Group Security Policy Statement
Committed to grant an undisturbed project-flow within a protected work environment, HARIROD GROUP enforces a 24/ 7 security routine on all project sites. The overall threat level and methods of operations and measures – that HARIROD GROUP will apply for security purposes – are being assessed and implemented individually by means of a security plan, prior to every project´s kick off. The implementation of the security plan and its proper application is monitored by the HARIROD GROUP Security coordinator in close liaison with the client´s project officers and the local police force. HARIROD GROUP refers to years of experience and provides all physical security installations to house its security personnel and ensure proper control and operation by means of e.g. entry/ road-control-points, fencing, night-site illumination, watch towers and operation centers. Uniform clothing, inventory- and staff- management systems and individualized ID-cards ensure sustainable control and are reliable tools in the hands of the HARIROD GROUP security authorities to minimize a threat of theft or insider attacks. Embedded police force and/ or private security companies prevent unauthorized access to the site, monitor incoming vehicles, and safeguard the site in order to prevent catastrophic impacts on assets, installations and staff. Focus also lies on safeguarding convoys and goods on their way to the site. Road security will be provided as required and implemented by HARIROD GRUOP´s transport managers that can rely on an effective, Afghanistan-wide network of security contacts. Additionally the route and actual location of the cargo can be monitored throughout the entire country by means of a GPS tracking system.
