Good advice from professionals says the tiers of safety need to be reviewed. Vulnerability comes from different directions, but doors and windows are the first front for security into buildings. Inside protection can mean alerts for separate areas, counters, and displays. Besides announcers to customer arrivals, movements, and exits, security planners understand the increased need to provide safety for staff members and associates.
Taking a tip from the experiences of businesses like 7-Eleven and Circle K puts everyone ahead in solving the first tier of alertness. 7-Eleven has mandated in their plans for any existing or new store the integration of Rodann’s TX/RX1000Ain their “specification sheet to all contractors that build new stores”. The first greeting comes from the door announcer that chimes for every entry! Entry door chimes whether for the front entrance or a back delivery door allow a notice to be given for all traffic. For loss prevention, fitting room alerts, customer traffic counters, display case alerts, as well as wandering alerts within a building or business can monitor electronically separate parts of the office, shop, or store. To assist caregivers helping with Alzheimer’s patients or monitoring activities in child-care centers, Hospice centers, and care homes, units like TX/RX1000A will monitor movement and can truly be like eyes around a corner.
Lastly, to begin to engineer controls and workplace security, steps to take that will assist businesses begin with improved visibility, maintaining adequate lighting, installing video equipment, use of door detectors, controlling access to the store with door buzzers, and using silent and personal alarms. Specific questionnaires through studies by OSHA can help owners to evaluate the security net they are providing for themselves, their associates and customers, and the premises of the business.
