In just moments, fire can irrevocably destroy lives and cost millions in property damage. This is especially true in the manufacturing industry where an abundance of materials and processes create a volatile environment.
Understanding this, fire codes were put in place to help prevent the dangerous conditions that can lead to disaster. Ignoring these codes will not only put Atlanta manufactures at risk, but it can also lead to code violations and costly fines.
If you have been putting off disaster preparedness, now is the time to swing into action. According to research conducted by the University of Colorado in Boulder, things like flood and fire preparations and prevention can save lives and money– as much as $11 for every $1 initially invested according to the report. Natural hazard mitigation saves. In Security Magazine, Keith Porter, a research professor in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering said. “Mitigation can be a costly decision, but this study should help people to make a more informed choice about how to save their property and their wellbeing.”
A protected educational environment is more important than ever. Today’s climate of rising threats and potential risks makes it critical for school officials to regularly assess and enhance their school security approach. However, most school districts are faced with improving school safety with a very limited budget and these tight restraints make it difficult to adequately address security issues.
Even when faced with restrictive budget restraints, it is possible to develop a security plan to improve campus safety. Here are just a few ways to boost campus security on a budget.
Commercial facilities have a lot of specific concerns to consider when it comes to physical security. To attain the most effective security, it is important to understand those concerns as well as the technologies to address them.
Today, educational facilities of all types have made physical security a top priority. However, for physical security to be effective, there needs to be a culture of physical security awareness that is embraced by staff and students alike.
Admittedly, physical security technologies are advancing rapidly and it is near impossible to keep up unless you are in the industry. When it concerns safety, though, the more you know the better.
Manufacturing facilities have a lot of specific concerns to consider when it comes to physical security. To attain the most effective security, it is important to understand those concerns as well as the technologies to address them.
How we approach physical security is changing. Where it was once seen as intimidating or invasive, today it is not only accepted, it is an expected part of providing a safe and optimally productive environment. Because of this, facility managers and those charged with security have more freedom to deploy the technologies necessary to keep customers, clients, and staff safe.
