One of the most important things behind better workplace efficiency is better employee safety. When people don’t have to worry about whether or not they’re safe in the building, they can spend more time excelling at their actual jobs.
So, what are some key solutions that can help maximize employee safety? Don’t worry, we’ve got some tips.
To keep everyone in the buildings safe, you need to keep track of everyone that’s actually in the building. There’s almost countless camera systems and technologies on the market today, but it’s important to make sure you’re getting one that’s right for your business. When you’re setting up camera surveillance, a crucial area you’ll want to focus on is anywhere people are going into and leaving the building.
That way, if something happens, you’ll be able to see who was inside the building and who has left. And if you have occupancy limits, you can even install camera systems specifically designed to keep count of how many people are inside.
Cameras are just as big of a vindicator as they are an incriminator. By placing cameras in areas where employees are interacting with customers, you’re helping ensure that your business and employees are protected. These systems can also help you better arrange different things within the building to improve security and even improve customer experience.
The information gathered from these different camera systems can also provide key data to inform business decisions. They can give you a bird’s eye view of what areas of your buildings are heavily trafficked and some can even generate heat maps of building traffic.
A reliable access control system helps make sure that only people that are supposed to be in the building get into the building. In today’s world, it’s not uncommon to have contractors or freelance workers accessing your facility. With the right access control system, you can make sure that they’re only going into parts of the building where they’re supposed to go.
And of course, these systems also help make sure that outsiders can’t access your building without your consent.
A good access control system and a dependable intrusion system are almost two sides of the same coin. While access control is primarily used during business hours to protect employees, an intrusion system keeps watch after hours.
Just like a standard residential security system, these commercial intrusion solutions can help provide peace-of-mind not just for building managers, but for every employee that goes into work.
Fire Detection Systems
There’s a reason that every building is supposed to have emergency exit routes planned for fires. Fire safety is paramount when it comes to ensuring a safe workplace for employees. And while those safety routes are important, it’s also vital to have a fire detection system that you can trust.
These detection systems give your employees the most amount of time possible to safely exit the building while also giving people confidence that they’ll know if something’s wrong.
While all of these systems and solutions are important individually, true employee safety happens when they work as a unified security front. Partnering with experienced integrators allows you to perfectly weave together any security solution in your facility so that you can get comprehensive coverage and insightful data points for your business.
