ACS SIA Scores increase again......

Posted by on 14 December 2018 | Comments

In November, CSP was successfully re-accredited with the SIA’s Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) through a rigorous external audit process.  The ACS is a voluntary scheme, operated by the Security Industry Authority and is designed to promote best practice and deliver continuous improvement across the sector.  There is a scoring and benchmarking system that pitches businesses against a recognised scale of achievement.  The scheme is wide ranging with 9 separate categories of criteria for companies to compare their performance against; Strategy, Processes, Commercial Relationship Management, Financial Management, Resources, People, Leadership, Corporate Social Responsibility and Results, are all criteria that companies wishing to join must agree to be audited against.

SurfaceGuard at Twickenham

Posted by on 20 November 2018 | Comments

CSP trialled the SurfaceGuard HVM (Hostile Vehicle Mitigation) system for The RFU at Twickenham Stadium at the England v Japan fixture this November. An interesting installation that was slightly different from the norm. Cardinal Vaughan car park operates on match days to support the high demands of parking and is the main location for tailgate picnics. Pedestrians access the West Car Park and Stadium via a bridge from Cardinal Vaughan, and this was a route felt would benefit from a HVM solution as a vehicle could access the bridge.

CSP Fantasy Premier League Update November 2018

Posted by on 15 November 2018 | Comments

At the time of writing, we have an International Break for the Premier League, so an opportune time to review the standings in our CSP League: Living The Dream. We are now a third of the way into the season and there are few surprises in the actual FA Premier League, with Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs all doing well and only Manchester United probably not where most expected them to be. Likewise, those picked Lukaku and Salah on the back of last season, have had to temper expectations this though Aguero continues to perform to a fantastic level.

The Ryder Cup 2018

Posted by on 15 October 2018 | Comments

The Ryder Cup presented us with a fantastic opportunity to grow our relationship with PGA Europe by supporting the car parking/traffic management in Paris this year. A lot of planning when into this event throughout the year by Graham Arnott, including a staffing agency dropping out a few months before the event. Graham's perseverance meant that not only did we supply the numbers required (around 300 per day) whilst training and managing them, but we also took on additional work supporting the cleaning operations at short notice to ensure that the event was a success.
