UPDATE: Westminster incident. In light of the tragic events that took place in Westminster last week, counter-terrorism and security training is being offered to all businesses’ employees in April.
The Project Griffin training events will guide you on how best to reduce and respond to the most likely terrorist incidents and are useful for all members of staff. South Bank BID has arrange training for you and your staff in our neighbourhood. Sessions were held in the fortnight after the attack and more are planned in the second half of April, which you can register an interest in.
In the meantime, you are reminded that the advice to businesses in light of last week’s incident is: to consider reviewing your security patrol strategy, to make routines less predictable; to shut non-essential entry points and focus CCTV on entry and exits; to review building and business continuity plans; ensure that First Aid points are stocked and known to staff; and to circulate the Stay Safe: Firearms and Weapons Attack video to your staff.
Whilst police inquiries into the Westminster incident are ongoing, all those arrested in connection with the incident have been released and the attacker is believed to have acted alone. As the police have highlighted, while arms and weapons attacks in the UK are very rare, tragic events like the one at Westminster, and others around the world, remind us of the need to always be prepared.
