GMB Launch Safeguard Campaign To Tackle Attacks On Security Staff At Work

5 Mar 2010

A brand new GMB website has been launched where security guards can log details of attacks they have suffered at work. In the past 2 years 1,550 security staff working for just 35 companies out of 600+ companies have been injured on duty by violent attacks - some very seriously. GMB, the main union for security staff has launch a new SafeGuard campaign to tackle the increasing number of attacks on security guards at work. GMB is asking all Britain’s security companies to sign the GMB SafeGuard Charter committing them to act to tackle the attacks on 350,000 licensed security staff in the course of their work. GMB members who work as Security Officers launch this GMB SafeGuard campaign as a direct result of the increased abuse and violent attacks that they have seen, dealt with, or been subjected to in recent times.
