Coronavirus and Mail Safety

When global issues arrive, it pays to be prepared. The coronavirus took the world by storm, forcing employee and citizen seclusion as well as quarantine procedures across the globe. Because many illnesses can be transmitted by touch and tend to live a long while outside of human hosts, the prospect of contagion transmission is perceived to be high. The real question remains: how contagious is COVID-19 via mail and package delivery?

The Unexpected Reality of Large Vehicle Attacks

Terrorism takes many forms, but the most potent attacks come when everyday items are transformed into weapons of destruction. Cities the world over are faced with such attacks, and their responses will shape not only safety practices but the development of those cities as a whole. As more and more metropolitan areas add barricades and additional security measures, it comes at a cost. Pedestrian traffic and public enjoyment might be limited by barriers, but what is being sacrificed, and can those concerns be mitigated?

A Barrier to Terrorism or the Public?

Terrorism takes many forms, but the most potent attacks come when everyday items are transformed into weapons of destruction.

The Intention Behind Vehicular Events

Vehicular attacks are quickly becoming a real and regular threat. According to a 2018 San Jose State University study, the number of events involving this method of assault has skyrocketed worldwide in recent years. While large trucks and transportation vehicles are often the vehicles chosen thanks in part to their larger size, these aren't the only tools used by those with malicious intent. Not all of these occurrences are tied to terrorism and may involve other factors. As such, architects and security teams need to be aware of the danger smaller vehicles pose to those they protect.

Designing Security With a Big City Mindset

Designing a secure location can be a challenge, but having to do so in the midst of a bustling metropolis poses even bigger issues. Along with needing to keep the building and its occupants safe from vehicular and personal intrusion, architects will also have to keep the local population in mind. While redesigning and adding to their second corporate headquarters, these are exactly the problems Amazon has to face in Arlington, VA. Fortunately, the company has an excellent model that integrates state-of-the-art security with a park-like landscape.

Keeping Parking Garages Safe Zones

Unmanned parking garages are becoming a staple in larger cities. As companies take advantage of remote security and automated egress systems, the need for a large on-site security force for these enclosed structures seems to be diminishing. But a recent rise in attacks has led some companies to rethink this model. By adding additional security measures and a physical security presence, these areas can become much safer for foot and vehicular traffic.

Portable Protection on a Smaller Scale

Safety is always a primary concern, even in locales where aesthetics and architecture play a dominant role in landscaping. Places such as malls and town greens must be easily accessible for foot traffic and pose their own safety issues. When planning a layout for a major corporation or university campus, it's easy to integrate permanent solutions to vehicular defense threats. Problems arise when security staff needs to make accommodations for areas where safety has been an afterthought.

Beautiful Bollards Are the Attractive Alternative

Protecting people and property from vehicular threats would appear to be an easy task. Many buildings and roadways already have security measures in place, or rely on temporary solutions to fix permanent problems. Other areas might need to keep cars and trucks away from pathways mainly used for foot traffic but may still require vehicle access in emergencies or for maintenance work.
