As the rulemaking process evolves, those accountable for chemical and petrochemical facility security can turn to ASSL for assistance with:

  • Conducting and updating Site Vulnerability Assessments
  • Developing and implementing comprehensive security plans.
  • Ensuring the overall effectiveness of physical security measures.

Where we provide security officers at companies in the energy sector our stated mission at these facilities is as follows:

“Security Officers are responsible for providing, maintaining and performing all necessary security functions in accordance with the Energy Services Security Program. This includes protecting energy facilities against sabotage of equipment and theft of materials, controlling access, determining the extent of the threatening situations, assessing the extent of such threats, summoning reinforcements and exerting force to prevent or delay malicious acts.”

We recognize the importance that Occupational Health and Safety plays in today’s workplace, not only for employees of the customer but also for our employees working on customer sites. As a result part of our induction training for all security officers focuses on Occupational Safety and Health and in the preparation of Assignment Instructions safety and health issues are addressed.

Facilities in the energy sector usually involve perimeter protection an access control through the use of hardened portal access control stations, patrols (vehicle and foot), surveillance from alarm stations, armed response to and assessment of alarms, and engagement of adversaries under deadly force authorities and constraints. Our electronic security division has implemented security systems at many of the petrochemical facilities in Trinidad.


Amalgamated Security Services Limited (ASSL) received triple world class certification on 26th February, 2019. ASSL successfully completed Stage 1 and 2 audits conducted by MSS Global.

ASSL integrated the principles promoted by ISO 9001:2015, ISO 18788:2015 and ANSI/ASIS PSC-1:2012 within the company’s operations which included its eight (8) business units; Guard Service, Electronic Security & Integrated Systems, Prisoner Transport Division, Archangel Ambulance, Firearms and Cash Management, Central Monitoring Station, Investigative Unit and Geospatial Technology Division.

What is ISO 9001, ISO 18788 and ANSI/ASIS PSC-1?


ISO 9001 is defined as the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organizations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.

ISO 18788:2015 provides a framework for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving the management of security operations. It provides the principles and requirements for a security operations management system (SOMS). ISO 18788:2015 provides a business and risk management framework for organizations conducting or contracting security operations and related activities and functions while demonstrating:

  1. conduct of professional security operations to meet the requirements of clients and other stakeholders;
  2. accountability to law and respect for human rights;
  3. consistency with voluntary commitments to which it subscribes.

ANSI/ASIS PSC.1-2012. is a management standard for quality of private security company operations. The standard seeks to operationalise the International Code of Conduct (ICoC) within a formal structure familiar to businesses. That structure, with national and international supervision, provides auditable procedures for the development of the standard, certification to it, and monitoring of ongoing compliance. It incorporates elements of the Montreux Document.


Amalgamated Security Services Limited received STOW Re-Certification on 27th January, 2019. STOW certifies the integration of HSE Management Systems throughout an organization. Improved HSE governance results in a reduction of incidents, accidents and downtime and optimizes overall efficiency in business operations.

Our electronic security division has implemented security systems at many of the manufacturing facilities in Trinidad.

While the primary concern of a manufacturing facility will be the products that it manufactures, it also has a concern for the security of its information infrastructure. Information security  requires ensuring information is only read and used by people who have the right to do so and since many businesses are critically reliant on their information systems for key business processes Information Systems need to be secure if they are to be reliable. We work with companies to help them ensure that their information systems are secure.
