How To Make Sure Your Office Is Safe

Just because you are a business owner doesn’t mean that you own the actual office that you are paying for. Business premises have to be safe, as this will ensure that people want to come and work for you. No one wants to feel as if they cannot be safe while they are at work, and if your staff are starting to complain about that, you have to pay attention.

The office should be a haven and this should be for your equipment as well as your staff. From making sure that you have a good property management team to back you when you have concerns, to ensuring that you put all of the effort on security internally, you need to make sure that your office is safe.

When you rented the space, you would have met a team to discuss the locks and security options of the premises, and here are some of the other ways that you can make sure that your office is safe.

Make sure that you know how to use the alarm system. Think about which alarms you need in your office or if there are already alarms there. If there are, you can ensure that your alarms transmit emergency signals via mobile phone. Some systems have two-way intercom, and this will keep your staff safe should the alarms go off.

Check the locks. Yoru property management team should have taken you through every lock and key before you signed the contract. If they did that, great, but you need to make sure that every single window and door is secure. If there are external gates, you should think about increasing their lock systems, too.

Utilize lighting. Your office and your parking garage is going to be much safeer with the right lighting. Did you know that 60% of burglaries take place in the evening or at night time, but with the right security lighting installed, you can keep everyone safe? Well lit stairwells and car parking spaces will ensure that people feel safe when they are moving from place to place around the office.

Use cameras. CCTV will help to keep people in your office safe. Not only that, but CCTV acts as a deterrent. They aren’t the only part of the security system needed for your home. They are a piece of the puzzle and you can use them in conjunction with other things. Cameras will help you to see when someone is coming and they’ll help you to catch perpetrators!

Lock your equipment. You can buy lockable desks and cabinets that are perfect for your computers and laptops. These can be put away every single day by your team and you will be able to keep them away from others and they can’t be stolen when you lock them up. Making sure that your office is safe is important and this is one of the ways to do that. 

Safety first, always, especially where your employees are concerned!
