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.

Construction Site at Military Base – Philadelphia

Construction workers required to wear safety glasses. Some did so in “fashionable style” atop their heads on top of their hair, unless they saw a safety inspector approach. We introduced policy to correct this behavior and minimize risk of accident or injury.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

Lodge and Restaurant – Lake Louise, Canadian Rockies

Hallway had transition that was not to code, consisting of a single step 1 ¾” high. We recommended installing ramp of 1:10 slope and side railing to meet code, and also directing spotlight onto area and painting contrasting color on riser. Other walkways had slope less than 1:10. We recommended painting light colored band of flowers or patterns and directing light onto area as temporary measure, and correcting slope as permanent measure.

Low Income Housing – Vineland NJ

Housing unit had controlled access motorized slide gates but unauthorized cars would tailgate in behind the tenants’ car.  We installed cameras with status alert from gate activation.

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.

Concrete Plant – Philadelphia

Plant had existing cameras but those were only viewed at random times during the day by staff. We recommended an electronic system to convert cameras from this random use to full 24/7 monitoring by computer video analytics, primarily engaged after hours.
