Threat & Vulnerability Assessments Active threats, workplace stability, hazardous material spills, and even severe weather events are just some of the issues crowding today’s headlines. While some are preventable, some are not. However, identifying the vulnerabilities that may affect a facility, then taking necessary steps to mitigate them, can provide your employees or contractors with a safe, secure, and productive environment. We provide security and vulnerability assessments to help organizations evaluate preventive measures already in place and provide recommendations for enhancing them with improvements at both the facility and organisational levels. Our assessments are personally developed to address your unique concerns and needs. They are designed to help your organisation be proactive, not reactive, in improving the overall safety and security of your facilities and employees, all while maintaining regard to your organisation’s specific sensitivities. Our assessment findings are designed to be used as risk-management and strategic planning tools to help you determine the most appropriate actions and resources needed. They are never a criticism of an organisation’s competency or credibility and reflect not only areas for continued planning and improvement, but positive safety and security measures already in place. Emergency Response Planning -Are you Ready? Emergency Planning Emergency plans provide your staff with the information needed to effectively respond when. not if, an incident occurs. The ability to assess a situation, and make immediate decisions, is crucial to quickly mitigate any emergency. Understanding the concepts behind the response can alleviate the stress that clouds judgment and causes the inability to respond. Organisation-wide operations plans establish a consistent approach, throughout your company, to ensure all your employees and locations follow consistent guidelines and policies that meet your overall intent. They are then supplemented by facility-specific response plans, customised by location, that provides staff with key emergency information, such as procedures and protocols, contact information, maps and floor plans, when they need it most. Developing emergency plans not only creates the opportunity to provide guidance and direction to your staff, but it can also reveal potential deficiencies in resources and training that can be remedied before an emergency occurs. Overall, emergency planning promotes a confident, proactive stance to preparedness that will positively affect your organisation’s overall environment. Not having emergency plans in place can not only lead to an ineffective, chaotic response that results in unnecessary injuries, loss of resources, or worse, it can lead to legal issues for not preparing your organisation. Either of which can severely impact your organisation.
