Security Audits and Assessments


The security profile of any facility is only as effective as the weakest link

Taking proactive measures such as inspections and audits of a premise, safety systems, plans and procedures go a long way to maintaining a secure facility. Completing a Security Risk Assessment will identify:

  • Deficiencies in your security and emergency preparedness plan
  • Opportunities to diminish risk
  • Opportunities to integrate your Emergency Control Organisation (ECO) with your safety and security plan

What’s included in your Risk Assessment?

Physical controls | policy & procedures | surveillance | electronics &technology

Audits are completed by licensed personnel in accordance with the security advisor requirement of each state in Australia. When completing a security risk audit, we take into account the hierarchy of controls where we examine the risk in a layered approach and provide strategies to assist in eliminating the potential risks.

Physical Controls

Review and recommend the suitable perimeter fencing, entry points and lighting system that could assist in identifying and preventing potential risk. We also review the security team and appropriate training the team have in place.

Policy and Procedures

A full review on the emergency management plan and procedures that are in place. Ensuring occupants can easily recognise and appropriately respond to any emergency. Without a clear and appropriate plan, people will not be able to act confidently.

Electronics and Technology

Conduct a review on the detective systems that have been put in place in the facility such as visitor management systems. We review the level of data the system collects along with the management policies and procedures.
