Wed 18 April 2:15pm | Business Solutions Stage
With recent incidents impacting on public spaces, we are at risk of over-reacting by turning our cities and buildings into unsightly fortresses. If this happens, the terrorists and the one-off malicious individuals have the upper hand.But we are also exposed to security from within, with theft still a significant issue. So how do we avoid this? Is it possible to establish a level of security that protects our safety and security without excessively intruding into our daily lives? Is there a balance between overt and covert security that workers and society at large find acceptable.

The manner in which the building is designed, the materials used and how they are put together represent the first line of defence against a devastating fire. However, this is only part of the response to protecting user safety - ensuring that all the building safety features (such as fire escape routes) are properly maintained and ensuring that all building users know what to do in an emergency are essential components of fire safety.
