NEW YORK , Jan. 28 (UPI) -- ABM Security Services has received liability backing from the U.S. Homeland Security Department, which protects the company in case of a terrorist attack.
The Homeland Security Department announced it has approved ABM Security Services for the SAFETY, or Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies, Act certification. The SAFETY Act certification provides liability protection for the company's security guard services.
The SAFETY Act is designed to protect approved anti-terrorism technologies from liability in the event of a terrorist attack. With the certification ABM Security Services' guard services will be placed on the Homeland Security Department's approved product list.
"Since Sept. 11, 2001, many organizations have faced an unfortunate real-world challenge: putting in place assets that provide some measure of protection against terrorist threats, while at the same time protecting themselves, financially, from any potential litigation arising from the deployment of those assets following a terrorist event," Chris Hansen, ABM Security Services executive vice president, said in a statement.
"Receiving SAFETY Act certification gives our customers one more important reason for selecting ABM Security Services."
