GardaWorld is a global risk management and security services company and is the international division of Garda World Security Corporation, the largest privately owned security company in the world. GardaWorld works in complex, high threat and emerging markets, providing risk mitigation services when and where they are needed most. Its team of international security and risk professionals delivers flexible, discreet, avoidance-based security and protective services to secure people, assets and reputation. GardaWorld has operated since 1984 and employs more than 3,000 staff to provide protection, training and crisis response.

In 2013 GardaWorld took the decision to embark on a range of certification programs that included ISO 9001, PSC-1, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 – a considerable challenge that needed a clear focus in order that these business aims could be achieved as efficiently and effectively as possible. GardaWorld turned to Capable People to provide them with the initial gap analysis that would give them this steer. Working with GardaWorld staff at its Dubai head office, and liaising with other staff in the UK office and on the ground in Afghanistan via Skype, we were able to develop the specific and detailed gap analysis and action plan they needed to get them started. 

In 2014 GardaWorld became the first major private security provider to become certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and PSC-1. Capable People has continued to support GardaWorld maintain their certifications by the provision of Internal Auditor and Lead Auditor Training at their Dubai Regional Headquarters.
