^ As expected G4S will review their policies and procedures:

Security company probing Edmonton shooting with eye on improved safety

“In addition to the police investigation, we have flown out our own security experts as part of G4S internal investigation,” said Mr. Tallion.

“This is standard practice for any major incident. We do all review aspects to determine if there’s lessons to be learned and if there is, we will implement these changes as we go forward.”

Mr. Tallion did not take questions about what issues internal auditors would address or what recommendations could result in light of the attack, which occurred while G4S workers were refilling bank machines just after midnight Friday morning during a stop on the main university campus.

However, the union that represents the G4S security guards, as well as others in the industry in Alberta, suggested that more in-depth psychological analysis might be necessary to help weed out potentially dangerous employees.

Richard Eichel, the Calgary-based secretary, treasurer and principal officer for Teamsters Local 362, which represents the G4S workers across the Prairies, said the union has been fielding calls from across the country about how the workplace can be made safer.

“Do you do more psychological testing?” he said. “How much and how far do you go? Who knows.”
