4 Tips for a Securer Workplace

Between theft, fraud and natural disasters, there are a number of things that can go wrong at your place of business. The good news is that you don't have to sit around and wait for the worst to happen. If you're ready to fight back against unfortunate circumstances, here are just four ways to give yourself a securer workplace.

1. Install Lights and Alarms

Put flood lights around your store to banish shadows and lurking spots. Have an alarm that will blare if anyone attempts to enter a confidential file room. You can even install sound, motion, heat and vibration sensors to be absolutely sure that no one gains access to an area that's off-limits. It all depends on how far that you're willing to go for peace of mind.

2. Hire Security Guards

The mere presence of security guards is often enough to scare away criminals. However, if you do find yourself as the victim of a robbery or assault, it can really pay off to have trained professionals around. Not only can they ensure the safety of yourself and your employees, but they can also save you from liability issues when it comes time to report the incident to your insurance company.

3. Get Digital

Stream your camera feeds to an off-site location so that the tapes can't be stolen. Install a biometric time clock that won't allow non-employees to punch in without the right fingerprint. It's the 21st century, and security technology has turned a corner in terms of speed, convenience and effectiveness. If you're still relying on gadgets that were made before the computer age, it's time for an upgrade.

4. Secure the Perimeter

This can be as simple as erecting a fence around your pizza place. It can also be as complicated as installing a laser grid around high-risk artifacts in your museum. It's up to you to decide how to best protect your property; just make sure that you're hiring the right people to put it in place. For example, if you're installing a fence, contact a high-quality chain link fencing manufacturer.

These are just a few ways to prevent burglary and tragedy around your place of business. Whether it's hiring a few security guards for your shop or installing brand-new surveillance equipment around the office, do whatever it takes to make yourself feel secure. Your livelihood could depend on it.
