Businesses use a variety of factors to determine the kind of commercial security systems that they require for protection. Some of the factors include the size and location of business premises, amount of cash and valuables stored on site, type of industry, and the human traffic within the facility. Conducting a security audit enables organizations to understand the influence that all these issues have on their security.

The Role of Employees in Business Security

Investing in the most advanced or expensive Business Security Systems rarely bears fruit ifCommercial Security Systems Suffolk County employees are not involved. Employees are the greatest resource in any organization. However, they may not be aware that they have a role to play in enhancing their security, as well as that of the business. Businesses can ensure that employees participate in security matters through awareness and training.

1.    Create Employee Awareness

Businesses should encourage employees to not only focus on their responsibilities, but also take an active role in safeguarding business property and lives. As they carry out their duties, employees are likely to come across various signs that indicate security threats or breaches. However, most employees tend to ignore these signs, especially if they are outside their areas.

Creating awareness among employees makes them the first line of defense in dealing with security challenges. Employees should be encouraged to, among other things:

  • Report any signs of disturbance within the facility
  • Investigate or report any strange happenings
  • Report any visitors or customers acting strangely
  • Inform management or security if strangers or intruders are spotted in private areas

2.    Employee Training

Quick action is very important when addressing security challenges. Therefore, businesses should train their employees on what to look out for, in order to detect security breaches. In addition, employees should know how to act or react in risky situations in order to safeguard human life and safety, as well as property. 

Employees should be trained on the procedures to follow in case of a threat. For instance, what should one do when an alarm is triggered? Should one report a security breach or confront the culprits?
