The Challenges facing Facilities
Managers
“If you want a job done properly, then give it to a busy person to
do!” You guessed it:

The Facilities Manager!

Facilities Managers are being compared with dedicated security


managers
Senior Management’s Expectations from Facilities Managers
are increasing
Professionalism in Security Management is taken for granted
The Days are Getting Longer!
Time is of the essence! Everything is Urgent!
The Challenges facing Facilities
Managers - continued
Crime (especially violent crime) is increasing!
Terrorism has changed its ‘colours’ and is back with a
global vengeance!
Public & Private Corporate personnel are especially
nervous
Budgets aren’t keeping pace with the threats
On the mainland, Regulation has arrived (PSIA/SIA)
The Police are increasingly engaged in ‘Fire Brigade’
responses, leaving corporations to become more pro-
active in security and crime prevention
The Powers & Responsibilities of
Facilities Managers

This ranges from active involvement in setting


security policy & strategy to operational roles
FM’s are rapidly becoming ‘in-house’ security
specialists/advisors. This brings advantages and
disadvantages (e.g. enhanced status and conversely
new roles such as fraud investigation)
Knowledge of criminal law and related legislation is
now added to the long list of other legislation that
FM’s are expected to know (Theft Acts, Anti-terrorism
laws, PACE etc.)
The Powers & Responsibilities of
Facilities Managers

Knowledge of the latest Security Technology is a


‘must’
Knowing where & how to obtain that knowledge is
key (e.g. exhibitions, trade journals, web sites, peers
external consultants/specialists and of course, from
your own experience)
Procurement skills are essential along with the
management of tender processes
Your views/opinions will be respected, so getting it
right is essential!
The Actions that Facilities Managers can
reasonably take
Work to a plan
Don’t ‘shoot from the hip’
Be pro-active
Be smart!
