Stop sign on rail tracks

SafeSec provides professional security services to rail and infrastructure projects nationally. Working closely with rail construction companies and the London Underground, we service multimillion pound projects and aim to become Europe’s leading security provider.

Unlike many other security firms, we offer a comprehensive service tailored to our client’s unique needs, and in turn guarantee a highly specialised and experienced level of service. We understand the pressures on the rail and infrastructure industries, and help to ensure that construction and enabling projects run as smoothly as possible.

Rail security personnel

The reliability and training of security personnel is of major concern, which is why we actively recruit ex-military and police to our skilled team of guards. A large percentage of our personnel come from military backgrounds, and many have provided compound security in challenging, dangerous and hostile environments. Our employees and sites are consistently monitored and audited, in order to continually uphold and improve our performance.

Railway compound security

As well as trackside security for upgrade works, SafeSec offers compound security to major sites. We service a number of high-profile London-based projects, including Crossrail, and our qualified guards provide a range of security services, such as controlling staff access, monitoring noise levels, and dealing with suspect packages.

CCTV systems

SafeSec designs, supplies and installs CCTV systems for use on rail and infrastructure projects. These systems are bespoke. Because SafeSec is not tied to a single supplier, we have the ability to tailor each system to the client’s unique needs. From IP camera systems to Network Rail type-approved non-conductive systems, SafeSec can provide the right system for your project.

Access control systems

SafeSec designs, supplies and installs a wide range of access control systems, all of which are designed with our individual client’s needs in mind. We work closely with DataScope, as well as all other major brands to ensure each client has the best possible system tailored to their requirements.

These systems can be linked in to any number of physical barriers, such as turnstiles and gates, all of which can be provided via SafeSec. Furthermore, our systems have also been upgraded to monitor time and attendance, as well as fatigue management, something that is of growing importance on Carillion sites due to strict Network Rail guidelines.

Site access controllers

We provide trained and experienced site access controllers (SACs) nationally for clients working on projects including Crossrail and Thameslink. In collaboration with leading access control companies, we are continuously analysing and developing our systems to ensure they remain industry leading and continue to benefit our client’s projects.

Framework agreement

As of 2015, SafeSec have achieved approved supplier status for Carillion PLC nationwide. This framework agreement ensures that we can operate on Carillion sites without the need to go through the standard tendering process, removing the inherent costs associated with this. This is helping us to expand our business at an accelerated rate, with new sites due to become operational at Sheffield and Doncaster in the coming months.

Protecting Britain’s Infrastructure

SafeSec specialises in high quality security solutions. We are capable of providing an array of services to the rail and infrastructure sectors, and pride ourselves on changing the perception that all security companies are the same. Our service is consistently professional; on time, on budget, with flawless execution.
