A private security officer's primary duty is the prevention and deterrence of crime. Security personnel enforce company rules and can act to protect lives and property, and they often have a contractual obligation to provide these actions. In addition to basic deterrence, security officers are often trained to perform specialized tasks such as arrest and control (including handcuffing and restraints), operate emergency equipment, perform first aid, CPR, take accurate notes, write detailed reports, and perform other tasks as required by the client they are serving.
Just as with the police profession, training requirements for the private security industry have evolved over time. For many years security guards were poorly chosen and poorly trained (if at all), partly because security guard companies who contracted with clients in private industry were paid very little for their security guard services. For the most part, contracts were awarded to security guard companies through a competition process and the final selection was often made based on cost rather than the experience or professionalism of the security guard company. That changed drastically on September 11, 2001 when radical terrorists attacked the United States. The event moved corporate threat concerns to the top of the priority list for most security guard contracts started being awarded based on professionalism. More money was invested in security so more money became available for training of security guards. The term 'security professional' began to surface and large private security companies like Blackwater, USA began offering training services for the private security industry that approached the level of training provided by the military. Security guard companies began paying enough to attract people with significant backgrounds in law enforcement and the military, often in special operations.
Maintenance of Security Equipment Course
Proper maintenance of security systems and regular testing by security personnel is critical for the reliable operation of all levels of the protection systems of a facility.
Emergency Response Plan Course
Security Personnel Emergency Response: OSHA and its State Plan partners help set and implement na<onal safety and health standards for emergency responders. Foremost among these standards is the Hazardous Waste Opera<ons and Emergency Response standard of 29 CFR 1910.120(q).
Healthcare Facilites Part 1 Sensitive Areas Course
Security designed for the healthcare facility presents a unique challenge. It is considered a specialized area of the industry. The main threats in a healthcare environment are insider/employee theft, outsider/visitor theft, threats against patients or staff, and crimes of opportunity.
Workplace Violence Course
Workplace violence is any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other threatening disruptive behavior that occurs at the work site. It ranges from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and even homicide. It can affect and involve employees, clients, customers and visitors. Homicide is currently the fourth-leading cause of fatal occupational injuries in the United States. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), of the 4,547 fatal workplace injuries that occurred in the United States in 2010, 506 were workplace homicides. Homicide is the leading cause of death for women in the workplace..
Weapons of Mass Destruction Course
Weapon of mass destruction (WMD), weapon with the capacity to inflict death and destruc<on on such a massive scale and so indiscriminately that its very presence in the hands of a hostile power can be considered a grievous threat. Modern weapons of mass destruction are either nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons —frequently referred to collectively as NBC weapons. See nuclear weapon, chemical warfare, biological warfare.
TWIC Card Training Course
TWIC is a common idenfication credential for all personnel requiring unescorted access to secure areas of MTSA (Maritime Transportation Security Act), regulated facilities and vessels, and all mariners holding Coast Guard issued credentials.
Terrorism Surveillance and Counter Surveillance Course
Terrorism is the use of force or violence against persons for purposes of intimidation, coercion or ransom. Terrorists use threats to create fear among the public to try to convince citizens that their government is powerless to prevent terrorism, and to get immediate publicity for their causes.
Security Screening Course
Identification Procedures for Personnel screening All persons entering a facility should possess and show a valid photo I.D. card to gain facility access. Individuals arriving by motorcycle should remove helmets to assist in identification. Security personnel or competent authority should verify that I.D. card matches the person presen<ng it.
Public Building Security Course
Proper maintenance of security systems and regular testing by security personnel is critical for the reliable operation of all levels of the protection systems of a facility or building.
Identifying Security Threats and Patterns Course
The need for careful security planning is clearly the most critical in prevention, being prepared and quick response. Since we are faced with the likelihood of intentionally caused events, which threatens the society as a whole, the need for security planning is essential. Effective security planning begins with, and continually considers, risk as a means to guide actions and make effective use of resources. We must be careful to recognize that, while the visible trappings of physical security may portray an illusion of safety, a careful analysis of the lesser-known elements of vulnerability, consequence, and threat are arguably more important if we are going to achieve a truly secure environment.
Healthcare Facilities Part 2 Course
Consider the variety of people who make up the typical hospital or clinic environment: patients, terminated employees, current employees. Vulnerability in the operation of the healthcare industry includes drugs, bio-hazardous waste, bomb threats, fire, etc. No healthcare facility is without risk. A well trained security force is an asset to the organization and serves as a compliment to the management team.
Facility Security Plan Course
This facility security plan describes the methods, procedures and measures to be used by a company in order to establish security measures and prevent loss, damage or compromise of assets and interruption to business activities.
Circumventing Security Measures Course
When a terrorist or criminal is going to target a facility, they are not going to walk up to the gate office or gangway of a ship and ask to come onboard to commit a heinous crime. Terrorists are intent on causing massive causalities and as much damage as they can. They will not want to get caught before they get to their main objective.
