Hostile Vehicle Mitigation

Security is a core business issue and should be firmly embedded in management systems and processes.  Everyone is responsible for security, not just security specialists. Ownership of risk must be unambiguous, and be aligned with budgetary authority and accountability.  The management of security risk should complement and mirror the application of corporate governance principles.

Risk is defined as "A future uncertain event that could influence the achievement of business objectives and statutory obligations."  This applies to every area of business activity including security.  Such risk arises from the random nature of events, imperfect or incomplete knowledge, human behaviour, resource and time constraints, and lack or failure of control systems.  It is assessed concerning likelihood and impact using qualitative and quantitative methods and judgment borne of a group and individual experience.

Heald's Commander - 30 Tonne Road Blocker

The Commander is still the world's only road blocker PAS68 tested to stop dead a 30 tonne truck travelling at 80 kph (50mph).

This is officially the highest ever impact energy test successfully undertaken on a security barrier. It achieved a zero penetration result and remained fully operational afterwards. The Commander is intended for sites where high profile security is essential.

The commander will operate after impact, maintaining emergency services access and also continued protection.
