Picture of Ibrahim Öcel, Scholar of 2014Location: Kirklareli, Turkey

Years with Securitas: Site security manager since October 2012 

My current role: I am responsible for security and emergency response at a pharmaceutical manufacturing site.

Topic studied and where: Fire prevention and firefighting methods in
Malmö and Stockholm in Sweden

Why did you apply for the Scholarship? 

When I joined Securitas my Area Manager told me about the Melker Schörling Scholarship. I set it as a target to win the scholarship because I wanted to learn about fire responding and different fire prevention skills and practices in other countries. 

What did you learn/gain from the study visit?

The scholarship study visit added international experience to my professional career. I learned a lot about good fire prevention applications in Sweden from Securitas Fire & Rescue department.

In my daily work I try to come up with new solutions to match the demand but sometimes these solutions stay a theory. During my study visit I got the opportunity to put theory into practice and also to share best practices at Securitas’ Swedish customer sites. 

How will you share this knowledge/ experience within your organization?

I gave a presentation in Securitas Turkey on what I had learned about fire prevention and firefighting methods during my study visit. If the fire preventive methods are implemented in my organization then our services will be even more effective and efficient.  The scholarship was a once in a lifetime opportunity and the experience will stay with me for a long time going forward.
