During the Christmas lockdown period A. A. Security Ltd had a really busy period.  One of our clients had us deploying 24 hour security cover to two new sites that required 24 hour gatekeeping and front-of house duties. We also had to provide them with a work-bubble cleaning team.  We had to ensure that adequate emergency cover was made in place to cover for any of our security team members who may have been infected with COVID-19 - meaning in reserve we had to have whole new teams ready to be deployed.

Our officers were not able to mix on different sites as each site had it's own work-team bubble and of course the mandatory hand-sanitizer/soap and water had to be available on site.  Our officers work in isolation much of the time meaning that facemasks only had to be worn when others were on site. 

Our cleaning team were working 24/7 over Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing day, during which a team of 3 cleaners worked with a bubble of client operatives, shuffling through 8 hour work cycles. Not one shift was missed and so far not one COVID-19 infection reported.  Officers were encouraged to use cycles, to walk or travel on personal transport were possible (this does mean that vehicle drivers were encouraged not to share).

Employees were given clear instructions on what to do during signs of infection which mainly meant not to turn up for work.  Temperature checks were made on all deployed officers by our supervisors who were armed with temperature handguns.  Moreover, supervisors and our control team were informed of the need to remove people from site if any symptoms, such as frequent coughing occurred.


As we enter into a new full lockdown our expectation is that we will see a further increase in business and we assure all potential clients that we have an emergency plan in place to assure you of a seamlessly professional service.
