Business owners have many responsibilities, including taking safety precautions to protect their employees and customers. If you own a business, are you doing what you need to keep everyone safe and secure? Even with security alarm monitoring systems installed, the Allstate Blog reported that 70 percent of business owners worry about the security of their companies, according to a study by the Ponemon Institute. Our staff at Unlimited Security wants you to feel secure about safety at your business, which is why we would like to share with you a few tips to help you take the right safety precautions.
Install extra smoke and carbon monoxide detector alarms.
Since most commercial building codes require that these types of alarms be installed, you most likely already have both smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your place of business. However, you can increase the safety of your employees and customers by adding extra alarms throughout the building. You can also upgrade your security monitoring system to include smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which will alert the necessary authorities immediately.
Use a fire-proof and waterproof safe.
To keep all of your important documents safe in case a disaster strikes your area, you need a safe that will not be damaged in a fire or flood. A safe is an excellent way to store employee files, tax documents, and other vital items to keep them from getting lost or damaged.
Consider adding surveillance cameras.
Unlimited Security can show you the available options of surveillance camera equipment, which is an excellent method of deterring crime. We have cameras that save recorded footage that you can rewind to a specific time, and we also have cameras that you can monitor when you are away from your business.
Be sure your computers are protected.
To keep your computers safe from hacking and viruses, you should have anti-virus software installed on each computer and update this software when necessary. You should also keep your operating system and web browsers updated to keep everything running smoothly.
