Security Vulnerability Analysis
Our proprietary Workplace Violence Vulnerability Assessment™ (WVVA) helps you address your Duty of Care and includes an identification of potential threats your organization may face based on the four recognized categories of violence, assessment of facility vulnerabilities, access controls, physical security, incident management, emergency response and review of related policies and procedures.
The assessment methodology is based on concepts and strategies drawn from your organization’s unique requirements, our “real world” experience helping a broad range of organizations manage their security programs, including recovering from incidents of extreme violence and the following standards and guidelines. We incorporate elements from each of these standards and guidelines into a single assessment model to help create a roadmap for protecting your organization.
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.
