COVID testing

Inhouse COVID testing

Posted on Categories: News

Our In-house COVID Testing at our Solihull Office is proving very successful and gratefully to date we have not had any more staff test positive. The lateral flow testing is a fast and simple way to test employees who do not have symptoms of COVID-19, but who may still be potentially spreading the virus without being aware. The tests are easy to use and give results in less than 30 minutes. We have provided a dedicated COVID testing room at our Head Office which is secure, private and sanitised for our employees to use. We are really pleased it is making staff feel safe when coming to work, knowing that we are doing all we can to reduce the risk of COVID in the workplace.

New contracts help Integrity plan for a ‘technology’ driven future

Posted on Categories: Business, News, Press release, UncategorizedTags:

Expanding our offering is helping a leading security specialist come through Covid-19 with a number of new contract wins.

This approach, combined with significant investment in our dedicated control room, has seen us win prestigious deals to look after a high-profile apartment scheme in London called Leon House and the Mailbox in Stockport, an old post office depot that has been transformed into a mix of residential, commercial and leisure opportunities.

“We were already moving towards more electronic security and remote monitoring and I think the pandemic has accelerated this, with clients less keen to have people on site but still maintain secure premises,” explained Will Adams, Managing Director of Integrity.

“The other big move we’ve seen is the desire for us to offer more facility management services, including taking care of cleaning and looking after new signage requirements.”

He continued: “This has now been built further into the Integrity core offer and is something that a number of our existing clients are starting to take advantage of. It is also proving a competitive differential when pitching for new work in what is the new normal.”

Integrity Security Group provides bespoke security services to a blue-chip client base spread across the country, including offices, industrial units, multi-tenanted developments, residential and commercial schemes

Services range from manned guarding, mobile patrols, key holding and alarm response to temporary guarding and strategic consultancy on security matters.

Employing 110 people, we also invest heavily in expanding our, has also invested heavily in expanding its electronic security capabilities, including complex CCTV, access control and fire and intruder alarm systems.

Will, who has been appointed to a British Security Industry Association (BSIA) steering group continued: “Every business has had to pivot to adjust to the challenges of Covid-19 and our industry is no different.

“First and foremost, we’ve had to ensure all of our staff were safe throughout the pandemic and then we’ve had to look at how we can change the way we do things to guarantee security for our clients, whilst also being able to minimise human contact.

“This has seen a lot more remote monitoring that we carry out from our purpose-built control centre in Solihull and increased investment in electronic access solutions. Whilst there will always be demand for manned guarding services, the big growth opportunities will focus on technology and how we integrate it effectively into the security offer.”

We are also throwing our backing behind a new awareness campaign jointly launched by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), the Security Institute and the Security Commonwealth.

It intends to highlight the essential role Security Officers play in public life and to improve the public’s respect and recognition of their skills and competencies they demonstrate to successfully undertake their jobs.

Will concluded: “The campaign will showcase security professionals as a respected, valued, professional service provider contributing to and creating a safe and secure environment: critical to protecting people, places, and property – a key worker that is seldom acknowledged and yet is firmly embedded in our daily lives.”

planned preventative maintenance

Check with your insurance before postponing your fire alarm servicing

Posted on Categories: Business, News, UncategorizedTags: , , ,

As recommended by our industry body IFEDA (The Independent Fire Engineering & Distributors Association), we are advising customers that if they want to postpone any Fire Alarm service visits and weekly bell tests that we strongly suggest gaining written confirmation that this is acceptable from their insurance provider.

If customers ask us to postpone a service visit, then they are likely going outside of the maintenance requirements under British Standards. This is why we are advising approval from your insurance provider as if the worse does happen there is a concern that they would refuse to payout due to the maintenance and testing schedule of the system not being kept up to date.

Health and safety are always at the forefront of our minds and underpins everything we do in our industry and so we would like to remind property managers of their continuing obligations under current legislation to maintain fire protection systems and equipment, but obviously, during the current pandemic, this brings additional challenges and considerations.

We have already developed rigorous best working practices in these trying times so we’d urge all clients to contact us when their servicing is required to discuss how we can work to ensure you’re on-going compliance.
