The Security Advisors at Derisk understand that the protection of infrastructure, which is both commercially important and classed as high-risk locations, is of paramount importance. Our security advice (recognised by the Department for Transport) in areas such as major railway buildings, stations and railway infrastructure is extremely valuable for the protection and safety of valuable / vulnerable infrastructure. We can advise on construction safety, security and logistics as a collective package of advice / service.
We ensure effective management of both security and safety in detailed documented plans, procedures and physical processes are in place to ensure the wellbeing of users, staff and stakeholders.
The identification of any potential areas for improvement or target strengthening cannot be understated, especially where compliance with both national and industry-specific legislation is also prevalent.
A robust documented and physical security management system can not only improve security and safety, but also assist with the reduction of crime and aid in the development of further measures for safety such as visitor and contractor induction processes, which are improved with short but relevant briefing aides. This ensures that no matter how stringent the security requirements, there is no impact on either operational processes, or the delivery of other key services and projects.
