In recent times, acts of terrorism are becoming more frequent and are targeting individuals, public spaces and organisations. Designers, Principal Designers and Clients need to consider the spaces they are designing to safe guard these (as far as is reasonably practicable), using the best information and resources that are available that will mitigate against a terrorism event.

Clive Johnson the Group Head of Health, Safety & Security for Landsec will be presenting and discussing the impact of anti-terrorism and his experiences. He will explain the way Landsec are addressing the changing climate around security in the environments that we occupy. Clive will also give an introduction to PAS 68/69 and the PISA tool.

PAS 68:2010 is the latest BSi’s Publicly Available Specification for vehicle security barriers. This standard is the benchmark for HVM (Hostile Vehicle Mitigation) equipment. The standard contains the regime which products are tested against.

PAS 69:2006 provides guidance on the selection, installation and use of vehicle security barriers to ensure that they are selected and placed as effectively as possible. PAS 69 intended to be used by designers, planners, architects, security managers and facilities managers within the public and private sectors.
