Keeping a warehouse running smoothly during the work day, can be difficult. People who shouldn’t be onsite in specific areas in the first place (such as non-employees) cost warehouses and manufacturing plants big money every day. Aside from people with proper training and gear, access to specialized areas needs control —this includes employees who work elsewhere in the facility. Limiting access at a facility and allowing no exceptions for friends, family members or anyone else who is not on site to perform a specific task can limit/prevent:
- Employee injury
- Loss of productivity
- Equipment damage
- Inventory theft
Whether it be keeping track of visitors coming into the building or keeping track of what areas employees should have access to, Safe Systems, Inc. (SSI) has everything you need. With a key card access system in place, customers can have the ability to restrict areas based on specific privileges for each employee. Imagine a warehouse that has a designated room which houses sensitive material. Without a card access system, employees may be allowed to enter this sensitive area without restraint. Putting a card access system in place will permit only authorized individuals to have permission to enter.
Access/Video Intercom systems are also a big help when it comes to keeping track of visitors in your building. With these systems in place, visitors will first need permission to enter the building; then allowing business owners the choice of designating what areas they will be able to come in once they have gained access to the building. Maintaining employee safety and Safeguarding inventory goes hand in hand with Access and Intercom systems. Making sure to keep visitors and employees only in designated areas can create a safer and more profitable warehouse operation.
Another addition that can be useful in warehouses is security camera systems. With a camera system in place, business owners can monitor any part of their warehouse that they feel fit. For example, with a camera system using a digital video recorder (DVR), business owners can go back to recorded saved material when necessary. Some DVR’s will store up to 45 days of footage. This footage allows the ability to go back and view a break-in, an accident that occurred on site, or even keep an eye on productivity during the workday.
Some camera systems even allow business owners instant notification when motion occurs in a particular area. With a video-verification system, short clips transmit to our onsite central station monitoring center for the validity of an alarm. These clips allow our operators to see firsthand what activity is occurring on site and communicate to first responders precisely what is happening on site before they arrive at the premises. These systems not only give an accurate look at activity from within, but they also aid in decreasing false alarms.
Along with access and cameras systems, keeping your warehouse monitored 24/7/365 is not only crucial for business safety, but it helps in preventing significant losses that may occur due to fire damage. SSI can install, service, and inspect commercial fire alarm systems. All of our commercial fire and smoke alarm systems are UL listed. With a monitored fire system, our central station monitoring center can dispatch local fire authorities as soon as an alarm signal is received. SSI also offers monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, and annual fire alarm inspections. Keeping a fire alarm inspected and serviced aids in assuring that all aspects of the fire alarm system will function properly if a fire were to occur. If SSI finds any discrepancies during an inspection, our service department can make any repairs necessary to get the system running 100%.
As a business in the industry for over 37 years, SSI recognizes the importance of keeping all aspects of business protected. We have witnessed many cases of unauthorized individuals gaining access to buildings, fires, and theft. With knowledge of many different scenarios, our Commercial Security Consultants can guide business owners in picking a system that matches their specific needs.
