Building Safety Training

 

building-safetyDuring this course participants will learn how to understand the threats and risks to buildings, facilities and the people within them and gain an appreciation of the techniques and solutions for physical protection. The use of architecture, engineering, people and technology to deter attacks on buildings, critical infrastructure and public areas, or to mitigate the effects of an attack successfully carried out, will help students understand risk and threat analysis methodologies and the benefits of an empirical study of the physical security of a facility. This holistic approach to Physical Security will provide a review of the procedures and techniques for balancing the need for security guard deployment with the physical security of the building, with a particular emphasis on suicide terror, VBIEDs, explosives in general and attacks involving automatic weapons. Extensive use of case studies will enable the appreciation of these concepts through real world examples and innovative cost effective solutions will be presented to typical security challenges.

Audience: First Responders, Security Officers, Facility Managers and Managers with Security Responsibility

Objective:To understand the threats and risks to buildings, facilities and the people within them and to gain an appreciation of the techniques and solutions for physical protection.

Length: 2 days

This seminar is focused on the use of architecture, engineering, people and technology to deter attacks on buildings, critical infrastructure and public areas, or to mitigate the effects of an attack successfully carried out. The tools and techniques learned during the 2 days can help save lives and protect assets.

Too often, decisions are made on where to allocate financial or human resources based on separate analyses of buildings, people and technology. These decisions are typically made without a clear understanding of the vulnerabilities of the buildings and facilities and without offering clear definitions of the expectations from the protection.

This 2 day course provides a detailed review of typical threats to buildings, compounds and other facilities and how they affect your assessment and operational methods. It will provide tools and methodologies for understanding threats and risks, identifying vulnerabilities and taking a holistic approach to security by building an integrated view of the physical, technological and human aspects of security.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Appreciate typical threats and their risks to people and property.
  • Learn about how various threats affect people and property based on case studies of actual attacks.
  • Familiarize yourself with the phenomenon of suicide bombers and the use of explosives in an attack.
  • Understand the risk and threat analysis methodology and the benefits of an empirical study of the physical security of a facility.
  • Understand how to apply the methodology to buildings, critical infrastructure, ports, public transport and other facilities/compounds.
  • Gain an overview of common physical and technological methods of protection and understand their role in deterrence, detection, and mitigation.
  • Determine and prioritize your security needs and align them with the perceived threats and the available budget.

Extensive use of case studies will enable the appreciation of these concepts through real world examples. Innovative cost effective solutions to typical security challenges will be presented.

Day 1 - Threats and Risks
Introduction-Opening Session  
Threats and Risks A review of typical threats (explosives, weapons and their utilization) to buildings/compounds and the impact they have on assets. The risks (consequences) resulting from a terrorist attack will be introduced with an emphasis on blast.
Anatomy of an Explosion The physics and effects of an explosion on buildings, windows and humans.
Case Studies 3 Car bomb incidents of different natures
Suicide Bombers Case studies of actual suicide bomber attacks
Suicide Bombers The threats and practiced methods to cope with the phenomenon of suicide bombers.
Firearms Attacks Case studies of various incidents form recent years involving shootings in educational centers analyzing the reasons for the different outcomes

 

Day 2 - Threat and Risk Analysis and Protection Solutions

Summary of Previous Day  
Holistic Approach to Physical Security The Human, Technology and Structural domains are introduced together with a methodology for identifying vulnerabilities.
Threat and Risk Analysis An introduction to the methodology of Threat and Risk Analysis and Red Teaming. Examples from a variety of facilities will be presented (infrastructure, public transport, etc.)
Rings of Security Perimeters, Yards and Buildings as concentric rings of physical security and the common application of the concept to different types of facilities.
Building Domain - Products An introduction to the myriad products available on the market for physical protection including barriers, fences, windows, and doors.
Technology Domain The threats and practiced methods to cope with the phenomenon of suicide bombers.
Firearms Attacks A description of security technology and common problems in its deployment and operation.
Human Domain A review of the procedures and techniques for balancing the need for security guard deployment with the physical security of the building, with a particular emphasis on suicide bombers.
Prioritization Identifying priorities in a physical protection program.
Physical Protection Projects Examples of physical protection projects for new buildings and for retrofit projects. Includes a case study of a recent attack on a protected building in Israel.
Final Exam A threat and risk analysis exercise

Testimonials

Dear SSI™,

I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that I really liked the class and especially the table top exercise you provided. The exercise was very informative and useful. I liked seeing the detailed incidents and evaluations that were very in depth. I certainly realize time is limited but it would be nice if we had extra time to go into some of the material a little deeper. All in all it was great and thank you.

SSI™ Team,

This is a good course for private security and facilities alike. I think it would be an excellent course for someone seeking to enter the corporate security world after serving in the public sector. The exercise was an eye opener; it was a great way to demonstrate practical uses of the material learned throughout the program. Overall I thought the training was very good and was very informative. The presenter was an excellent teacher; his mixture of education and real life real world experience made all the difference.

Case Study

A major city in the USA that is proud of its national league baseball franchise, hockey games and at least three major public venues was concerned after the Times Square bomber attempted to set off a devastating bomb in New York City. Realizing the threat to the City if a major public venue were attacked, the City looked for a program that would increase cooperation between the private sector owners of buildings and venues and the members of the terrorism early warning group.

The SSI™ building safety program incorporates the best of practical know-how by presenters who have advised on building safety after such incidents as the Nigerian Embassy bombing where they made detailed research in the aftermath. In addition, their experience with many international and Israeli incidents gives them real hands-on know-how, which is unbeatable in the real threat environment.

Going well beyond CPTED into technologies used and the holistic method of security planning, the program incorporates many practical exercises to accompany the considerable lesson plan. This gave members of the City’s venues the chance to sit with colleagues from City law enforcement, fire and rescue and even medical personnel. All contributed to the general improvement that was achieved in awareness, design and implementation of security policies and the implications of some of these policies. All agreed the program achieved its dual objectives: making professionals more aware of building safety and security engineering and having private and public sector drill and work together – invaluable in a real scenario.
