We have updated our risk assessments, policy and procedures so that our team members can work safely during the Coronavirus crisis.
As restrictions are loosened by the Government, we see a new normal. Our approach to work will be surrounded by anti-viral measures. We have one priority. That is to keep our team members safe by reducing the chance of contraction or transmission of COVID-19 at work.
We can keep people safe by ensuring that strict measures are implemented and adhered to at work. The government released a new standard called “COVID-19 Secure”. This standard is issued to all employers and should be followed where appropriate. We use this standard/guidance to set out our main principles of what we will do together at Eboracum®.
The Managing Director has signed the government’s commitment/pledge. This confirmed that the Eboracum® complies with the standard and we will display this at sites where our team members work. You can download a copy of this signed commitment below. It reads “We confirm we have complied with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19”.
We will adopt the following main principles to manage a safe working environment:
There are four elements to the processes that we will use when assessing and approving team deployments:
Eboracum® has top-down commitment to making sure our team members are safe at work. For more information please contact Carl via email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The code of practice, issued by the UK Secretary of state is intended to ensure that individuals and wider communities have confidence that public body surveillance cameras are deployed to protect and support them, rather than spy on them.
Eboracum’s procedures, privacy impact assessment and processes were audited by the SSAIB (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection board) who in turn recommended certification to the Surveillance Camera Commissioner.
The audit was based on the companies use of Body Worn CCTV cameras. Body Worn CCTV is across the business for a number of reasons. It helps to reduce conflict, demonstrate transparency, prevent false allegations and can be used as evidence in a court of law.
Although accreditation is voluntary, I feel that it is important to demonstrate a transparent and compliant approach to the use of CCTV. We are leading from the front as the first Security Company to achieve this accolade and I hope that others will follow. Achieving this accreditation outlines that even small-medium businesses can put privacy, compliance and transparency high on the agenda.
Eboracum UK has taken steps to ensure that their Body worn CCTV systems operate within a legal framework and meet the standards of the Surveillance Camera Commissioner’s code of practice.
The company has published their policy and privacy impact assessment online. Please use the buttons below to download the relevant documents.
All queries relating to Ebroacum’s use of Body Worn CCTV should be directed to Carl Nickson – email@example.com.
