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.
