consultancy assessment, followed up by a Site Specific Risk Assessment, including instructions and highlighting areas of improvement or area requiring attention.
