- PRESS RELEASE
BMMI has launched a state-of-the-art Emergency Preparedness & Response Centre on its premises in Sitra to provide greater measures of security for both its staff and assets. Referred to internally as 'B-Intercept', the purposeof the control room is simple: to provide a centralised and efficient monitoring and risk mitigation centre.
"Through this centre, the plan is to gather intelligence-based information to monitor, command and direct activity to avoid areas of high risk, thereby establishing a new discipline for security management within the organization. The B-Intercept team will be the main point of contact for anything related to HSE, Security & Crisis Management, addressing many functions such as Travel Management, Incident Management, Crisis Management, Contact Database Management, Integrated Facilities Management, CCTV Monitoring, Access Control Management and Security Intelligence - all in one room."
With BMMI constantly growing, the need for a stable security system is needed now more than ever. B-Intercept's fully operational workstation aims to create an environment where employees can feel safe the moment they walk in the office till the moment they leave. Embracing the new world of CCTV protection, all BMMI locations in Bahrain can now be monitored from one place and it is envisaged that this monitoring capability will be extended to encompass the Group's African operations. In addition, travel management tracking can be implemented to provide security for BMMI staff to their point of destination and subsequent return.
The facility includes a crisis management centre, linked to emergency services and embassies, capable of handling all types of emergencies and with future plans to also manage maintenance issues, through centralised utilities management protocols. In terms of health or accident issues the control centre operates as a first point of contact for emergency response or investigation.
"As far as security is concerned, we are working aggressively to upgrade our systems and implement very high safety standards. This is a particularly important infrastructure to support operations across Africa as we operate in areas of volatility and unrest such as Mali and Sudan. The control room is designed as a facility to protect both our people and our assets."
