2009 seminar series on counter terrorism

TPS Consult : 30 January, 2009  (New Product)
Corporate protection from acts of terrorism to be the theme of a series of seminars planned by TPS Consult
2009 seminar series on counter terrorism
The Security Consulting Group at TPS (part of Carillion plc) will be hosting another series of seminars in 2009 following the success of their counter terrorism security seminar and Q&A sessions last year. The events successfully shed new light on the best and latest practices in protection of corporate buildings and occupiers from the risk of terrorism.

At the last TPS free event, held at the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh, over sixty key people were in attendance, including representatives of Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, members of the Scottish Government, Police and Fire Service, architects, engineers and members of corporate security industry.

The seminar, chaired by Professor Yong Lu, Professor of Structural Mechanics at the Institute for Infrastructure and Environment at Edinburgh University, covered bomb blast and hostile vehicle mitigation measures for the built environment, critical national infrastructure and crowded places; following themes laid down in the security review conducted by the Government's Security Minster, Lord West.

A particularly notable area of discussion raised within the seminar was the examination of issues relating to collateral damage that could be sustained by buildings in close proximity to what could be regarded as high value targets by terrorists - an issue that has been all too often overlooked in the past.

"TPS is very pleased to host these free events on what is an incredibly important subject for all of those with an interest in the safety and security of the built environment," said Mark Whyte, Director of Security Consulting and Explosion Effects at TPS. "Getting the message across that designing in security at an early stage in any new scheme, is the most operationally and cost effective way of helping to keep people and assets safe and secure."

The instant success of the event was verified not only by the volume of positive feedback received by the organisers, but also by the calls for follow up seminars. TPS is addressing these requests with plans for a series of further seminars around the UK in 2009.
