Security is an aspect that remains at the heart of the Company’s ethos, and an area which is continually at the forefront of investment. Whilst we ensure our equipment is second to none, we also invest within our employees to enhance the service they can provide.
During 2016, a statement was issued by the UK MoD regarding new security measures being introduced to each Defence Munition (DM) site across the UK. This statement addressed a number of concerns surrounding Security Clearances. A number of spot checks identified individuals who were found to have insufficient Security Clearance to enter DM sites, and were subsequently refused, with some examples leading to cargos/vehicles being impounded.
Rest assured, we pride ourselves on our compliance in this area. At LSS, every single member of staff (inc. Senior Management and Administration) have been cleared to SC Level through the UK Government. This not only allows us to access to the sensitive DM sites, but gives each and every one of our customers total piece of mind knowing their consignments are being handled under full compliance and confidentiality from the moment we received the request.
