Security tips for small businesses
Keeping a business safe often requires a multi-level safety system that can include security cameras, employee verification technology and other measures or checkpoints.
As a business owner, maintaining the safety of employees is of vital importance. Should an incident or emergency occur in the workplace, programming emergency numbers on speed dial in all office telephones will allow an individual to call for help more quickly. Having the ability to call with a single push of a button, rather than needing to dial 9-1-1 or look up local emergency numbers, can hasten emergency support in a situation where every second counts.
Many businesses and office buildings implement identification card systems to prevent unwanted individuals from entering the premises. When hired, every employee is given an identification card with their picture and a barcode. To gain access to the building, employees simply swipe their card through a reader at the front door.
Businesses use many important electronics, and should a theft occur, it is important to always maintain an up-to-date list of these devices. Record the make, model and serial numbers of all printers, computers, monitors and photocopiers to help make an accurate claim should an incident occur.
