New counter-terrorism advice for FM professionals

A new guidance note to help facilities management professionals evaluate the risks to their buildings from terrorism and decide what they should do about them has been published by BIFM.

Produced in partnership with the UK Security Expo, which this year focused on the impact of the prolonged terror threat to businesses, the guidance, ‘Counter Terrorism advice for FM’, introduces FM professionals to key parts of terrorists’ thinking and includes a security audit checklist.

Peter Brogan, Research and Information Manager, said:

“This guidance is an extremely important addition to our suite of knowledge resources to support facilities management professionals with their business continuity and disaster recovery plans. With counter terrorism being such a vital issue that is high on the agenda for many FMs, this resource offers expert advice to FM professionals who may need to deal with the evolving threats from terrorism to the UK.”

Chris Phillips, Managing Director, Ippso ltd said:

“Facilities management plays a key role in keeping people safe. This includes protection against terrorist attacks and it is brilliant that BIFM is helping FM professionals to get organised and be better informed. I urge all FM professionals to take a little time, read this advice and do their bit to keep our country, employees, customers and the public safe.”
