Risk Assessment in Shopping Centres: Why is it needed?

Effective, efficient and tailor-made retail security management plans are required for shopping centres, to ensure the safety of patrons, store employees, management staff, and physical assets within their premises.

What is Risk Assessment? The process of identifying possible hazards and threats to the establishment and their level of vulnerability to threats.
The risks are assessed by measuring the levels of threat and vulnerability individually. When neither of the two is present, chances of risk would be thin. To ensure zero risks, security management plans are devised to reduce threats and decrease the establishment’s vulnerabilities.
