Requirements for SafePlace® Accreditation and Certification programs are minimum requirements based primarily upon selected internationally recognized codes, standards and recommended practices.  Compliance with SafePlace requirements does not guarantee protection of all property, information and people (employees, guests, etc.) against all claims and threats.  Participation in SafePlace programs is intended to reduce the likelihood of harm with respect to certain fire protection, security, life safety and emergency management matters, but cannot totally eliminate the possibility of such harm.


Responsible property owners and managers participate in SafePlace programs in an effort to enhance their facility safety and protection program.  Ultimately, it is the responsibility of property management to create and maintain an effective protection system.  This must be accomplished in a realistic and measurable way, to insure that their protection program effectively reduces risk.
