SIA Approved Security

The SIA Approved Contractor Award provides a recognised hallmark of quality in the security industry and KeyPlus has secured the award again.

Reporting directly to the Home Office, the SIA Approved (Security Industry Authority) is the organisation responsible for regulating the private security industry.

Businesses looking to source security guarding, mobile patrol or key holding services look for SIA Approved Contractor status to ensure they are procuring services to meet their insurance requirements and are independently checked against Home Office recommendations, based on quality and value.

Security Procurement Requirements

Following the SIA annual review in April 2018, KeyPlus have once again demonstrated their commitment to quality, to clients, to their employees and to communities with their record scoring, fifth SIA award.

New Operations Director Neil Windsor commented on the importance of the award, 
“KeyPlus have always recognised the pre-requisite for any business procuring security services, is the ability and commitment to protect their people, buildings, equipment, reputation and assets”.

“When a business procures outsourced security, they need confidence they are appointing a security company that demonstrates fit and proper checks of their staff, alongside quality, ability, trust and commitment to comply with legislation”.

“Having the SIA Approved Contractor Award means KeyPlus clients have independent confirmation we follow legislation and best practice.”

“Most businesses will have strict insurance conditions in their policy. Most stipulate the requirement to only use providers supplying licensed security operatives, that have followed a code of practice for screening and vetting of security personnel”.

Neil continued “At KeyPlus, we only use our own full time employed security personnel. This means we have a controlled and consistent recruitment policy, which provides continuity and confidence to our clients and staff”.

“The SIA Award is more than just a badge. To KeyPlus, it is a means of ensuring we continue to improve as a business and support the security industry to improve its reputation as a whole”.
