What does the course cover?

• COVID-19

Infection Prevention and Control is a practical solution, based on a scientific approach, to prevent the harm caused by infection to both patients and health workers. Infections and infectious diseases are a major cause of illness and death. Infectious diseases can spread. As with all illnesses, prevention is better than cure.

I don’t work for McKenzie Arnold. Can I still take the course?

Yes, of course! This course is aimed at any employee or manager working within an environment where there is risk of infection. The course may be particularly useful for healthcare professionals and adult care workers, as well as apprentices. The course can be used as a stand-alone module or as part of an induction programme.

How much does the course cost?

The course costs £15.00 per person.

Business as usual: Covid-19 update

The health and safety of our staff and clients is of paramount importance to us. As such, we have been following the advice given by the Government and the NHS to ensure that we minimise the impact of COVID-19. Some of the new measures we have already implemented include asking that all our office members work from home. Due to the nature of our business, we have also made all of our company vehicles available to transport our team members to jobs where their presence is still required, which will help in the avoidance of use of public transportation and crowded spaces.

For us here at McKenzie Arnold, it is business as usual. Despite most of our clients being part of the events and sports industries, most of them have simply postponed their events, whilst others changed the nature in which they deliver their events (e.g.: by closing doors to the public and allowing broadcasting only).

On that note, if there is anyone that needs our services or extra help with filling in the gaps where there are shortages get in touch! We have skilled team members available for security, manned guarding, transportation, crowd management, etc.

Speak to our team today - hello@mckenziearnold.com or call us on 01376 350999.

If anything positive has come of this pandemic, is that people and businesses have shown an incredible willingness to support each other all across the world, hopefully a spirit that will carry on long after the dust has settled.

With all the best wishes,

The McKenzie Arnold Group


We have done it again!

We are thrilled to announce our successful renewal of our Approved Contractor status with the Security Industry Authority for Manned Guarding and Door Supervision.

This the third year in a row that we, the McKenzie Arnold Group (MAG), have proudly achieved this status. As Mike Jackson, the Managing Director of MAG, has previsouly stated, this achievement is 'testament to the quality of work' that the team completed year upon year.


New Year, same great us!

Happy belated New Year to all our readers!

2019 was, to put in a few words, one of our busiest and most successful years to date. We successfully completed jobs for some of our oldest clients, such as Notting Hill Carnival and Brands Hatch; built up some new relationships with exciting companies and events (coming up in 2020); and to keep up with all this extra work coming our way, we grew our team here at the head office too!

The new year saw the MAG team start with a bang, with us having received our ISO 9002 Certificate.

What is this certificate I hear you ask? It’s basically a way of ensuring that we keep a high level of quality in all functions concerning the delivery of our services to our clients.

This is a huge opportunity for us to show ourselves off to everyone, and something we are very happy to shout out about, because we care so deeply about the quality of our services and overall satisfaction of everyone we work with.


Busy year in 2018 at Donington Park

With the news that Donington Park has been taken over by the MSV group we have already seen some huge investments already including a new tarmac surface in the paddock. MAG is delighted to be associated with the MSV group and to continue its 15 year relationship with the Donington Park Circuit.

The calendar for 2018 already looks busier than 2017, with the British Superbike Championship, British Touring Cars and World Superbikes Championship already solidly penned into the Diary.

If you want to join our teams at Donington please contact us at recruitment@mckenziearnold.com and clearly mark it DONINGTON.
