Securewest has long been committed to the development and adoption of security industry standards and international codes of practice. It is a member of ADS, the Security in Complex Environments Group (SCEG) and the United Nations Global Compact.
We support the Human Rights Initiative at Sea (HRAS) in its aims to raise the profile, awareness, implementation and accountability for human rights protections, throughout the maritime industry, especially where they are currently absent and being abused.
Global Human Rights
