Theft, Fires and Disasters

Just because your business is closed doesn’t make it resistant to natural disasters. Even dormant operations are vulnerable to things like the ignition of chemicals in storage, electrical shorts in automated equipment, or a broken main. And therefore the damage might be worse than during the day because nobody is there to prevent it early.

Location Risks

Among the location hazards facing a business are nearby fires, floods, and other natural disasters. Employees should be familiar with the streets leading in and out of the neighborhood on all sides of the place of business. Individuals should keep sufficient fuel in their vehicles to drive out of and away from the area.

After-Hours Workers Are at Risk

Most businesses have staff who need to work in the off hours at least some of the time. Your production crew might need to prepare for the holiday sale season. Accounting staff might need to work late closing the books. Or your management team may need to brainstorm over some company challenge. Whatever the reason to have late night or weekend workers, the company must keep them safe.

The way your employees use the site after hours determines the best approach to security. You might provide live camera monitoring to virtually walk employees to their cars or to check in on lone employees in their offices. If an entire team needs to work in the evening, adjust security patrols to provide helpful officers to watch out for them. And access control ensures that employees are safe from intruders.
