If you want to make sure that your work space is a safe one for your staff, let alone yourself, then there are many ways you can do so.
Keep it confidential
All important documents and files should be kept locked away in a safe place. Whether that actually be a safe, or a drawer or cabinet, it shouldn’t be able to be accessed by just anyone. This will not only protect you and your company but your employees too. Even something simple as a home address, name and number can put your staff at risk, so don’t let anything like that be left around for anyone to see.
You should also get a shredder (if you haven’t already) so that you can destroy any paper trail. Throwing it out simply isn’t enough because believe it or not, criminals will go through trash cans.
You must ensure you take the correct precautions when it comes to fire safety. It is important to keep on top of your fire risk assessments on a regular basis, and all of your staff should know how to properly evacuate the building, and also know how to use a fire extinguisher if need be.
You must have a fire exist that has absolutely no obstruction in the way, along with a big sign above the door so it can be seen at all times, even if the lights are off.
You may also want to invest in a sprinkler system that will automatically turn on when the sensor is activated. It’s important to regularly check these though as sometimes they can wear out and no longer work as they should. Get in touch with a corrosion engineering firm so they can come and take a look if you have any doubts.
Don’t leave messes on the floor
Loose cables, handbags, and spilled drinks can all cause your staff to have a nasty fall; some can even risk causing themselves some serious injury. To make sure you keep a safe environment within your workspace, you should set out guidelines that everyone can follow. Make sure you have things on hand like tissue, towels, and mops to clean any spillage that may occur. Keep all the loose cables tied up and out of the way so people can’t trip over them, and invest in coat hangers and hooks so people have a suitable place to put their belongings.
If you are getting your office cleaned out, make sure that the appropriate signs are being used, so for example if the floor is wet – use a wet floor sign.
Get some alarms
Nowadays the alarm systems do so much more than just making a noise. They usually come with cameras now that send you live feeds. So you can leave the office, and be able to watch what activity is going on while you’re not there – not only on the outside but inside too. The alarm will alert you if the sensors have picked up anything suspicious, and you will be given the option to call for immediate assistance or not.
