SGL Response to Latest COVID-19 Restrictions

On the evening of March 23rd, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced unprecedented steps to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic by restricting the movements of the UK public.

At SGL, we are committed to maintaining our service to clients throughout the challenges presented by the COVID-19 emergency.

In anticipation of further restrictions, prior to the announcement, all staff were emailed with a message from Operations Director, Allan Burnett QPM, outlining the status as our security employees as essential workers.

In addition, a procedure was provided to follow if challenged by the police (or other authority) when travelling to or from work. This included presenting the message and their Security Industry Authority licence. We included our 24/7 Control Centre telephone number should a further check be deemed necessary.

We are following this up via our managers reinforcing that communication directly to staff.

We will continue to monitor the situation, ensuring that our frontline staff are available to safely undertake their duties in keeping people and property safe and secure. We will continue to work with all our clients and colleagues very closely in this challenging time.
