It’s extremely important to ensure that your office is secure at all times for the safety of your company and your employees. Below, we’ve come up with our top tips to help you improve your office security.
Put Security Systems in Place
One of the best ways to improve your office security is to have security systems installed to prevent intruders. CCTV cameras are very common to have installed in your business’ building; these can be installed both on the inside and outside of the building. Access control systems are also great for preventing access from intruders; fingerprint access is becoming a lot more common in offices.
Wear ID Badges
ID badges are great for office security, especially in larger businesses where there are lots of people walking around. You’ll be able to see who is an employee and who is a guest; if somebody is not wearing a badge, this can immediately give a sign that they are an intruder. Ensure that all employee ID badges have their full name and a picture. In addition to this, make sure that you also get guest badges.
Keep everything in your office secure with a lock! Keep all files locked in a filing cabinet, especially confidential paperwork. Further to this, if you’ve got files ready for shredding, lock them in a box until they’re ready to be shredded. Make sure all systems such as computers are locked with passwords and ensure that passwords are never shared. If nobody is in the office, lock all of the doors and windows, even if you’re just popping out.
Don’t Stay Alone
Don’t leave people working alone in the office, especially late at night. If it is absolutely necessary for employees to work late, ensure that there is someone else working with them as it’s very common for crimes to occur at night rather than during the day.
