In a short amount of time, most businesses will be shutting down their business for the holiday season. It’s a wonderful time for friends and family, great food, and downtime. It is also a time when thefts and robberies spike. With a Sonitrol security system, you can prevent further damage by an intruder with our camera system or audio detection; however, there are a few measures you can take to protect your employees and business.
Safety Tips for Your Business & Employees
- Keep it clean. Keep your windows and doors free of winter debris, such as fallen branches or piles of snow and ice. This minimizes the spaces where sneaky crooks my disguise themselves and allows for police officers to accurately check your business.
- Minimize valuables. Remember the Grinch, as he snuck out boxes and bags and burglarized all the families in Whoville? Well, save yourself the heartache by minimizing the cash kept in registers around the holidays, and removing seemingly expensive items, such as electronics, out of sight from easily tempted Grinches.
- Use the Buddy System. If your diligent employees are working like little elves into the night, make sure they are working in pairs. Check out our blog on parking garage safety for extra tips. Always encourage employees to have a buddy that hangs around or is aware when the other comes and goes.
- Security System. If you have been on the fence about a business security system, register for our free security assessment.
