ACT Awareness is a national scheme to protect buildings and their surrounding neighbourhoods from the threat of terrorism. It is one of several steps you can take to protect your employees and premises from the threat of terrorism and enhance your security posture.
Prior to the emergence of COVID-19, the Security Minister announced his intention to consult on a ‘Protect Duty’ to improve security at public venues and spaces. This new duty could compel certain owners and operators of publicly accessible locations to consider the risk from terrorism and take reasonable steps to improve protection and mitigate the impacts of an attack. The consultation is open to the public, and is targeted at venues, organisations, businesses, local and public authorities and/or individuals who own or operate at publicly accessible locations, or others that a ‘Protect Duty’ would potentially affect. Don’t get caught out, take action and enrol on this session, certificates will be provided.
