Ghurka services (ex-special forces)

Managed by bi-lingual former Army officers, G4S is the largest employer of former British Army Gurkhas in the UK. Our philosophy is based on the Gurkha ethos of professionalism, discipline and honour. Come rain or shine, we offer peace of mind that your assets are safe, with an industry-leading record of attendance to ensure continuity of service.

Working with a military strategy in mind, we will select, train and deploy a cohesive workforce at the shortest notice to protect your critical assets.

Casualty simulation service

Our casualty simulation service launched in October 2010 provides customers with realistic and credible casualty simulation scenarios, which help to prepare a range of workers including armed forces personnel and emergency services staff for casualty situations they may experience within their roles. We have a proven commitment to delivering a consistent, reliable and professional service to deliver the highest quality. To achieve this, we use specialist simulation make-up artists and prosthetics, simulated training packages and casualty and amputee actors.

Metal theft protection

Metal theft is regarded as ‘the second largest threat to UK infrastructure after terrorism’*. Incidents can result in costs for repairing damaged assets, lost customer minutes and even regulatory fines resulting from a failure to deliver a service. Theft also negatively impacts reputation and cause damage to the environment (e.g. fire risks or leaking oil, which can disperse into the water table after the metal is removed from the site).

Furthermore, there is also the risk of death or injury to the public, an employee or a thief who can enter a substation, unaware of the dangers. G4S now offers metal theft prevention services. We will work with you to analyse incident trends in your area, identify your high risk sites and gather additional information using overt or covert operations, as required.
