Electronic Security Systems (OPRD)


Hazard 360 Ltd has developed four specific Operational Requirement Documents (OPRD) the direct purpose of the (OPRD) is to ensure that the correct requirements of a specific service is detailed to prevent overselling and also to ensure that equipment being specified meets the need of the organisation aligned to a cost benefit basis and risk mitigation.

OPRD Requirement:

Hazard 360 Ltd can assist your organisation by constructing and delivering an OPRD to suit your needs, this ensures factual information of an exact requirement.

What is an Operational Requirement Document? (OPRD)

An OPRD is a document used to define the application of security elements. It is also used to ensure that the correct equipment is being selected to meet the security objectives. It also curtails the over application of security elements as each element is specifically identified as to its type, purpose and security objective.

An OPRD is the client’s best friend - if used properly - as it prevents equipment being over specified, thus costing the client more money.

Operational Requirement Document – C.C.T.V. Camera Systems

The purpose of an Operational Requirement Document is to ensure that the selection of equipment to be applied is relevant to the areas being observed.

The Operational Requirement clearly defines the objectives of the CCTV Camera System, its scope, the designation of each individual camera and all associated sub-systems equipment. Using an Operational Requirement Document prevents overselling of equipment, and ensures that the apparatus to be installed meets the required specifications and purposes.

Operational Requirement Document - Access Control Systems

The requirements within an Operational Requirement document are to identify the essential Access Control Systems equipment being used, as above, and that they are pertinent to the areas to be controlled. The operational requirement clearly distinguishes the essential capabilities and associated requirements of the Access Control System, its scope which includes database management and levels of access control to specified areas of the premises.

It includes designation of each individual access control point’s hardware, and associated sub-systems equipment. Using an Operational Requirement document prevents any exaggerated, unnecessary purchasing of equipment, ensuring that the apparatus being installed meets the required specification and is fit for purpose.

Operational Requirement Document - Intruder Detection Systems

The rationale of an Operational Requirement document is to make sure that the choice of Intruder Detection Systems equipment to be operated is applicable to the areas to be scrutinised i.e., suitable for the environment in which they are to monitor. Sometimes it has been found that a client may in fact have been oversubscribed with camera equipment and some kit can be removed. However, occasionally some clients do not have enough.

 The Operational Requirement Document clearly defines the system’s objectives, its scope and includes the type of detection sensors to be deployed. They include the reasons behind their deployment, and also encompass the siting of control panels and monitoring facilities. Using an Operational Requirement document prevents embellishing the merits of the equipment and ensures that, when installed, they meet the obligatory conditions and objectives.

Operational Requirement Document – Manned Security Services

The OPRD for manned security services takes into consideration the requirement for a physical human being to be deployed to provide a specific function, and also looks at force multipliers such as electronic security systems.
