Crowd Management and Social Distancing
Over the last month The SES Group, like many businesses, has faced many challenges due to COVID-19.
Whilst during the initial stages of lockdown we focused on internal development to improve as a business, as social distancing was introduced we commenced work on two large projects.
Transport for London (TFL) Underground Social Distancing
We were contracted by TFL to provide over 300 customer service stewards to over 100 tube stations across the underground network.
Once staff rostering and deployment was complete it was a challenge to mobilise a large operation ensuring essential PPE, such as masks and gloves, would be available to all staff on a daily basis so they could work in a safe environment.
This was met with great feedback from both the client (TFL) as well as the travelling public who recognised our efforts to keep them safe during these unprecedented times.
Network Rail – Crowd Management and Social Distancing
We were tasked by Network Rail to supply crowd control stewarding to 6 major stations across London.
We were asked to deploy teams to encourage and promote social distancing as well as provide sanitising stations where hand sanitiser and masks are offered to members of the public using public transport.
This has grown as the lockdown has eased and we have progressed from providing 100 staff per day to over 1000 staff across London, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester and Glasgow. The company has taken great pride in being part of the countries effort to resume business by assisting in keeping such critical transport infrastructure mobile.
We continue to make every effort to work to the highest standard and to give reassurance in keeping those safe that are needing to use the public transport network.

“As The SES Group continue to work hard in keeping the London transport system safe we had the pleasure of Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, passing through London Bridge station to say thank you to our staff and congratulate them on their efforts.
It is great to receive recognition from such an influential figure in London and this is great motivation for our staff to continue their efforts, in what are still difficult times.
Once again thank you to all The SES Group staff who continue to do us proud each and every day!”

Stewarding and Crowd Control
The SES Group provide fully trained stewards and offer outstanding stewarding services, honed over 20 years in the industry.
We offer CCTV monitoring services from a central control room via a secure internet connection, keeping watch over all areas that receive CCTV coverage. With our operatives monitoring your CCTV, this ensure that we can confirm any reports of unusual activity on your site – minimising the chances of false alarms, also allowing for a quick response time from the appropriate services, as we’ll be able to contact them directly, should we need to.
Keyholding is a specialist security service where a contracted security firm holds a set of keys to your commercial premises — in a secure, off-site location — to be used in the event of a security breach. Our operatives are trained in keyholding security services and we have Approved Contractor Status (ACS) for our keyholding services.
Using a qualified, trusted security contractor like The SES Group as your primary keyholding company means we’ll attend your site after notification of the alarm, patrolling the area and taking any necessary action, with all findings and processes reported and fed back to you.
The SES Group’s mobile patrol service provides a reliable presence on your site whenever you need it. After agreeing the number of visits with you, we’ll patrol your site at random intervals, day and night, in our fully-branded vehicle, offering a striking, effective deterrent to any potential intruders.
