Security is one of the things you always have to focus on your daily life, including in your workplace. Your office should be a safe place where to answer phone calls and emails, make inquiries, schedule meetings. In short, your office should be a safe place to work, no matter what. However, security problems may occur while working, or even when you are not present in your office.
Your safety is paramount, but you should pay attention to your office security as well, so your coworkers or employees can work without any disturbance. Another thing to keep in mind is that not all of the problems could be external, like a thief breaking into your office and threatening to damage you, your coworkers/employees, or office property. Security issues may also be internal, with a coworker/employee stealing supplies or information from you, or even more awful actions like harassing other coworkers.
Here are some measures you should follow to improve your office security:
Enough cameras and light for 24/7 vigilance: Having an office where many important and maybe classified documents around, is a very delicate subject these days, since issues, like data theft, armed robbery, or vandalism can happen in or around your workplace. Having cameras to monitor all that happens at your office is a great way to improve security, even when you are not there to watch over i1t.
IDs for everyone: With office identifications, you can track people’s arrivals and exits from the office, since they must be presented to security personnel when they come to the office, while they are at it, and when they leave it. Also, security personnel can check if someone is an unauthorized or unannounced visitor.
Protect your personal belongings, and your employees’: It is awful when you leave something on your desk or any place in your office, and realize it is not there anymore because someone took it. Keep an eye on your things every time, and teach other people to do the same. One thing you can also do to prevent problems is installing locking cabinets, file desks, and cupboards. That way, only people from your office can access their things.
Keep communications open: The lines must be open to all the people at the office, in case someone needs to inform something urgent to security or management, or even among coworkers. Communication options also must be available for unexpected events, like fire alarms or an emergency phone booth to inform all the personnel they need to evacuate the office.
