The strong growth of corporate security combined with the continuation of downsizing and outsourcing has created many opportunities for security consultants and specifying engineers. This is beyond the traditional uses of these professionals in new construction and renovation design.

Also impacting the area: the growth of specialty areas of security (ranging from healthcare and college to cargo) as well as the strong growth of computer security, intellectual property theft and financial frauds more broadly.

Safety Planning Disk

UpWord Publishing, Inc. has announced the Safety, Emergency Response & Hazard Communication Planning Program (SEHP): Sample Plans on Disk. SEHP provides a sample written safety plan, emergency response plan and hazard communication plan to assist facility managers, asset managers, risk managers, consultants and other professionals in developing their own customized site-specific written plans. Each plan is presented as a stand-alone component but can be easily combined into a master written safety plan if desired. In addition, a sample safety policy mission statement, sample rules of conduct for employee discipline, and OSHA-developed self-inspection checklists are provided. Each of the sample plans was developed based on current OSHA guidelines established in January 1989. A properly customized, properly implemented written safety plan is a valuable asset to companies and institutions. A written safety plan 1. establishes a blueprint for safety and health initiaties; 2. allows managers to identify and eliminate workplace hazards; 3. demonstrates good-faith efforts in meeting safety and health responsibilities; 4. provides a framework for employer and employees together to work toward the common goal of safety; and 5. provides the ability to coordinate business policies and procedures with industry standards and practices as well as governmental regulations.

Benefits include a safer workplace, reduced liability, regulatory compliance and demonstration of compliance with the spirit of the law, which may help in a court of law. In addition, under OSHA's current penalty structure, a company with a written safety and health plan that demonstrates commitment and involvement by all personnel is entitled to receive a 25% reduction in any penalties that are assessed. Finally, a written safety plan provides an infrastructure to absorb and implement new regulations and laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act.
