HAZEL GOSS MBE, DEVELOPMENT OFFICER AT SECURED BY DESIGN SAID:
On Tuesday 20th September 2022 we had an Awareness Day held at The Safety Letter Box Company in Neath to which I invited Doco’s & CRTA’s from local police forces to attend to learn about one of my Secured by Design member companies and the products they can provide. The day started with classroom work covering all you need to know about mailboxes, standards, fire ratings and SBD products, during the talk products were passed around so they could physically see the products, hold them, and ask any questions about them very interactive with lots of questions for our hosts. Some new areas were covered “Parcel Boxes” hopefully that will gain SBD approval in due course, but it was fascinating how these operate, are designed, and interact with the users offering so much more security I know I was excited with the prospect of these products and so were my colleagues. After lunch provided by our hosts which were yummy, we finished the day with a factory tour looking at how the products are made from the start to the finished product again providing us with so much more information and processes that these products go through.
I had an amazing day as did those that attended all going away with so much more information, knowledge and awareness that can be shared with others – an excellent day, thank you.
