Project scope

We manage the security of access points for all Aaron Access and Aaron Rail clients. This allows us to pass on a cost saving to these clients by providing a whole package rather than having to sub-contract this service.


The benefit of this is that we are able to work with a team in which we are familiar with their processes and how they operate (as another part of this business) so we can pass on this strong collaborative effort to benefit the client.

Aaron Access Scope


All guards are PTS-trained, along with certification in SIA Guarding, Triple STS and first marshalling. Aaron Rail works with a NSAR gold-accredited training provider to carry out this training and all team members are part of our training matrix to ensure competencies do not expire. 


Managing fatigue


Fatigue in security work is a significant factor – which is why our security teams are in line with all Network Rail fatigue regulations (taking into account the changes coming into place later this year). Our digital resourcing system includes use of the HSE Fatigue Calculator Index which allows us to ensure that our colleagues are ready to work. We also complete on site checks ahead of a shift to ensure that, even though they may be in line with regulations, that they are alert and safety-focused.




In this agreement, Aaron Access implements use of a Lone Worker app – using technology as part of a checking-in process. Each colleague has a 15-minute window to confirm all is OK on site and this data is also fed through to the client, should they wish to see this. Escalation processes are in place should they not check in and we have contingency team members that can be deployed to either provide additional support, or check-in should there be an issue.
