PARSIPPANY, N.J. — Aug. 4, 2020 — Securitas Security Services North America Division announced today its latest series of COVID-19 specific training for its 100,000+ security officers and field managers, along with enhancements to its industry-leading COVID Global Knowledge Library. Each of these initiatives further distinguishes the company’s Access Control Screening solutions which are providing front line support for the safe, secure and smart re-openings of thousands of client sites across North America.

“The extensive, constantly updated training of our frontline security officers has become a critical and distinctive asset for us,” said Greg Anderson, Securitas North America Guarding President and CEO.

The company’s newest series of COVID officer training, Working Safely in Changing Times, delivers a rich set of new and/or enhanced courses; including:

  • An Introduction to Pandemics & Social Distancing
  • Screening Tools and Practices
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Proper Sanitizing Techniques
  • Industry-specific Applications 

An additional module, Working Safely in Changing Times – Manager Edition, is specifically designed to prepare managers to support clients and employees and meets the needs associated with safe, secure business operations in the increasingly dynamic environment of widespread health concerns.

Providing security that effectively addresses ever-changing requirements demands a constant flow of data from and to the field. Securitas’ adaptive procedures draw heavily on the company’s COVID-19 Global Knowledge Library, which is an accumulation of best practices gleaned from ongoing CDC recommendations and the company’s COVID-19 specific field experiences. This Library now reflects the key learnings across dozens of industries and thousands of clients globally, including numerous Fortune 500 health care, manufacturing, consumer products and technology firms.

“Our Global Knowledge Library is another distinct asset we are leveraging to our clients’ full advantage,” said Anderson. “Feedback from our clients continues to reinforce the high value of our COVID resources and services, and their ability to quickly address new situational requirements.”
