Security Risk Management

Facility Vulnerability Assessments 

Our vulnerability assessment includes an evaluation of physical security, access controls, incident management/response programs, review of related policies and procedures and threats your organization may face (crime, high risk activities, etc.). The assessment also identifies areas of your organization's prevention programs that are working well.  We then provide a detailed narrative report including recommendations specific to your organization.

The assessment methodology is based on concepts and strategies drawn largely from the following standards and guidelines. Applying our industry experience and background we use themes from each of these standards and guidelines and incorporate them into a usable assessment format as each one has it strengths and weakness.

  • American National Standard ASIS/SHRM WPVI.1-2011 – Workplace violence prevention and intervention. 
  • Section 5(a)(1) of the OSHA Act, referred to as the “General Duty Clause” which requires that employers “furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.”
  • Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, or CPTED is the proper design and effective use of a built environment, which can lead to a reduction in the fear and incidence of crime.
  • NFPA 730 (2011): Guide for Premises Security
  • FEMA -  Guide to mitigating potential terrorist attacks against buildings

  • Emergency Preparedness/Response

Workplace Violence Prevention Programs

We help your organization develop prevention policies and procedures that are simple, effective and more importantly sustainable.  As a foundation, we use the American National Standard ASIS/SHRM WPVI.1-2011 Workplace Violence Prevention and Intervention, OSHA Guidelines, Best Practices and our “real world” experience helping organizations recover from incidents of extreme violence.  Violence prevention programs should be customized to fit your organizations specific needs, however there are some common elements;

  • Senior leadership commitment AND involvement
  • Comprehensive background checks
  • Conduct annual assessments of the workplace
  • Implement and maintain a Violence Prevention Policy
  • Implement and maintain a Substance Abuse Policy
  • Investigate all complaints/threats of violence
  • Maintain a strong relationship with local law enforcement
  • Establish a resource for understanding related state laws
  • Establish a multi-disciplinary team for responding to threats of violence and reviewing and monitoring effectiveness of related policies
  • Train staff on workplace violence prevention, management and response

Remember, it is not enough to just write a violence prevention policy. An effective program constantly evolves and always improves. You should ensure that program updates, drills and training occur on a regular basis.
