How to maximize facilities management and minimize security risks

Course Description/Agenda

Feeling Insecure About Your Security?

As a facilities manager, you face an enormous amount of challenges and responsibility each and every day. There are issues that you plan for and many more you couldn't have possibly imagined. It's your job to keep the place running smoothly and safely. And, more importantly, on budget.

As a facilities manager, you must stay up on dozens of issues and regulations.

Contracts, negotiations, maintenance hassles, financial planning, and efficiency improvements are all part of your day-to-day. That may seem more than enough for several people to deal with on a full-time basis, but it's all handled by you. Staying up to date on all the latest security practices may be one of the last things on your mind.

That's why we've introduced this brand-new workshop - to give you the most up-to-date security and facilities management information, including compliance standards for a variety of government regulations. Attending The Essentials of Security and Facilities Management gives you the chance to get ahead of the game, while protecting your assets.

Here's just a sample of what you'll learn:

  • How to assess and close security gaps for a maximum level of protection
  • Tips to proactively find and reduce hidden safety hazards
  • Creating and implementing a preventive maintenance program
  • Environmentally friendly ways to reduce overall energy costs
  • Establishing an effective annual work plan
  • Understanding and computing return on investment (ROI)

That's just for starters.
