ZED SECURITY AND GUARDING
Staff newsletter - June 2020
Welcome to ZED's Sixth staff newsletter of 2020.
It has been a busy time for all with hospitals going from strength to strength, all the other duties ZED currently work on.
With the lock down being relaxed things are slowly returning to "normal".
Black Jacket Group is an events company that has organised this initiative to thank keyworkers and care professionals that have, and continue to care for the community during this pandemic. We are raising funds in order to provide as many keyworkers as possible with a turkey at Christmas. Follow our journey to see how we plan to do so by organising fundraiser events and challenges to spread awareness, to thank those that have exceeded expectations during this difficult time.
How you can get involved:
• Follow our social media @thankourheroesuk on Instagram, Facebook and TikTok
• Donate a turkey and nominate your hero on our website www.thankourheroes.uk
• Support our fundraiser events; whether thats sharing our posts to your story, attending our events or talking to your family and friends about our organisation!
Let’s make Christmas special for the people who have worked tirelessly and continue to do so through this pandemic

Events have now started, we are supporting Danny in his new venture!
"#ColTPT worked alongside @ZGuarding with Patch & Harry their drug & weapon dogs. The noses of officers & Patch led to a driver stopped, concealed drugs found & an arrest for drug driving & concerned in the supply of drugs. #YouSaidWeDid" - (text from Essex Police Twitter Page)
We are looking for new employees if you know anyone looking for a role within security please forward their details to Alasdair.

SIGNING IN SHEETS
Just a reminder to everyone to please make sure they sign in and out of every shift. This is really important from both a Health & Safety and emergency protocol perspective, plus also to confirm when you are at work. If for any reason your venue does NOT have a signing in book, contact us and we'll get this resolved as a matter of urgency.
Please make sure you all sign in the ZED Security and Guarding log book at the Colchester General Hospital which is located at the help desk on the left hand side of the desk.
This is to ensure correct payment and used for any fire checks that take place.
Please could everyone download the citizenAID app, via App Store or Google Play.
This app contains information on both vehicle and acid attacks, alongside shooting, stabbing and bombing incidents. There is also guidance for what to do on encountering an unattended item in a public place. This guidance also supports the response of staff who work in these areas where unattended items are a common occurrence, and is great source of information for anyone working within the security industry.

CUSTOMER FEEDBACK FORMS
In order to enable to us to ensure that we are keeping to our high standards of work and also to receive feedback on how we can improve our service can I request that you can take a moment to fill out our short feedback questionnaire.
STAFF FEEDBACK AND APPRAISAL FORMS
On a negative note I am still waiting for people to action Staff Appraisals and Employee Feedback Forms.
These need to be done for your benefit. It only takes 5 minutes which you all have while working so no excuses. I will be following up those that haven’t completed them.
If you’re having troubles come to the office and Al will only be too happy to help.
Thank you for those that have done so.
FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Until next month, stay safe!
