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.

Southern Cross Group Supports OzHarvest Market

The OzHarvest Market is Australia’s first ever rescued food supermarket, stocked with produce that has either been donated or would otherwise go to waste, but is perfectly edible. Based on a ‘take what you need, give what you can’ philosophy, their purpose is to make rescued food available to everyone, especially those who need it most.

The Market offers a range of products from fresh fruit and vegetables, bread, tinned goods, frozen meals and drinks to toiletries and home products.

As supporters of sustainability in all forms, Southern Cross Group were delighted to support this forward thinking charitable initiative by offering pro-bono security services to the Market’s Grand Opening at Kensington.

Some of the official partners in attendance at the event included the Mayor of Randwick and various supporters and board members. Southern Cross Group would like to wish OzHarvest continued success in all their endeavors.
