If you’ve been keeping up with our blog, we’ve had a lot of recent posts about the evolution of security systems. We even related the archaeological periods to security since the first tools that were used for self-protection were created during this time. Then, we jumped to more modern times and provided a brief history of business security systems.
We now live in an era where our safety is seemingly at risk everywhere we go. The average full-time employee in America reports working 34.4 hours a week, which is the most out of several of the largest economies.
While that doesn’t sound like a lot, it should be put into the context that not every full-time employee works the standard 9-5 and many places of employment like Kroger, Walmart, and gas stations operate 24 hours a day. This means that workplace threats can happen anywhere at any time.
Panic Buttons Create Safer, Less-Stressful Work Environments
No matter how many hours an employee works a week, everyone has the right to feel safe at work and employers have the responsibility of ensuring their safety. If employees are concerned about safety, the fastest way to gain their trust back is to install a panic button they can quickly and discretely press in the event of an emergency. Read our blog, panic buttons to the rescue, to see how they work and to read about how one of our buttons ensured the safety of a mini-mart employee.
Panic buttons aren’t restricted to use in security threats only. Any emergencies, including medical, call for the use of a panic button. Our security surveillance technicians are one press away in the case of an emergency. They will be alerted and can immediately send help your way to prevent the situation from becoming more dangerous.
Panic buttons are ideal to install in schools, healthcare facilities, government organizations, as well as charities and any other organizations where staff interacts with members of the public. If there’s a need for better security, panic buttons are the perfect solution. They can easily be integrated into your current security system as well. Contact us to learn more.
