    Document them, and if they don't get fixed and someone gets hurt you're not responsible, either morally or legally.

    Having worked at sites with numerous environmental hazards that were documented and were ignored until problems happened. This was during good times I could only imagine how things are during the pandemic. Security has always been considered either an unnecessary expense or a shield of liability from litigation. The need for security hitting businesses that did not have a previous need for them to have it has stretched budgets in down economic times does lead to some things being overlooked. Document and deal with is all I can tell you do.

    From the IFPO - as a guy who has been in and out of this industry for a few decades, nothing really new here. The topic that was interesting to me was the need for more CPTED in conjunction with a regular security patrol. Using natural light and eliminating shadows / hiding spots at night is one of those common sense things that I've seen neglected on too many sites.
