Security Management for Occupational Safety

How far would or should you go to feel secure? While everyone wants safety and security, the measures to achieve it are often viewed of as intrusive, unwanted, a hassle, and limiting to personal and professional freedoms. Yet, when an incident occurs, we can never have enough security. Security Management for Occupational Safety provides a framework through which occupational safety practitioners can critically examine their organizational environments and make them safer while assuming a best possible relationship between obtrusion and necessity. This book examines the diverse factors involved in occupational management—planning, people, budget, information, and preparedness—to present an accurately balanced picture of safety functions. It uses a critical thinking approach to interpreting data as a tool for providing more effective occupational safety management. The book discusses core security management competencies of planning, organizing, staffing, and leading while providing a process to critically analyze those functions. It stresses the benefits of using a methodical critical thinking process in building a comprehensive safety management system, addressing information security, cyber security, energy-sector security, chemical security, and general security management utilizing a critical thinking framework. The author doesn’t focus on how to secure, guard, or protect. While there are commonalities in many aspects of occupational risks and hazards, all are going to be unique. Instead, he guides you through each stage of critical thinking, emphasizing the ability to articulate the differing aspects of business and security management by reasoning through complex problems in the changing organizational landscape. The book not only provides fundamental concepts in security but it also creates informed, critical, and creative security managers who communicate effectively in their environment and make informed well-thought-out judgments to tailor a security program to fit a specific organization.

However, if we need security, we often feel as if we can never have enough.

It stresses the benefits of using a methodical critical thinking process in building a comprehensive safety management system. The book provides a mechanism that enables readers to think clearly and critically about the process of security management, emphasizing the ability to articulate the differing aspects of business and security management by reasoning through complex problems in the changing organizational landscape. The authors elucidate the core security management competencies of planning, organizing, staffing, and leading while providing a process to critically analyze those functions. They specifically address information security, cyber security, energy-sector security, chemical security, and general security management utilizing a critical thinking framework.

Security Management for Healthcare

The healthcare industry is changing daily. With the advent of the Affordable Care Act and now the changes being made by the current administration, the financial outlook for healthcare is uncertain. Along with natural disasters, new diseases, and ransomware new challenges have developed for the healthcare security professional. One of the top security issues effecting hospitals today is workplace violence. People don’t usually act violently out of the blue. There are warning signs that can be missed or don’t get reported or, if they are reported, they may not be properly assessed and acted upon. Healthcare facilities need to have policies and procedures that require reporting of threatening or unusual behaviors. Having preventive policies and procedures in place is the first step in mitigating violence and providing a safe and security hospital. Persons working in the healthcare security field need to have information and tools that will allow them to work effectively within the healthcare climate. This holds true for security as well. Security professionals need to understand their risks and work to effectively mitigate threats. The author describes training techniques that can be accomplished within a limited budget. He explains how to manage staff more efficiently in order to save money and implement strategic plans to help acquire resources within a restricted revenue environment. Processes to manage emergent events, provide risk assessments, evaluate technology and understand information technology. The future of healthcare is uncertain, but proactive prevention and effective resolution provide the resources necessary to meet the challenges of the current and future healthcare security environment.

Loss Control Auditing

As a critical function in monitoring workplace safety, loss control auditing provides an organizational assessment of safety program performance in relation to regulatory requirements and company policies. Principles of quality management dictate that measurement of an activity receives organizational attention and provides an excellent tool for communicating performance to management. A comprehensive audit, rather than individual metrics such as injury rate, helps to determine which aspects of a safety program are functioning well and which ones have room for improvement. Loss Control Auditing: A Guide for Conducting Fire, Safety, and Security Audits is a one-stop resource for both developing and executing a loss control audit program. Written for professionals in the fire service, loss prevention, and safety management as well as those studying the fields, this reference addresses loss control auditing from the perspectives of workplace safety, physical security, and fire risks. The text focuses on the three core areas of an audit: documentation review, physical inspection, and employee interviews. It also presents a three-phase model—pre-audit, audit, and post audit activities—which can be used for all three core areas. It includes detailed information to assist in the development of an effective audit program. The author discusses the foundational elements of an audit program, the written audit program and the audit protocol. Systemic auditing issues of audit scoring, auditor selection and training, audit logistics, and audit frequency are also addressed. The final section of the book discusses the opportunities that can arise in conducting an audit, including how an audit can be used as a training tool and the importance of involving employees in the audit process. The application of the information presented in this volume is facilitated by representative case studies included at the end of each chapter. An up-to-date reference, this text is unique in the depth of material presented and provides an excellent resource on how to develop and execute a loss control audit program.
