By ASME Innovative Technologies Institute (ASME-ITI, LLC)
A college or university’s ability to respond and recover from a disaster can save lives and help ensure academic continuity. The tragedies of the 2005 Gulf Coast hurricanes plus the recent acts of violence that have struck numerous campuses across the country underscore the need to gain a better understanding of the risks posed to higher education institutions due to disasters, large-scale crimes, and other emergencies.
To aid that effort, ASME-Innovative Technologies Institute, LLC (ASME-ITI) has convened a Higher Education Standard Committee of academics, risk experts, and emergency management personnel to develop this Standard, based on the Risk Analysis and Management for Critical Asset Protection (RAMCAP) Plus® process. RAMCAP Plus® employs a common terminology, common metrics and consistent methodology tailored to the technologies, practices and cultures of the respective industries to permit direct comparisons within and across industry sectors. Such direct comparisons are essential to support rational decision-making for allocating limited private and public resources to reduce risk at academic institutions as well.
Protecting people and facilities on campus is vital. ASME-ITI’s knowledgeable and diverse Committee is pioneering these risk-analysis standards for academia. We can provide the expertise needed to help you maintain safe and secure learning environments.
Intended for facility and risk managers at institutions of higher learning, along with upper-echelon academic administrators.
