Site Security Classes

A site security plan is necessary for organizations where criminal acts may occur. Whether it’s a pre-planned criminal act by an employee, a heated encounter between visitors, or a terrorist attack, site security ensures that people and equipment can stay safe until the dangers have been removed from the premises. These plans establish as many protocols as possible before an event happens. Its precautions not only take into account the structure of the facilities and the grounds, but also the individual likelihood of different threats befalling the site.
