Avery Dennison case study challenge

The Challenge

Any manufacturing facility needs to consider robust security and cleaning measures to protect both its people and product, particularly given the scale of the Avery Dennison site. Coupled with the value of the assets stored at the premises, this risk becomes increased and a secure and clean environment becomes paramount to the operation. Focus and attention on site needs to look at all risk elements including but not limited to Theft, Vandalism, Fire, Flood, Accidents and Breaches of Confidentiality.

With a large amount of traffic flowing through the gatehouse, from operational staff through to delivery drivers, the challenge for the security team is to ensure all vehicles granted access have the correct authorisation and are permitted to be on site. This included during the COVID-19 pandemic, where security and safety was of more importance than ever before, and processes needed to be as fluid and adaptable as the business itself.

The Solution

Since Churchill have taken over the security and cleaning of the site, we have built the foundations for a strong security presence and have continued to improve our service delivery. We control the gatehouse and closely monitor all vehicles entering the plant. This includes ensuring only authorised staff are gaining access using their assigned fobs.

Further to this, the Officers in the gatehouse are responsible for checking driver documentation, directing drivers into the correct delivery location, and escalating any issues that require escalation to Avery Dennison staff. They are also in charge of visitor inductions, ensuring all visitors to site have completed the correct paperwork and safety information.

As mentioned above, further processes and policies arose during the increased demands of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has required adaptability from our Officers on site. In response to this, , our Officers were responsible for ensuring all relevant paperwork had been completed prior to site attendance, and that it was been signed off by the Plant Manager. Along with implementing and adhering to these additional measures, the Officers also supported with the latest in governmental guidelines, such as enforcing social distancing, mask protocols and sanitation.
