Case Study

The University of Oxford COVID-19 Vaccine Trial Security

Oxford University Security Services required a professional team, experienced in high-profile projects with excellent customer service skills. The team would bolster their security efforts at the Covid-19 research facility.

After a full site risk assessment, FRG recommended a 24/7 manned security detail consisting of three security officers during the day and two at night, to ensure robust protection for the trial patients, research staff and the sensitive clinical data. FRG’s SIA licensed security officers control all access and egress through the facility day and night. While safeguarding the safety and integrity of the project.

Case Study

Homes for Students

FRG have been working with Homes for Students, one of the UK’s leading providers of student accommodation, since 2016. We provide security officers who fulfil a mixed range of services including security, front of house, pastoral care, help-desk and student welfare support. By delivering the very best service to maintain the safety and wellbeing of the residents, FRG has rapidly grown the Home for Students portfolio to over 75 locations across the UK.
