G4S International Standards

G4S Bahrain is globally certified across multiple operational and management disciplines.

G4S is the leading global, integrated security company, specialising in the provision of security services and solutions to customers. Its mission is to create material, sustainable value for customers and shareholders by being the supply partner of choice in all its markets. G4S is quoted on the London Stock Exchange and has a secondary stock exchange listing in Copenhagen. The company is active in around 90 countries and has more than 540,000 employees. 

G4S Bahrain has been operating on the island since 1993 with more than 600 employees. It provides top-of-the-line integrated security solutions which include manned security services; event security; emergency response; cash, valuables and ATM management; Cash360 Deposita machines; electronic security systems; and security consultancy services. 

The company has achieved the ISO 14001:2015 certification, an international standard for Environmental Management System (EMS). Certification was awarded after a comprehensive set of audits conducted by a reputable certifying body.

The group’s approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR) is firmly embedded in its business processes, and the EMS provides an extensive framework of environmental responsibilities which support the CSR strategy. To meet the EMS framework, the G4S Bahrain team is committed to continually enhance its quality, health, safety and environment performances, to protect the environment, to prevent pollution and to strive to prevent injury to employees and other interested parties within its control – a key priority for G4S. 

The ISO 14001 certification followed the successful recertification of ISO 9001:2015 for Quality Management System (QMS) and OHSAS 18001:2007 for Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS), demonstrating the business’ ability to consistently provide quality products and services that meet customer regulatory requirements as well as ensure the health and safety of employees.

“We are pleased to achieve the esteemed ISO 14001:2015 certification as well as be recertified in ISO 9001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 international standards. This demonstrates our commitment to continually improve our services and create a sustainable business to protect and preserve our environment. In regard to the health and safety of our employees, our goal is zero harm as we are passionate about safety, security and service excellence. This means we will prioritise safety management to protect the health and well-being of our colleagues and those around us,” says Sumaira Yasmin, managing director, G4S Bahrain.

“Many thanks to the commitment and hard work of the entire team.” 

In addition to its recent achievement, the company has been granted an extension of the official manpower limit from 500 to 750 guards, which means G4S can hire more guards and secure more customer properties. Furthermore, it is in the process of opening up a new facilities management, manpower recruitment service and new guarding company within the year, thus ensuring business growth and maintaining its reputation as one of the most recognised private security companies in Bahrain setting the standard for quality and performance.
