Security and Safety:
The safety of our residents is always our first and foremost concern. It is for this reason that our staff are trained fire wardens, our night mangers are in the process of undertaking additional training to become SIA licenced, we have two first aiders and all of our residential Rep’s agree to undergo first aid training as part of their residential Rep agreement.
Entrance to the building is via a secure electronic fob entry system. Fobs are given to residents upon check in and can be cancelled at any time by staff, this prevents unauthorised access to the building should a fob be lost or not returned by a previous resident. The same system is also used for access to the on site laundry room.
The presence of the night managers ensures that the safety and peace of mind of all of our residents is taken care of as well as preventing any unwanted visitors and safeguarding the building. The night managers are able to help with minor maintenance issues (lightbulbs, etc) and they are available in the main office during their shift should a resident wish to talk or require any assistance.
Additionally, we are supported with on call security from a local SIA registered security company who’s contact details are displayed in and around the building for assistance if a staff member is not available.
All staff at St Andrews Place are Disclosure and Barring Service checked.
