Video: The Vulnerable Building: Strategies to Identifying Risks and Responding to Threats

How to ensure the safety of your building as an owner or manager

The security of your building is top priority for building managers and facility managers. Mass shootings, robberies, vandalism, and assaults are among the threats to the security and safety of those within your facility. It’s vital that leaders take these issues seriously and use risk management and assessment to counteract them.  

In a new segment of Straight Talk!, guest speaker Johnathan Tal shares strategies all building owners and managers need to know right now to make their facilities safer. From schools to hospitals and more, security is a top-of-mind topic that can be challenging to accomplish and even more challenging to redefine as new threats arise.  

Tal is an expert in building risk assessments and determining what it will take to make a building secure against all types of threats, including active shooters. He is the current CEO of TAL Global Corp., an international investigative and risk-consulting firm. With over 300 mass shootings so far this year alone, it makes sense why this threat is so vital for building managers and owners to consider.
