Team Before Self recognizes that security needs are critical in the planning and designing process. This includes, but not limited to, working with contractors and architects, and other key staff, pertaining to planning security needs at the beginning of any potential building design or addition. By doing so, it will result in the constructing of a facility operating and adhering to strong security measures, resulting in maximum protection of staff, clients, assets and more. By hiring TBS, you eliminate the guesswork of establishing security in your new facility, while simultaneously making security operations cost-effective overall, and less intrusive from the end user’s perspective.
TBS’s process embraces three main functions in establishing security at your new facility / enterprise: to identify risks, determine / evaluate / monitor action and implement the new security plan / locations. This includes, but not limited to, working with new site & building plans – risk identification, selecting & determining security requirements as appropriate and working with locations with having diverse security levels, selecting/creating/establishing security areas/zones/locations, embracing entrances/exits (locked doors / security fences - re-barb / gates, parking lots / valet / commercial vehicles, landscaping / vehicular barriers), lighting (day & night), all electronic security systems: entrance (designation, access & control), video surveillance (monitoring & analyzing footage), proper use of security intercom system, building & panic alarms, security screening technology (package scans, metal detectors, etc.), security for high-value items & monetary worth (safes / vaults that contain bullet/blast resistant barriers), selecting / designating & assigning appropriate security signage, emergency communications systems (first responder), site inspections, and provide miscellaneous consultation regarding the implementation of CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) methodologies to ensure security initiatives are completed with ease.
Because Team Before Self conducts high-quality physical security assessments pertaining to security needs of various work environments, with this comes the need to train your staff pertaining to security protocol. Having a security manual that reflects all SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures), and security policies makes adhering to security best practices effective for your work environment. TBS writes security manuals from scratch and also modifies old security manuals that may contain outdated practices, resulting in making them current. Although working with your existing security manual may appear easier, in some cases modifications are numerous and drastic, adding high levels of re-work due to new security measures & levels, ultimately resulting in creating a brand-new security manual and extensively training staff accordingly.
Team Before Self conducts high-quality physical security assessments pertaining to security needs of various work environments with diverse clients from both the private & public sectors, in both small & large scale.

Security Assessment Process
TBS’s process embraces three main functions: to identify risks, determine corrective action and evaluate / monitor the newly implemented security plan. The process starts by meeting with decision-making management. Once commitment is attained, TBS will start by requesting company documentation (site & building plans, protocol, analyzing current and existing security policies, etc.), doing a walk-though of the facilities, corresponding with select staff working with security-related functions (reception area, shipping, receiving, etc.), conducting detailed inspections of selected covered areas, conducting an evening evaluation / assessment (without the presence of sunlight) to view levels of shade/darkness and how operations after hours are deployed. Preliminary findings and recommendations will be provided in a report for management to review so evaluation and an implementation plan can be established.
