The ExcluSec Group are proud to announce receipt of the Professional Services Award 2018 in the 7th annual UK Heart Safe Awards from the Hand on Heart charity.

ExcluSec were shortlisted for the Professional Services category of the awards and Group Quality and Compliance Director, Michelle Khan, commented: “We’re really proud of the recognition received from these awards. We added defibrillators to our mobile response vehicles back in 2016 and all our mobile response officers are fully trained in emergency first aid and the use of these automated external defibrillators (AEDs). We strive to provide the best possible service to clients at all times, and the availability of AEDs in our vehicles means we have the ability to provide support in emergency cardiac arrest situations. This is the first time we’ve been nominated for a UK Heart Safe award and all the team at ExcluSec is absolutely bowled over by the news that we’ve won.”.
