The security franchise broke down the risks of employee theft in a recent blog post, offering customers two key methods of prevention.
In a recent blog post offering two key suggestions, Jackson Fire and Security’s first was the installation of an access control system. The security franchise said that, “No matter what size premises you have, access control systems can be used to improve building safety and security. Access control enables businesses to manage who can be in their premises, at what times they can be in it, and whereabouts they can go.”
There are many different access control systems on the market and available for installation by Jackson Fire and Security, all the way from “basic non-integrated systems, such as door keypads that require a code” to “networked systems that operate using card proximity readers and biometric technology”. These systems “can also be integrated to work with time and attendance systems and CCTV cameras, giving greater visibility of employees’ movements and improving security even more”.
Which leads into the franchise’s section suggestion for mitigating the risk of employee theft - the installation of a CCTV system. According to Jackson Fire and Security, “[CCTV] has an important role to play as a deterrent, but can also be used to detect any dishonest acts that are occurring in the workplace. The footage it captures can also be used to provide evidence if there’s a criminal prosecution, or for any disciplinary action that takes place - including dismissal.”
Like access control systems, CCTV systems come in all shapes and sizes, but a qualified installer and security expert like Jackson Fire and Security should always be on hand to “guide you towards suitable models that will provide the level of coverage you need, identify vulnerable areas where cameras should be sited, and advise you about carrying out a CCTV data protection impact assessment”.
