- Women in Security
Briefly, the ACS process examines how well a security provider is managed, how it serves its customers and treats employees. Companies are judged across nine categories including Strategy, Commercial Relationship Management, Resources, People and Leadership. TSG achieved ISO 9001 for a second successive year in December, but the firm describes ACS, recognised by clients, potential clients and the police, as another marker, putting it in demonstrable step with the UK security suppliers.
A spokesperson for the SIA says: “Approved contractors are committed to customer service and the compulsory licensing of their staff. This means their customers can rest assured that every private security operative deployed on their premises will be working within the law.”
TSG Managing Director, David Boswell, says: “It is a great feeling to achieve Approved Contractor status. It allows us to engage prospects which might otherwise have been unable to consider deploying our resources. Now, any organisation that wants to can bring our solutions into their security and safety plans.”
Typically doing public safety and crime prevention, police-style work, on event sites, for local authorities and for leisure and tourism, thefirm has been operating across the UK since 2006, specialising in live events and manned guarding. Clients include McLaren, Millennium Group, Edenbridge and Oxted Show, Redfest, Pickering Rally and Americana.
