How often do you perform workplace security audits?

by Kayla 5. February 2013 02:05
Conducting a regular workplace security audit will keep your security policies up to date and your employees safe. Ideally, you want to answer "yes" to each of the following questions. If you answer "no" to any of them, identify it as a vulnerable area and develop a task force to begin researching security solutions.

This workplace security audit checklist is designed to be a general checklist that can be applied to many types of organizations and industries. As you conduct the audit, be sure to consider your personal situation. You will need to address additional issues depending on your location, employees and nature of business.
Workplace Security Audit Checklist

1. Do you have an established workplace security policy?
Include a security policy in your employee handbook that outlines security policies and procedures.

2. Have employees received security training?
All employees, not only security and human resources, should understand safety and security policies and procedures. Trained employees should watch for activity that violates security policies and know how to properly report it.

3. Is access to the building restricted or monitored?
Workplaces should prevent admitting individuals who don’t belong in the building by monitoring all entrances. Most workplaces lock all entrances except for those monitored by an employee.

Do It Yourself Office Identification

by todd 20. July 2011 09:04

Do It Yourself (DIY) projects are usually less expensive than hiring a professional and often get completed quicker. When it comes to identification, there are many things you can do yourself to save time and money, too. With the right tools, you can create professional-looking signs, name tags, and ID cards that will impress even the keenest eye!

Shop ClearkLook Office SignsWall Signs.
Post directional signs and label key rooms and offices with wall signs. You can design and print signs from your own computer using our popular ClearLook office signs. Sandwich your printout between two pieces of clear acrylic and hang it yourself for a sign that visitors will think was created professionally.

Name Tags.
If you’re in a customer-focused industry, your employees most likely wear nametags. Reduce your nametag investment with Quick Print Name Tags and create a label of the employees’ name and apply it to the name tag. Name tags are engraved with your logo or your choice of graphic. You’ll be able to instantly make name tags for new employees and reuse old name tags, too!

ID Cards.
The ultimate DIY identification tool is a photo ID card printer. Using ID Maker software, you can create photo ID cards on the spot for employees, visitors, contractors and volunteers. Once you have your photo ID card printer set up, you’ll find many additional uses for it! You can create labels, make wallet size info cards and design ID cards for events.

Office Identification

The dreaded Employee ID badge…

by Falon 14. July 2011 09:38

Many of us are required to wear our employee ID badge at all times while working. If you’re anything like me, or if your employees are anything like me, they fight tooth and nail to try to get away without wearing their badge – why?

Well, for me it’s an issue of “This badge reel doesn’t go with my outfit.” Or, “I’d rather wear a fashionable necklace than this boring, scratchy lanyard.” Our accessories are what set us apart from the rest of the world, especially in a uniform environment. It’s the way we show our personality at work – and a flat woven breakaway royal blue lanyard with a clip just isn’t cutting the mustard!

Shop IDville's Fashion Accessories!

So when I found these fashionable – not gaudy – beaded lanyards and embellished badge reels, I was so excited I had to add them to the IDville product line! The silver spring beaded lanyard is my favorite – it goes with anything and dresses it up with a classy touch of silver and glass beads. If I’m feeling colorful, I’ll grab my frosted fun beaded lanyard for the day. The snap strap makes it so easy to interchange my ID with my lanyard selection to fit my outfit for the day.

Check out all of our fashion accessories today! Whether you’re buying for yourself or for your team, you’ll be glad you did!
