Although there are various security systems that can be installed at your workplace, CCTVs are probably the best choice you can make.
Closed-circuit television (CCTv), or video surveillance, is the use of video cameras to dispatch a signal to a specific location, on a limited number of monitors. This security system offers a range of benefits at the workplace.
Let’s have a look at a few:
1. Deterring Crime
It is clear that video surveillance at your workplace will deter criminals from committing crimes as it indicates the place is guarded at all times. This enhances the safety of an office and allows everyone to feel at ease while working.
2. Monitoring Activity
Employers can keep an eye on their employees’ activities and ensure that no illegal activity occurs on the premises. CCTvs also allow you to keep an eye on the visitors at your workplace so both – the employer and the employees – can work in peace knowing the building is secure from intruders.
3. Collecting Evidence
In the unfortunate event of a crime actually occurring, CCTVs provide video footage immediately that serves as evidence against the criminal. This evidence is conclusive and is a less time-consuming manner of figuring out who was responsible. Thus, fraud and theft are minimised if not eliminated.
4. Increasing Accountability
Not only do CCTVs have obvious security benefits, they help increase the overall outcome of the office. When employees know they are being monitored, they are more likely to work well and not goof off. This not only boosts productivity but the constant surveillance ensures that employees are held accountable for any suspicious or unseemly activities. Employers also don’t need to excessively worry about monitoring their employees.
Sexual harassment is a big problem at the workplace. Having CCTVs installed at the office curbs employees from partaking in such activity as well and increases the sense of safety among the employees.
5. Securing Private Areas in the Building
Let’s say there is a place where all the sensitive documents are kept and are only to be accessed by limited personnel. CCTVs help ensure that no one apart from the authorised personnel access the area.
6. Keeping Records
By having a video record of who is entering and exiting the workplace, employers can keep track of their employees’ timings and ensure that their business is running smoothly.
7. Reducing Cost and Risk
CCTVs are a great investment to make at the workplace as they reduce the cost of management. They reduce the costs and risks associated with incidents such as burglary or fire.
Not only do CCTVs help deter crime but they ensure that safety is never compromised.