Access Control and Monitoring Course
All sites, regardless of their size and environment, have assets they need to protect from theft, unauthorized access and damage.
Bloodborne Pathogens Course
Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. In order to reduce or eliminate the hazards of occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens, an employer must implement an exposure control plan for the worksite with details on employee protection measures. The plan must also describe how an employer will use engineering and work practice controls, personal protective clothing and equipment, employee training, medical surveillance, hepatitis B vaccinations, and other provisions as required by OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030). Engineering controls are the primary means of eliminating or minimizing employee exposure and include the use of safer medical devices, such as needleless devices, shielded needle devices, and plastic capillary tubes.
Emergency Plan Course
1910.38 - Emergency Action Plan: Having an action plan is an important part of emergency preparedness. However, merely writing one isn’t enough. You also have to make sure it is workable.
Driving Safety Course
When you’re behind the wheel of a car – whether alone or with passengers – driving safely should always be your top concern. We’re more distracted than ever, so it’s crucial to know the basics of safe driving and practice them every time you’re on the road.
Back Safety Course
Back injuries are major safety hazards at the workplace. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) shows that more than one million workers suffer back injuries each year. 75% of these occurred while the employee was lifting. Using proper lifting techniques can help prevent downtime due to avoidable back injuries. Though, no approach will completely eliminate back injuries, a substantial portion can be prevented by incorporating effective administrative controls and engineering controls. Training employees to utilize lifting techniques that place minimum stress on the lower back can go a long way in reducing the back injury incidents.
Disaster Management Course
Disaster management (or emergency management) is the creation of plans through which communities reduce vulnerability to hazards and cope with disasters. Disaster management does not avert or eliminate the threats; instead, it focuses on creating plans to decrease the effect of disasters. Failure to create a plan could lead to human mortality, lost revenue, and damage to assets. Currently in the United States 60 percent of businesses do not have emergency management plans. Events covered by disaster management include acts of terrorism, industrial sabotage, fire, natural disasters (such as earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.), public disorder, industrial accidents, and communication failures.
Active Shooter Awareness Course
An Active Shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area; in most cases, active shooters use firearms(s) and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the shooting and mitigate harm to victims. Because active shooter situations are often over within 10 to 15 minutes, before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation.
Conflict Resolutions Course
Conflict resolution, otherwise known as reconciliation, is conceptualized as the methods and processes involved in facilitating the peaceful ending of conflict and retribution. Committed group members attempt to resolve group conflicts by actively communicating information about their conflicting motives or ideologies to the rest of the group (e.g., intentions; reasons for holding certain beliefs), and by engaging in collective negotiation.
18 Wheel Inspection Course
Accidents involving 18-wheelers and buses often have very tragic consequences. Considering the size, speed, and cargo of these vehicles, accidents and security involving large commercial motor vehicles and buses involve forces that oftentimes lead others involved in these accidents to be seriously injured or killed.
Access to Medical Records Course
1910.1020(a) -The purpose of this course is to explain to employees and their designated representatives a right of access to relevant exposure and medical records; and to provide representatives of the Assistant Secretary a right of access to these records in order to fulfill responsibilities under the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
Advanced Vehicle Search Course
This program will cover proper procedures in conducting an accurate and effective vehicle search. Material will cover what to look for, as well as where to look on and in the vehicle. The procedures will also inform the security officer of what steps to follow if a suspicious package or item is discovered.
Crowd Management Course
Crowd control is a public security practice where large crowds are managed to prevent the outbreak of crowd crushes, affray, fights involving drunk and disorderly people or riots. Crowd crushes in particular can cause many hundreds of fatalities. Crowd control can involve privately hired security guards as well as police officers. Crowd control is often used at large, public gatherings like street fairs, music festivals, stadiums and public demonstrations. At some events, security guards and police use metal detectors and sniffer dogs to prevent weapons and drugs being brought into a venue.
Fire Prevention and Safety Course
1910.39 -Fire safety is important business. National Fire Prevention Week is intended to focus on the importance of fire safety in the home, in schools and at work. But workplace fire safety is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) principal focus and saving lives and preventing injuries due to fire is a key concern. According to National Safety Council figures, losses due to workplace fires in 1988 totaled $3.1 billion. Of the more than 5,000 persons who lost their lives due to fires in 1988, the National Safety Council estimates 360 were workplace deaths. When OSHA conducts workplace inspections, it checks to see whether employers are complying with OSHA standards for fire safety. OSHA standards require employers to provide proper exits, fire fighting equipment, emergency plans, and employee training to prevent fire deaths and injuries in the workplace
Bomb Threats and Pipe Bombs Course
A pipe bomb is an improvised explosive device, which uses a tightly sealed section of pipe filled with an explosive material. The containment provided by the pipe means that simple low explosives can be used to produce a relatively large explosion, and the fragmentation of the pipe itself creates potentially lethal shrapnel. Premature detonation is a hazard of attempting to construct any homemade bomb, and the materials and methods used with pipe bombs make unintentional detonation incidents common, usually resulting in serious injury or death to the assembler. In many countries, the manufacture or possession of a pipe bomb is a serious crime, regardless of its intended use.
