School Security Assessment Programme in Australia
Marrapodi, John
PEB Exchange, Article 3 Mar 2007
This article describes a successful security risk management programme in Australia. The state-wide programme follows a structured risk management approach focusing on the safety and security of people, information, provision, and assets in the school environment. To assist school principals, a Security Risk Assessment Programme was developed on a CD-Rom. The CD-Rom begins with a short video showing the process for undertaking a Security Risk Assessment of a school site. After the video is a step-by-step guide on how a school can complete the Security Risk Assessment spreadsheet. Based on the data entered, a formula contained in the spreadsheet calculates the level of risk from low to extreme. The risks can also be ranked by order of severity. This helps plan which of the treatments to implement first, based on the severity of the risk and budget allocation. (Contains 3 tables and 3 footnotes.)
