1st Security Solutions Ltd has just undergone our 7th Year annual SIA Approved Contractor Audit. We have increased our score by 27 points. To put this achievement into context, the ACS is the Security Industry Authority’s (SIA) Approved Contractor Scheme. To be accredited under the scheme, security companies must voluntarily submit themselves for annual inspection by one of 5 UKAS inspection bodies appointed by the SIA to carry out the task. They are then assessed and given a score. They must achieve a score of at least zero to receive ACS accreditation. 1st Security Solutions Ltd increased our score from +120 to +147. There are over 800 SIA Approved Contractors, this score places 1st Security Solutions Limited in the top 5% of all ACS accredited organisations nationally.

The objective of the SIA’s Approved Contractor scheme, according to their website, is to “raise performance standards and to assist the private security industry in developing new opportunities.” The SIA Approved Contractor Scheme gives organisations the opportunity to distinguish themselves as being among the best providers of private security services in the UK.

Tony Sheppeck, Managing Director of 1st Security Solutions Ltd, says that the business continually looks for improvement, a statement recognised in the ACS report which said: “The Company was continually striving to improve and this was evident at all levels of the organisation throughout the assessment process both during interview and review of processes, procedures and systems. Tony adds, “We are fully focused on making things better for our employees, our clients and general public”.

Although our score is not everything, our score of 147 is a testament to all the hard working staff we have invested in “well done everyone”
