Mitie has been appointed by Springfields Fuels Ltd, a nuclear fuel production site in Lancashire, to provide a security solution. Under the terms of the agreement, a dedicated team of trained operatives from Mitie’s total security management business will operate alongside local emergency services to deliver a “safe, secure nuclear environment”.
According to Mitie, the company will work closely with Springfields Fuels’ management team to implement specific technologies and innovation, tapping into best practise and expertise from across its related portfolio, which will help to enhance security at the site.
Skillweb has launched SmartTask for Security, an easy-to-use proof of attendance application that sends up-to-the-second data to businesses about the whereabouts of their security staff, their rounds and locations visited.
On site, SmartTask works by swiping mobile phones over a tag/label unique to a site, registering the presence of guards. They are then able to access risk assessments and site-specific data at the point of scan, enhancing lone worker protection.
Accountability of security firms is also assured through the new Customer Portal, which enables end users to see when a guard attends their site and what actions have been taken.
