The Chamber is feeling pretty secure with our latest new member:
At KENT we believe custom security procedures that effectively utilize security personnel and equipment are critical to achieving your Resort/Hotel’s goals.
Our area of expertise is in hands-on assessment and planning the most highly effective security program for your establishment by developing and implementing the most fundamental piece of your program; your security procedures.
We acknowledge that each property is different which requires a different approach. And without continuous awareness at the management level, an establishment’s security program may suffer.
To prevent this from happening, we involve all levels of management and supervisory staff in our process.
A good security program will stress the prevention of security problems. However, it must be recognized not all situations that may arise are preventable.
The following is a list of areas we cover in our assessments, planning, and the resulting security procedures:
Locks and key controlPerimeter controlProtection of assets (money on hand, guest’s assets and equipment)Emergency protocolsSecurity record keepingElectronic verification patrol systemsPhysical Security Audits and check lists
KENT will also assist in Job Hazard Assessments in the prevention process in safety.
Hazards and Risks:
a. Hazard… a hazard means anything that can cause harm i.e. chemicals, electricity, obstructions, poor lighting etc.
