As part of GMB's SafeGuard campaign GMB continues to work to reduce violence and attacks against security workers.
That's why GMB are in discussions with the SIA as part of their new initiative to look at the extent of violence, the sort of violence that's taking place and how standards can be improved to prevent such violence.
As part of this work the SIA are currently undertaking a survey across the industry and are particularly keen to hear from security officers and personnel who are at the forefront of dealing with violence and abuse at work.
The survey is designed to get a brief idea of the level of violence faced by those working in the industry. It also gives anyone answering the chance to give a view on the measures that could drive down the level of violence.
It’s a short survey and won’t take much of your time, but it’s really important that we have the information to help make the industry a safer and better environment to work in. The survey is now open and available until the 20th March 2015.
