Historic England - Heritage Crime Risk Assessment - This guidance note is aimed at heritage professionals, community groups and volunteers who have little or no experience of risk management and crime prevention. Its aim is to introduce a straightforward methodology that will help them to assess and quantify relative crime risks and to implement cost-effective measures to address those risks. This process is distinct from any assessment of risk undertaken for insurance purposes.
(Although UK-focussed in the references to types of listing and laws, the Guidance for different types of heritage is good).

Priority Tag to help identify cultural objects for evacuation in an emergency (English at the bottom). The tag marks objects that should be evacuated as a priority, and is easy to see thanks to its highly reflective surface. The design and all guidance is available open access online – as long as it is used in accordance with the rules for international emblems.
