Threat & Risk Assessments: Our Threat & Risk Assessments (TRA) provide a comprehensive analysis of the risks associated with a specific site. We use industry-standard methodologies such as ASIS, RCMP, and Nuclear Standards to create these assessments. Our TRA includes recommendations to reduce risks, evaluates emergency services response times, and assigns your facility a risk ranking.
Security System Design & Engineering: Our team of experts offers cannabis and psychedelics security system designs that comply with industry best practices and regulatory requirements. We create fully compliant security system designs that incorporate Access Control, Intrusion Detection, and Video Surveillance for both the interior and exterior of the site.
Security System Optimization & Migration: We help existing licensed producers optimize their security systems and provide guidance and recommendations on how to migrate their existing systems to newer and better platforms. We ensure that the security systems are compliant with regulations and review quotes and designs for potential cost savings.
Physical Security Plans: We offer cannabis and psychedelics physical security plans that accompany a Threat & Risk Assessment and Security System Design to form a compliant and easy-to-understand application document set. These plans help governing bodies understand the security system design for your facility and how that design complies with current regulations.
Organizational Security Plans: Our cannabis and psychedelics organizational security plans are formal documents required by Health Canada that outline the security policy and procedures of a site. These plans describe the types of job positions that will be found within the operations of the site and identify key individuals who are responsible for certain aspects of business operations. The plans outline the roles and responsibilities of staff assigned to security-related duties and briefly describe the security-centric SOPs that have been created for the site.
Hosted Video Evidence Packages & Promotional Videos: We help in creating a fully built-out facility, compliant application documents, and a rock-solid evidence package that is required by Health Canada before you can apply for a license. Our team performs a hosted video tour of your facility, reviews all necessary documents, and helps you create the best possible evidence package to be sent to Health Canada for review. We also offer promotional videos to showcase your facility to potential investors.
Security System Installation Tendering & Project Management: We have years of experience managing security system installations and are uniquely positioned to help you find a security installer, manage that installer, and commission your security system installation. We ensure that the installation companies we work with are honest and provide high-quality installations that comply with regulations. We manage the installation process to ensure that everything is completed according to the design and meets all necessary compliance requirements.
