Top Tips For Improving School Safety and Security

School Safety-ssp

School Security and safety is a top priority for any school administrator. Campuses today face many security challenges and serious threats. Today we must anticipate danger and avert it at the perimeter to keep our students safe. The Partner for Safer Schools (PASS) is a non-profit group of law enforcement, education, and industry experts who work together to develop policies, procedures, and recommendations to improve school safety and security.

PASS recommends that schools use these best practices to implement a layered or tiered approach to school safety and security. The layered approach uses successive obstacles that will deter, detect, or delay adversarial behaviors. 

Here are some of the most beneficial technologies and practices:

  • Implementing a secured, gated, perimeter
  • The use of video surveillance at the perimeter, on grounds, and indoors
  • Use telephone/intercom and access control entry at critical doors/entry points
  • The use of integrated security, including fire, access control, and Intrusion detection
  • Implement a mass notification and public address system
  • Law enforcement, school, and district-wide communication
  • The use of duress button systems in offices and classrooms

The more security measures a school implements, the greater the level of security. Schools, however, must still have a comprehensive plan for supporting an all-hazards response to threats. To do this, PASS recommends schools develop an emergency response team. This team should receive comprehensive training on how to respond during an emergency situation.

Is Your Food Processing/Manufacturing Plant Secure?

Manufacturing-ssp

Food processing and manufacturing is a complex industry with many safety and security concerns. Today, plant security isn’t just about protecting your employees from harm and your products from theft, it is a complex and interconnected system that ensures the safety of people, product, and processes from threats, spoilage, or contamination; improves productivity and more.

Every manufacturer, regardless of size, shares some serious challenges ranging from accidents to mal-intent and bioterrorism. Here are just a few of the top concerns. 

  • Accident
  • Theft
  • Unsafe/improper food handling
  • Tampering
  • Spoilage
  • Downed processes
  • Bioterrorism
  • And more

All manufacturing plants face strict regulations. Food processing plants also have a special consideration, the Food Safety Modernization Act. Introduced after 9/11, the FSMA was the first time in the history of food legislation where the concept of food defense was introduced. Food defense is defined as measures to protect food from deliberate tampering from criminal or terrorist sources. This act shifts the focus from responding to foodborne illness to preventing it. Not surprisingly, the act involves many physical security system recommendations and regulations. 

Improving Security at Your Manufacturing Plant

While security measures must be unique to meet the needs of each specific facility, here are just a few important recommendations to consider. 

  • Have your risks evaluated by professionals
  • Start security at the perimeter with adequate fencing
  • Use gate/phone/intercom access
  • Use access control to control and monitor movement inside the facility
  • Employ monitored video surveillance 
  • Install a comprehensive security system that includes intrusion detection
  • Use a mass communication system for swift emergency communication
  • Professional alarm system monitoring

At SSP, we understand the needs of the manufacturing industry. We’ve dedicated ourselves to meeting those needs with ahead of trend technologies that keep your people, processes, and product safe. Call us today to secure your facility confidently. 1-888-540-0175

3 Ways to Improve Commercial Physical Security

commercial-Security-ssp
Whether you own an SMB or a larger corporation, physical security is always a top concern. Businesses contain many important assets, employees, products, information, and more all needing adequate protection from changing security threats.

Luckily, security technologies continue to evolve at a tremendous rate and companies of any size can employ a wide range of solutions to meet current and future physical security needs. We at SSP have been securing businesses for years and have seen the incredible value physical systems add to businesses throughout Georgia and beyond. 

Here are the top physical security system solutions adding value to businesses today.

Video Surveillance

When most people think of security, video surveillance is probably one of the first things that come to mind. However, what they may not know is that video surveillance has moved from legacy analog systems to High-definition, IP cameras and offering advanced features such as video analytics. Improved security is just one advantage, however. Comprehensive video surveillance security also provides a way to view and monitor operations for improved processes, and more. 

Access Control

Prior to access control, the only way to monitor access to a property was using security guards. This, of course, was costly and not as effective as it could be. Access control fills security gaps by requiring proper credentials before gaining access to protected properties or areas without the need for guards at every point. In addition to providing restricted access, access control also provides increased awareness of what areas are accessed, when, and by whom. 

Intrusion Detection

Usually applied at the perimeter of a property or building. Intrusion detection, as the name implies, detects intrusion to secured areas. The technologies backing these systems today are more sensitive, powerful, advanced, and affordable than ever is one of the most important solutions used to protect businesses today. 

If you own a business, SSP can help you maximize your security budget in a way that improves security and adds real value to your business. Call SSP today for more information! 1-888-540-0175
