Business breakfasts

In addition to our Regional and National CPD, we are introducing a series of business breakfasts.  These will be interactive sessions where you will be able to learn about a construction related topic and network with your peers over a morning coffee.  What's more, you will gain 4 CPD points for attending. The first tranche will cover the topic: Secured by Design. 

Secured by Design

In recent times - horribly - acts of terrorism are becoming  more frequent, targeting individuals, public spaces, and organisations.  Designers, Principal Designers, and Clients need to consider the spaces they are designing to safe guard these \9as far as is reasonably practicable), utilising the best information and resource that are available to us to mitigate against a terrorism event. Clive Johnson the Group Head of Health, Safety & Security for Landsec will be presenting and discussing his experiences on the impact of anti-terrorism and how at Landsec they are trying to address the changing terrorism climate in the environments that we occupy. Clive will also give an introduction to PAS 68/69 and the PISA tool.

You'll also find out more about:

  • 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.
  • PSIA Protective Security Improvement Assessment tool - The PSIA Tool was commissioned in 2014 by the UK Government’s Home Office, Office for Security and Counter Terrorism (OSCT).
  • The PSIA is only available to the those sites that are within the National Crowded Places program from NaCTSO – they are currently not adding any more so our tool is the nearest that they can get to the National Model

Key benefits:

Clive’s presentation will provide a real and practical insight into the application of anti-terrorism measures within the built environment and how health and safety impacts can be mitigated.  This event is an extremely interesting and thought-provoking element of any construction health and safety professional’s (whether an APS Member or not) continuing professional development as it provides attendees with the latest information, delivered in a thoroughly engaging way.

CPD ponts: 4 

Who should attend?

Any construction professional, particularly those with an interest in this subject matter and how the latest developments can provide much improved design solutions and benefits to their clients.


The cost for the breakfasts are £30 Members and £40 Non Members.
