Effective consulting identifies real, practical problems in structures, practices, policies of operation and behavior that are “accidents waiting to happen” or security breaches that have systematically been missed.

Car Dealership – Ardmore

A sign directed customers to park in rear of building in a congested area. Yet, in pulling in, a car could be confronted by a delivery truck backing out blindly in the single traffic lane pattern. We recommended enforcing policy of one-way traffic only and some simple devices to assure this. We also recommended having their suppliers sign a policy regarding this and supply certificates of insurance.

Major Insurance Company Campus – West Philadelphia

Large quarter square mile urban campus challenged by surrounding community’s teens. We recommended dedicating a couple basketball courts in exchange for the players keeping an eye on things.

Major Industrial Distributor – Bensalem PA

Company employed guard at gate station. Had sign “Must Stop at Gate.” We observed that no one stopped at gate and everyone just drove right in.

Private Executive Estate – Montgomery County

Existing burglar alarm installed by a leading major alarm company had radio backup dialer if telephone wires were cut. The telephone wires were plainly accessible from ground level. During a break-in, the telephone wires were cut and the radio backup did not work. The system was not “supervised” meaning there was no indication of wires being cut or radio not functioning. We were contacted following break-in and per our recommendation, the home owner rerouted telephone wires to enter at attic level, not ground level. We identified that the radio dialer was the wrong type to function in the non air-conditioned space where it was located, the glass break sensor was on wrong wall, and a motion sensor was in the wrong location. A “mock strike” by the original alarm company would have revealed these deficiencies without the loss of over $200,000 in uninsured collector’s valuables, and the anguish and the time associated.

Distributor – Philadelphia

Distributor had entrance steps with treads that were too short and not to code, the sprinkler system was improperly installed above suspended system so heat sensors were blocked, sprinkler system inspection was not current, and loading dock cameras were not working.

Women’s Prison – NJ

Prisoners could not escape on their own but any confederate of theirs on the outside could readily get them out with little risk of detection.

Medium Security Prison – West Chester PA

A beautiful $1,800 lock device prevented escape except that a little $3 part totally defeated this security and a prisoner could escape with no sign of how they did it.

Major Insurance Company Computer Campus – Great Valley

Client concerned about terrorist or saboteur strike. We identified above ground basement ventilation vents as possible intake of poisonous gas and specified how to protect.

General Contractor – Camden NJ

The jobsite trailer was exposed to public street because temporary fence abutted either end of trailer. We recommended a sonic detector if anyone broke into trailer from underneath through floor. We also recommended backing up all data and bolting computer, a sign-in book with policies for deliverymen entering site, and better maintenance of water and mud under gate used by pedestrians to avoid slips.

Chemical Company – Falls Township

Company was concerned about visitors and required that all visitors sign their sign-in book. Next to the book was a sheet of paper which said that by signing book, the visitor accepted policies such as wearing safety glasses, not smoking, no photographs, must be self-insured. The problem was that nothing on the sign-in book itself referenced the policy sheet so the whole procedure would have had no legal enforceability. We identified solutions to close this small loophole, which could mean the difference of millions of dollars in liability.
