Security audits are a detailed and through assessment of the existing security procedures and systems operating within a facility They are fundamental in identifying areas of risk and site-specific problems as well as the foundation for developing policies and procedures for effective security management.
LPGA undertakes security audits in all sectors and has recently developed a unique security audit for large hospitals and health care facilities supporting them to achieve full compliance to all mandatory components of the Australian Standard 4485 “Security for Healthcare Facilities” and also meet relevant NSQHS, EQuIP National & ISO 9001 (Health Service Accreditation) standards.
Several hospitals and healthcare networks are now utilising the expertise of LPGA to undertake specialised security audits in the healthcare environment.
Comprehensive models are used to analyse security standards and evaluate risk factors. Detailed reports to clients include recommendations in the form of a "Continuous Improvement Plan" that can be progressively implemented to resolve identified deficiencies.
Workplace Investigations can be conducted for the following:
- Workplace Abuse (Bullying & Harassment, sexual abuse, racial discrimination)
- Fradulent Activity
- Theft within the workplace
- Asset Loss
Typically, our approach is to review all relevant organisational policies and procedures, codes of conduct (including professional standards, awards and/or workplace agreements) to collate and then analyse relevant evidence gathered.
Our services include the presentation of the findings detailed in an investigation report together with observations and recommendations that may assist the organisation going forward.
