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.

Manufacturer – Philadelphia

Manufacturer produced steel wire and rods and nothing restricted unannounced visitors from entering an open door on side of building. In fact, employees on break directed visitor through this door to walk down plant floor to office. But hundreds of cut pieces of ¼” diameter rod, several inches long, laying all over the floor made a very hazardous environment for workers and visitors. Also, the manufacturer is located in high crime area but office door had no electric lock/ door release to protect employees. 

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.

Car Dealership – Philadelphia

We observed that a 60’ lamppost was missing three of the four nuts on the bolts that hold post to its base, creating a very dangerous situation where the lamppost could have fallen onto Roosevelt Boulevard.

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.

General Contractor – Philadelphia

A busy Center City location of new high-rise steel construction had temporary fence panels with 9” gaps from bottom of panels to ground (code stipulates less than 4”). Also adjacent concrete “Jersey barriers” provided convenient step to step over 6’ high panels, making them effectively 3’ high to climb over. Perfect “playground” or childhood wonderland for trespassing children to explore and also a deathtrap. Law holds property owner responsible for injuries to trespassing children.

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.

Restaurant/ Bar – Wildwood NJ

Outdoor bar patio area elevated 10’ above concrete sidewalk. A 30” high wall surrounded edge, always used for sitting upon. A guest was shoved over wall by another guest who attacked him. Defense position was business owner not responsible for criminal acts on property. Our position was wall was not to code (42” height) and owner should have anticipated problems from drinking and fights, given this hazard. The case was settled for millions.

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.

Major Retailer – Philadelphia

Large outdoor inventory. Observed employee stealing merchandise by the forklift load and selling out back gate. Crime was reported.

Parking Garage – Philadelphia

Pedestrians were repeatedly walking up the cars-only down ramp, at risk for being struck. We recommended a system to detect people and prevent this. At another location with valet parking where valets would often speed, we recommended a system to monitor car speed and identify problem valets.
