Physical Security Assessment

Physical security assessment refers to the process of examining the efficiency of those employees in an organization who are responsible for physically protecting the premises and the people working there. These people are trained in combat and in some cases also given arms training. They must be in good shape and excellent health so that they are able to tackle any emergency situation like robberies or attacks. It is necessary to conduct an examination of these security people to see if they have the right skills and physical strength to do their job. They are also tested on their knowledge of public safety and security management skills.
