Orchard Facilities Management’s site security has been given the Home Office seal of approval after being granted SIA accreditation.
As an SIA Approved Contractor, Orchard FM is now amongst the best providers of private security in the UK, guaranteeing our clients the highest possible standards of customer service and safety.
Our on site security services include providing trained and vetted security personnel to protect our customers’ premises, goods and staff. We offer round the clock security and cover for specific high risk periods such as overnight.
As facilities management specialists we also act as keyholders for many of our clients, responding to call outs and emergencies out of hours and when the building is unoccupied. SIA accreditation gives added reassurance to our keyholder clients.
The Approved Contractor Scheme was set up to protect organisations from unscrupulous security firms, some of whom use their position for criminal purposes. It is also designed to raise standards across the industry and increase public confidence.
Achieving SIA Approved Contractor accreditation is a rigorous and lengthy process. We have had to demonstrate a commitment to support the objectives of the Private Security Industry Act 2001 and deliver outstanding customer service. We are also required to licence and fully train our security staff.
On site security is an area of facilities management that we have been keen to include in our portfolio for some time. As a company that supports businesses with their own compliance it was vital that we approached this additional service with the same thoroughness and ensured we fulfilled the government’s stringent code of practice.
