Deploying Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology
JANUARY 29, 2021
When it comes to bolstering your security, Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technologies help you place rigorous vetting in motion, while also limiting your liability should something beyond your control happen. When you deploy Safety-Act-Certified products you set efficient and secure systems in place that also reduce financial risk or legal responsibility due to terror attacks within your building, facility, or campus.
What is Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology (QATT)?
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security created the SAFETY Act to limit liability for claims resulting from an act of terrorism where Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technologies (QATTs) have been deployed.
What is the SAFETY Act?
The SAFETY (Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies) Act was established in 2002 by the Department of Homeland Security. The Office of SAFETY Act Implementation (OSAI) vets technologies, products, services, and software to determine if their offering is a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology.
How These Technologies Help You
When picking your visitor, vehicle, and vendor management software, choose wisely. Visit the Safety Act website to verify the software you intend to implement on your loading dock or facility has truly been vetted by the DHS.
Not only will you know your system has gone through rigorous testing, but you will also reap the benefits that come from deploying a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology in your building or facility. The SAFETY Act provides important legal liability protections for providers of Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technologies. Claims cannot be brought up against the buyers or users of a QATT.
Why You Can Trust QATT
Because anti-terrorism technologies have been vetted to ensure they prevent nefarious acts to the best of their ability by putting steps and policies in place, you can also trust they will handle your facility with the same rigor.
