Consumers
 

Personal safety is now everyone’s concern – at work, when traveling, when attending public functions - anytime away from home.

 

Recent studies show that most frequent travelers, and nearly all female travelers, rank safety among their top concerns when selecting a hotel. 

 

Parents of college-bound high school juniors and seniors report that campus safety is just as important as excellent teachers and academic quality. 

 

Commercial building owners and managers must demonstrate that they are providing attention to the safety and security of building occupants, while tenant companies must provide attention to the safety and security of their employees. 

 

The increasingly competitive assisted living community market segment is driving providers to advertise/market to consumers and regulators that residents of their facilities receive both quality medical care and excellent living conditions.

 

The new world environment – Department of Homeland Security initiatives and changes to codes, standards and practices have led to new responsibilities and greater accountability for owners/managers of public access facilities – requiring expertise in all facets of security, fire protection and life safety matters.

 

Companies are faced with an increasing number of premises liability lawsuits, higher workman’s compensation costs, and increased competition.  They are constantly struggling for customer loyalty and competitive differentiation.  As a result, businesses must demonstrate a commitment to safety and security – evidence that they are striving for a higher standard of care.

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.

SafePlace®, the SafePlace Accredited and SafePlace Certified designs, SafePlace triangle logo and VAMCAP™, among others, are registered certification marks, trademarks, and/or service marks owned by SafePlace Corporation, or one of its subsidiaries/affiliates, in the United States and other countries.
