Deafblind Awareness Week 27 June – 3 July 2021

Securitay are proud to support Deafblind Awareness Week

Deafblindness is far more common than many people realise… around 400,000 people are affected by sight and hearing loss in the UK. That’s enough to fill Wembley Stadium nearly five times!

It affects everyone differently, some might need to adjust the settings on their TV or turn up the volume on the phone, and others might need assistance dogs, canes and more formal care. There may be no physical signs of partial sight or deafness therefore it is important that we make all our staff are aware that in the course of their daily duties they may encounter someone who is partially sighted or deaf. Securitay has undertaken to provide specific “deafblindness aware” training to all frontline staff.

Share the story

This year, we are asking everyone to share the story of deafblindness. So, be aware of deafblindness, understand how to help someone who has it and to tell someone else about it, to help spread the word. The more people who understand the condition, the more we can make life a little easier for people who are affected by it. By working together, we can make a huge difference!

And don’t forget to use the hashtag #DeafblindAwarenessWeek in all your posts!

New SIA qualifications for our industry

Securitay welcomes the new qualifications for our industry which come into force this year.

Sia Approved Contractor

Extract from a statement from the SIA:                                                                                                                                                       

The private security industry is increasingly recognised as providing an important role in the protection of the public. This recognition brings scrutiny, and it is more important than ever that the industry maintains and improves its standards. It is crucial that all operatives have the knowledge and skills to deal with common risks in safety critical areas. A key element of our role as the regulator is to work with the industry to raise standards in private security. The new requirements will help to achieve this. The new licence-linked qualifications reflect what we have learned from extensive research, consultation, and engagement.