GHS: The GHS is an acronym for The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. The GHS is a system for standardizing and harmonizing the classification and labeling of chemicals.
First Aid1 Course
1910.151 - First aid includes any one-time treatment and follow-up for observation of minor injuries, including cuts, abrasions, bruises, first-degree burns, sprains, and splinters. Injuries or illnesses requiring only first aid are commonplace. One or more workers should be properly trained to administer basic first aid, including CPR. Workplaces should have a well-stocked first-aid kit and at least one or more employee assigned the responsibility for administering or coordinating first-aid treatments.
Hazard Communications - In order to ensure chemical safety in the workplace, information must be available about the identities and hazards of the chemicals. OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires the development and dissemination of such information: Chemical manufacturers and importers are required to evaluate the hazards of the chemicals they produce or import, and Prepare labels and material safety data sheets (MSDSs) to convey the hazard information to their downstream customers. All employers with hazardous chemicals in their workplaces must have labels and MSDSs for their exposed workers, and train them to handle the chemicals appropriately
Hearing Conservation Course
Hearing Conservation - Every year, approximately 30 million people in the United States are occupationally exposed to hazardous noise. Noise-related hearing loss has been listed as one of the most prevalent occupational health concerns in the United States for more than 25 years. Thousands of workers every year suffer from preventable hearing loss due to high workplace noise levels. Since 2004, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that nearly 125,000 workers have suffered significant, permanent hearing loss. In 2009 alone, BLS reported more than 21,000 hearing loss cases.
HazWoper Overview Course
Introduction to HazWoper - The purpose of this unit is to give trainees a general understanding of what “HAZWOPER” means, the purpose of the OSHA HAZWOPER Standard, and the requirements associated with safety and health training and medical surveillance. At the conclusion of this unit, trainees will know what “HAZWOPER” means and the purpose of the OSHA HAZWOPER Standard. They will also have a general understanding of chemical hazards, control measures, and the basic requirements of emergency response training.
Information Gathering-Report Writing Course
Written reports are used by employers for a multitude of proprietary reasons. In the area of security, reports are frequently used for evaluation of how well the client’s assets are being protected by the security force. Written reports preserve information, aid supervision, and provide a documented set of facts essential to the functioning of others not at the scene of the incident. The effectiveness of a private security system is determined in part by the quality and quantity of information on a security officer’s written report.
Introduction to CFATS Course
CFATS; Chemical Facility Anti Terrorism Standards : In Section550, of the Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2007, Congress gave the Department of Homeland Security all regulatory authority over security at high risk chemical facilities. In the act, Congress instructed DHS to require all high risk chemical facilities to complete a security vulnerability assessment, develop site security plans and implement protective measures to meet DHS- defined risk based performance standards.
MARSEC Levels Course
MARSEC (MARitime SECurity) is the three-tiered United States Coast Guard Maritime Security system (alert state) designed to easily communicate to the Coast Guard and the maritime industry pre-planned scalable responses for credible threats. Its objective is to provide an assessment of possible terrorist activity within the maritime sectors of transportation, including threats to nautical facilities and vessels falling within the jurisdiction of the United States that could be targets of attack.
New Employee HSE Course
The OSHA Office of Statistics reports that 40 percent of employees injured at work have been on the job less than 1 year. New hires need to be made aware of how serious safety training is right from the start. While there is no specific requirement for new hire safety orientation, many training requirements explicitly state that training must be provided to new employees.
Recognizing Dangerous Substances-Devices Course
Since these devices are non-standard, there are no specific guidelines to positively identify or categorize them. Explosive devices can be contained in almost anything. They have electric, non-electric, or other sophisticated firing systems.
Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Course
In this presentation, you will learn… What defines sexual harassment How to identify & report sexual harassment Sexual Harassment and the law
Universal Waste Training Course
Universal waste is a category of waste materials designated as "hazardous waste", but containing materials that are very common. It is defined in 40 C.F.R. 273.9, by the United States Environmental Protection Agency but states may also have corollary regulations regarding these materials.
Waste Management Training Course
Waste management is the collection, transport, processing or disposal, managing and monitoring of waste materials. The term usually relates to materials produced by human activity, and the process is generally undertaken to reduce their effect on health, the environment or aesthetics. Waste management is a distinct practice from resource recovery which focuses on delaying the rate of consumption of natural resources. All waste materials, whether they are solid, liquid, gaseous or radioactive fall within the remit of waste management.
