Safety is a constant concern in any business. Maintaining a safe workplace is important to your employees and the success of your business. There are many ways to protect your physical location. In addition to fire alarm systems, security cameras can deter theft and crime, monitor activity, help reduce insurance costs, and create a safer workplace.
Deter Theft and Crime
Criminals don’t commit crimes to get caught but to make a statement or profit. The presence of a camera or multiple cameras can be a deterrent to illegal behavior. People are less likely to commit a crime if they know they are being watched. This includes disgruntled employees who might be considering the destruction of property or stealing from your business. While unfortunate, this does happen, and cameras are one way to deter individuals from acting on those thoughts.
Security cameras are beneficial for monitoring operations and day-to-day activities of employees and visitors. They record evidence of punctuality issues and conflicts between employees. This can be especially helpful to businesses with multiple locations where the owner or operations manager is unable to be present at every moment of the day.
Reduce Insurance Costs
While not a guarantee, large insurers might offer a reduction in premium if there are security cameras connected to a central alarm station that is continually monitored. Monitoring allows the operator overseeing your account to dispatch the necessary fire, police, or medical personnel to mitigate your loss. If your business is vandalized or burglarized, security cameras can provide evidence to further legitimize your insurance claim.
Create a Safer Workplace
Deterring theft and crime with the presence of security cameras also creates a safe workplace for your employees. They don’t waste work time worrying about the safety of themselves or their vehicle in the parking lot. Harassment and inappropriate behavior can be addressed immediately with video evidence.
Professionally installed cameras can increase the safety of your business by deterring crime, monitoring operations, reducing insurance costs, and creating a safer workplace.
