CTR Secure Services are proud to announce that they have been shortlisted as a finalist in the Outstanding Security Performance Awards, in the category of ‘Outstanding Contract Security Company’. The Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs) recognise and reward companies and individuals across the security sector. The OSPAs are designed to be both independent and inclusive, providing an opportunity for outstanding performers, whether buyers or suppliers, to be recognised and their success to be celebrated. Director, Adrian Kent comments “Entering these awards was important to our company, especially after all the hard work in 2016. Getting through to the final is excellent for the company and our staff, as it clearly shows the progress we have made in recent years. We are also proud of our sister company ‘iSMTA‘ who have also progressed to the final in their category for Outstanding Security Training Initiative.” The criteria for these awards are based on extensive research on key factors that contribute to and characterise outstanding performance. The OSPAs are being set-up in collaboration with security associations and groups across many countries. By researching and standardising the award categories and criteria, the OSPAs scheme provides an opportunity for countries to run their own evidence based OSPAs schemes while maintaining an ability to compete on an international level in the future, ‘World OSPAs’.
