Large facilities, such as warehousing and manufacturing facilities have a similar security profile and similar considerations where security is concerned. Due to the size of their facilities, effective security precautions are an investment that should be carefully considered, and options compared, before installing a system that is a poor fit for their daily operations. The scale of these facilities and typically large inventory of products or materials means that losses often occur on a larger scale, resulting in serious financial losses and the further cost of security program upgrades.

Getting it Right the First Time

The least expensive security systems aren’t likely to provide the value your business needs, and the most expensive security program and technology available may cause more confusion and frustration than necessary if the system is not suited to your particular circumstances. It’s important to take the time to discuss your security needs with at least one security professional before making a decision about whether to implement surveillance, voice and audio features, digital tracking programs or in-person security guards.

Your security professional will want to know about the current security measures in place, so take some time before meeting to review your concerns. If internal or external theft has been occurring, take note of the scale of the loss and how the thieves gained access to the building. Be ready to speak about the facility’s size, location, materials handled and employee numbers. If possible, consult with your security professional in person to allow them to make an informed determination about your facility’s potential points of failure in security and what options are available to you.

Your interest in advancing your security system may provide benefits that you hadn’t anticipated. Not only will increased security protect your building from the efforts of thieves who want access to valuable materials, but it will further support your employees in feeling safe and increases accountability for all staff. For example, video surveillance can identify a crime in process, but it can also provide footage of an employee in the process of stealing or who is in a medical crisis.

Internal theft is often responsible for financial and inventory loss in warehousing and manufacturing environments, and it can be very difficult to identify a suspect without a security program in place that includes video surveillance. A dedicated security guard can monitor your video surveillance and can be detaining the thief or providing CPR in a matter of minutes – before law enforcement arrives.

About Condo & Residential Security

Internal theft is often responsible for financial and inventory loss in warehousing and manufacturing environments, and it can be very difficult to identify a suspect without a security program in place that includes video surveillance. A dedicated security guard can monitor your video surveillance and can be detaining the thief or providing CPR in a matter of minutes – before law enforcement arrives.

Employees who work through the night are often uncomfortable walking through a dark parking lot to get to their vehicles. Your security guard is committed to the safety of your staff and will provide escort services as needed. Our security professionals provide a variety of services including:

Perimeter Control – Regular foot patrols around the facility to identify any security concerns.

Visitor and Delivery Screening – Your environment is a busy one. With so many employees, vendors and contractors, it can be easy to overlook the need to document visitors or screen deliveries.

Inventory Control – Inventory is at the heart of any successful warehouse or manufacturing business. Your security professional monitors your inventory and ensures that concerns are resolved before they become problematic for your business.

Gatehouse Operation – In this capacity, a professional guard documents all people and vehicles which are allowed onto your site and denies entry to those without legitimate business there. A terminated employees list should be up to date and available to your gatehouse attendant in order to restrict their access to your facility.

What You Can Do

While you are considering changes to your security program, there are things that business owners can do to deter criminals. First, ensure that all facility areas are lit. This includes parking lots, corridors, stairwells and entry/exit points. A thief is much less likely to risk being seen when they are visible under bright lights. Ensure that your landscaping is maintained and that there are no shrubs to hide behind or trees touching the building. This is important because by accessing the facility by climbing a tree to the roof or into a window, criminals circumvent many of the security precautions in place to limit unlawful entry.

It is as important to control who can enter the building as it is to limit employee access to areas of the facility that are unnecessary, or which hold very high value items or intellectual property. Digital access cards and fobs allow you to easily customize the access your employees have to areas of your facility throughout the day. The fewer places there are to access, the fewer there are places to hide. Finally, post signage at each entry point into the building that communicates that the area is being monitored, and back it up with a physical camera that can deter those who consider calling your bluff.
