COSEM and AETOS have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to offer industry-first integrated safety and security capabilities, including consultancy services and customized WSQ training for frontline personnel in both safety and security operations.
Through this partnership, COSEM and AETOS will collaborate on three key areas:
1. Provide joint Safety & Security consultancy services both locally and abroad,
2. Develop customised WSQ training packages that equip frontline personnel with both safety and security competencies, and
3. Establish a common framework and guidelines for trained personnel to adhere to during crises and emergencies.
Said Mr. Ng Chee Kiang, Chief Executive Officer of COSEM Safety & Security Services, “We are looking forward to this partnership, which leverages the strengths of COSEM and AETOS in a collective manner. Apart from cost-saving benefits for our clients, we strongly believe that this partnership will help raise our clients’ overall state of emergency readiness and response from a safety and security perspective.”
Said Mr. Alfred Fox, Chief Executive Officer of AETOS, “We are pleased to embark on this strategic collaboration with COSEM. Their capabilities in safety will take AETOS’ integrated services to another level, complementing both our proven security track record and best-in-class managed services capabilities from our parent company, Surbana Jurong. By leveraging this collective expertise, AETOS can now unlock greater value for our clients through an expanded suite of integrated service offerings consisting of safety, security, and facilities management, among others. Backed by best-in-class technology partners, we see this as the future for integrated value-creation.”
Working closely with COSEM, AETOS is set on becoming the first integrated service provider to offer end-to-end fire safety inspections, enforcement, and monitoring services. These services will not be solely manpower-based, but also focused on cost-effective systems-level enterprise solutions which will help reduce manpower and bring added value to their clients and partners.
“COSEM and AETOS are committed to equipping our people with the relevant skillsets. While innovative technologies are often harnessed to achieve greater productivity, we believe that our people ultimately make the critical difference in our operations. By broadening their expertise, knowledge, and real-time decision-making in safety, security, and facilities management, we enable our clients to better achieve their desired business outcomes,” added Mr. Fox and Mr. Ng.
COSEM and AETOS will co-develop the training programme by Q1 2020.
