Munnelly partnered with Lend Lease to provide a logistics, security and waste service to this project; with the patrol management system being the most effective element of the package. Munnelly Security believes that one of the core elements of providing an effective manned security service is performance monitoring of our personnel. Our patrol management system has been designed to ensure a quick, effective and reliable method of managing the patrol activities of our Security Officers. To assist our Clients with the patrolling and site security, Munnellys advised the use of a diester patrol system. This simple but effective system guarantees that security patrols are carried out 24 hours a day and is achieved by placing check points at key areas around the site.
Munnelly Logistics then linked the fire management plan with the patrol management system, allowing us to monitor fire signage and fire points. Any redundant signs would be removed, notice boards would be updated and inspections would take place. Night patrols were also recorded by the information gathered from the swipe points of areas checked. These areas were situated at the hoarding lines, gates, floor areas and any other key incident spots for fire, theft or vandalism. This was then updated onto the security plan and checked regularly for any common occurrences or issues of investigation. Every movement was seen on a patrol report which was available on request by the client.
