SECURITAY is one of the longest established independent security firms in Scotland with a vast range of experience gained from thirty years in the provision of security services for commercial premises including Factories, Offices, Ports and Wind Farms both for the public and private sector.

SECURITAY has recognised the need to provide a specific level of management support, to accounts with a varied amount of weekly contracted hours at single and multiple locations. This is specifically to ensure we deliver consistent, high quality levels of service, which not only meets, but also exceeds the requirements and expectations of the client as a whole.

Assignment Instructions:

As standard company policy, one of our Security Consultants would firstly carry out a full risk assessment of the premises in question free of charge. The risk assessment report would then be incorporated into a detailed ‘Site Instructions Dossier’ to be retained on-site for the security officer’s use, and a copy given to the client for reference and authentication. These instructions would detail any other required responsibilities/duties and emergency contact information.

Recruitment and Training:

The information gathered for the Site Instruction Dossier, in conjunction with personnel instruction, would be used in the recruitment and training of the security officers. This is to ensure that the correct calibre of staff is recruited for the specific requirements on site.

A SIA approved training programme is undertaken by all recruits, with further “On Site” training where all ‘possibilities’ and ‘weak-points’ are catered for and given any necessary special attention.

We endeavour to place personnel who are compatible to both the working environment and any special client requirements.


All staff are fully vetted to BS7858 standards, meaning that all security officers undergo an initial five-year check with a further written ten-year check; in addition all staff undergo a Police Check. All staff must be fully cleared within twelve weeks of their start date otherwise, employment is terminated. Further vetting to twenty years is carried out for staff employed in Marine & Aviation and MOD contracts.

All of our personnel hold a valid Security Industry Authority (SIA) License either in Manned Guarding, Door Supervision or CCTV Monitoring.

Contract Management:

The operations Manager, will undertake responsibility for all assignments he will ensure correct manning and day to day support of the contract, through his team of Area Managers, Control Room personnel and Duty Supervisors.

Service review meetings are essential for the flow of information and monitoring the levels of service. Service review meetings would be customer / site driven, the format of these meetings should be clearly defined as should the role of individuals attending; all meetings would be attended by the Operations Manager.

Quality Control:

SECURITAY is an SIA approved contractor and operates a quality control system to BS7499 standards for Uniformed Guarding companies. This system applies to all aspects of the operation, from receipt of an enquiry through survey, composition of specifications, procurement and agreed support service thereafter. It allows for on-going reviews both internally and with the client thereby addressing both the client’s needs and expectations.

Health & Safety and Environment:

SECURITAY recognises the importance of providing safe and environmentally healthy working conditions and practices, and fully accepts its legal responsibilities as an employer in meeting duties imposed upon it by the Health & Safety Act 1974. SECURITAY recognises it is equally important that the employees accept their own responsibility in Health & Safety and Environmental matters.
