3 Tips For Creating a Safe Work Environment With a Business Security System

July 19, 2018

As a business owner, you know that your team works best when everyone feels like a valued, trusted member of the team. When it comes to the safety of your place of business, being proactive could mean everything should there be a robbery or natural disaster.

Here are a few tips for creating a safe work environment for you and your employees.


1. Do safety drills.

You’ll be thankful you took the time should an incident happen. Go over emergency procedures for fires, tornados, and more. Consider assembling a safety team and appoint a leader so you know certain steps will be taken in the event of an emergency.

If you are unsure how to plan safety procedures for your place of business, ask your local fire department during their inspection.


2. Install floodlights.

This is especially helpful if you have employees who work odd hours. Flood Lights provide safety and comfort to the employees coming and going at night.

Looking for the best place to put floodlights? Ask our team! We install security cameras. So we know what areas need protection — surveillance or lighting — and what areas are safe.


3. Use access control.

Even small businesses benefit from access control. Limiting access to your place of business lets you know who is coming and going and at what times. It might seem inconvenient for the employees, maybe even awkward for guests. It is worth it. People today understand the need for safety procedures and are used to allowing for the extra time it takes to go through them.

Another bonus to having access control to your place of business is that your employees will be equipped with a badge for access. They have something on them that identifies them as employees. They can recognize coworkers that they’ve never met before, knowing they haven’t just run into a guest in the hallway.
