Four Ways to Improve Business Safety


Safety has always been an area of concern, but especially today it's important to take all the precautions you can. Although safety is a big issue, we have more ways to add onto security systems than ever before. From the building, to equipment, to employees themselves, safety needs to be priority #1. Solar Art came up with four simple tips that will help keep your office secure:

1. Regularly shred papers


Shredding paper is extremely important, especially in a business setting. No matter what type of industry you are in, your company most likely has many important documents like account numbers, tax ID numbers, bills, etc. If those numbers get out or get in the hands of the wrong person, the consequences can be detrimental. If your company is still using loose paper, whether it's daily, weekly or monthly, plan time in your schedule to regularly shred important documents that could have any information that may breach the security of your business. You could even switch over to electronic systems to get rid of loose paper all together. 

2. Install security window film


Like we mentioned earlier, there are so many different security precautions you can take to protect your business. Security window film is a precaution that is easy and affordable, but unfortunately a lot of people don't even know it exists. Security window film can reduce the likelihood of an intruder breaking in by making the glass up to three times stronger. Security film helps keep the glass together if someone or something tries to break through it. When tinted window security film is installed, it makes it more difficult to see inside, so potential intruders aren't able to see into your business and see other security systems or alarms that they may try to work around. It also protects day-to-day business activities, habits of employees, and visibility of valuable equipment that may be in the building.

3. Put locks on everything that contains important information


Using locks might seem obvious, but it's shocking how many business don't have locks incorporated in their security systems. Lock all file cabinets, drawers, doors both inside and outside of the office and anything else that holds remotely valuable items. In the case of a break-in, at least you can have peace of mind that your important documents are protected. It is also really important to have passwords on electronics in the office to protect any information stored on them. When it comes to passwords, the more complex the better and be sure to change them regularly so no one can  hack into your systems. 

4. Install security cameras 


Again, seems like another obvious one, right? Installing security cameras on both the interior and exterior of your business can really up your security game. They are affordable and can be discreetly hidden so intruders won't know they are there and the aesthetics of your business stays the same. In the off chance there is a break-in, you will be able to catch the culprit.
