Making sure your employees feel safe and secure is key in creating a comfortable workplace where work can get done without the fear of someone suspicious coming through the front door.
An access control system can help in making sure those who are authorized to be your in business are in, and those who aren’t, are kept out. So what is an access control system? In layman’s terms, it’s an electronic way of restricting access to a building or a specific area of it. This means you can control who gets inside of the building — and even leaves it — and lock certain doors inside of the building as well.
While not every business may need an access control system, those who may need it can see some benefits.
If your business has an inventory of products with street value, there is a possibility of a rogue employee trying to make a profit off them, or of an outsider trying to break in to steal them. Businesses such as pharmacies, hospitals or clinics deal with pharmaceutical drugs being taken away every day. To avoid thefts of these kind, an access control system can help keep track of who is entering and leaving the building, as well as tracking the entry and exit of individual employees.
If your business holds sensitive information or items, you want to make sure only the right employee with the proper cleanse have access to the area it is located in. With an access control system, a business can limit access to those specific areas, and control who is allowed to go in. Any business that has secure data should consider implementing an access control system.
With an access control system in place, you are able to control who is allowed to enter designated areas. Say you run a clinic that has a room with pharmaceutical drugs with street value. By securing that area to only a number of trusted employees, you limit the ability of non-authorized employees to go inside and steal the items. In addition to storing away valued products, if your business has any hazardous chemicals or equipments it works with, closing that off to only a few people also limits the ability to get into any unwanted accidents.
If an employee quits and does not return their keys, the business is then tasked with the expense of either creating new keys or even going as far as to change the locks. With an access control system, the business is then able to simply remove the former employee’s access to the building. If someone loses their key to the building, the business can simply reissue a new card for the employee.
If your business has multiple locations, it can be difficult to track the security of each individual site. Having a centralized security system, such as an access control panel, that is easily customizable can allow you to control the security of each location.
