Local and regional authorities offer safety guides and manuals, as do the manufacturers of equipment and machinery. For most industries, it’s fairly straightforward to follow safety rules, and there’s more focus needed on human factors.
It’s helpful to recruit a safety consultant to assist in the implementation of a cohesive team environment. As safety consultants, we can set aside any history and politics that every organization experiences, and focus on the creation of an enabling environment. It’s the company culture that determines whether saftey procedures are adhered to.
Regarding security, there are many different models available, all with advantages and disadvantages. These range from regular ‘muscle and deterrant’ type systems, to high-tech risk mitigation companies. We can offer both, but specialize in the latter. It’s better that your work environment doesnt resemble a prison, and many of the most secure companies are that way due to technology and smart systems.
In general, we see improvements in safety adherance to be suited to a consultative approach, and true security requires leadership.
Over time, your company will require:
- Initial risk assesment and planning of company structures with the view of security.
- Safety and security audits and stress testing.
- Routine equipment checks and staff surveys .
- A determination of which new tactics and technologies can be brought into your existing model in order to stay up to date regarding new risks.
- Emergency systems overhauling and master planning in the event of the discovery of a critical breach or weak point.
Whilst the actual risks vary from industry to industry, the point is clear. There are new threats and vulnerabilities appearing on the landscape. There are varying levels of threat, from inefficient to existential, and plenty of noise.
The process of creating an audit list for each department and process can be a challenge. No-one knows your industry better than you, but its the cross industry ‘unkown knowables’ that you definitely need assistance with.
Then, putting a perfect security team together who can gel and support each other is not an easy task. The main problem is based on knowledge and experience gaps.
To find people with the right skill sets is a challenge. To create a team not only with the right skill sets, but also the best choices for each role is difficult. This is a unique value proposition of S-energy Consultants.
We have such a deep understanding of the safety and security sector, we can pull a specialist team together of not only the right people, but the best of the right people…
We can do the job better and more efficiently because we know the individual staff roles and the way that synergistic teams come together, because we have been part of these teams.
