Our commitment to health and safety
At SIS, we’re committed to protecting the health and safety of our staff, clients and the communities they work in.
Our staff members are trained to use risk minimisation and risk avoidance strategies to make safety a priority as they carry out their duties. We strive to build teams with the ability to show initiative and take responsibility in difficult situations.
Our Occupational Health and Safety Policy is consistent with the role and duties of a Security Officer.
We have embraced ISO standards since 2003 and are progressing towards achieving formal ISO 9001:2008 accreditation.

All printer cartridges are recycled and disposed of with environmental concerns in mind. Our work systems – including health and safety, environmental, auditing, service delivery and customer support – are documented and routinely reviewed to ensure they remain at the highest standard.
We have embedded Risk Management Planning in our training and all our operational staff have RMP competencies.
We conduct detailed site inspections and equipment appraisals, operational and continuity checks, radio checks and many others that are designed to identify and treat risks.
We prescribe a formal risk management planning process and engage with all of our clients to ensure we cover off all considerations.
Critical Area Management
In critical areas i.e. where there is a likelihood of significant safety, operational financial or environmental compromise, we will develop a formal Safe Working Procedure. This procedure will prescribe mandatory actions that the Operator must perform.
In less critical areas, we ensure that our Officers are equipped with Work Manuals that summarise operational tasks and address known risks.
