The mining sector presents many security and safety challenges due to the number of people working on projects and the fact that projects are often in remote locations where there are under-served communities and a poor state presence. Britianico Security Group works to identify site security issues and assess risk factors in order to develop a specific site-security plan that includes the objectives, strategies and responsibilities required to ensure site safety, and health and security goals.

While security provision involves carefully designed systems, processes and technology, it is primarily about people. BSG’s experienced security team assists in the establishment of a safety culture, to control site access and reduce losses due to theft. The security plan for a mining project includes a comprehensive site-security training programme and risk management training for personnel to provide them with the tools to identify hazards and respond accordingly. Mining project security also includes planning to manage threats from a wide variety of sources from environmental and community groups to potential terrorist threats.
