Protect Your Business With These Office Security Tips
Your office or retail building is susceptible to thefts and vandalism—just like your home. But many business owners don’t know how to properly secure their building or prepare for emergency situations. To make sure your office is as safe as your home, follow these office security tips and contact BTV Systems for a safety consultation.
Create an office security plan and review it periodically as a staff
A safety plan will ensure that each employee knows exactly what to do in the event of an emergency. Your office security plan should include:
- Emergency escape procedures and routes
- Procedures for employees who remain on site after the alarm sounds
- Procedures to account for employees
- Rescue and medical duties
- Procedures for reporting an emergency
- Emergency contact information
- Procedures for evacuating the premises
Practice the office security plan
To ensure that every employee knows what to do in the event of a fire, natural disaster, break-in, or other emergency, practice the office security plan regularly. Employees should know where every emergency exit is, where to wait for emergency personnel, and what their duties are in the event of an emergency.
Keep Valuables Secure
Employees should keep their valuables locked out of sight in filing cabinets, cars, or other secure areas. Important items and documents pertaining to your business should be locked in a fire-proof safe stored away from windows and doors. Bolting the safe to the floor will keep your company’s important items and documents even more secure.
