Stand For Security Educates Facilities Managers About U.S. Security Associates at IFMA World Workplace Conference
This week, Stand for Security was in Phoenix for the International Facility Management Association’s World Workplace Conference and Expo, the largest annual conference for facility management professionals. The conference aims to address strategies for managing facilities, which may include contracting with private security firms.
Members of Stand for Security handed out information to educate conference attendees on how to go about hiring a responsible security contractor and also how to perform a background check on security firms to make sure there are no skeletons in the closet.
A background check on U.S. Security Associates (USSA) reveals closeted skeletons aplenty. At the conference, Stand for Security members distributed critical information about USSA regarding failed weapons tests , sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuits, health and safety violations, and having public contracts cancelled because of certification and training issues.
Several facilities managers expressed gratitude for the USSA information and voiced strong support for Stand for Security’s mission–raising security industry standards throughout the United States.
We look forward to seeing our friends again at future industry conferences.
