How often do you perform workplace security audits?

by Kayla 5. February 2013 02:05
Kayla
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.

Print ID cards in seconds!

by Kelli 18. December 2012 10:13
Kelli
Creating a professional ID card is easier than it sounds, and it doesn’t take someone in your IT department to put the printer system together! IDville specializes in ID card printers that anyone in your organization can feel confident using. In addition to increasing security and helping project a professional image, ID card printers are extremely easy to use! 

Invest less time and money: An ID card printer saves you time and hassle unlike other pieces of technology. Before converting to an ID card printer, many organizations print paper badges, cut them out, and laminate each one individually. This is a time consuming process compared to the quick print job an ID card printer can do. 

Easy features: In addition to creating professional-looking IDs, the ID Maker software that comes with IDville systems enables you to streamline other processes at your organization. You can use the program to create a directory, for program data, and to quickly print reprint cards.

Simple set-up: Getting the ID Maker printer system set-up is simple. All you have to do is install the ID Maker Software and plug in the equipment. It’s that easy! There are no complicated set-up instructions. We have plenty of resources available for you at our Knowledge Center to help you become the expert at printing IDs. 

Lifetime support: Even though it’s simple to use your ID card printers, it’s common to have questions, too. At IDville, lifetime technical support is included in the purchase of your ID card printer. If you ever need assistance with your printer, help is only a phone call away!

What makes a good employee ID card?

by david 4. December 2012 11:45
david
This month’s newsletter was focused on what elements make a good employee ID card. Depending on how your company utilizes employee ID cards may determine how you create and print your employee’s IDs. You’ll want to consider whether you plan to use ID cards for security purposes, for door access, or simply for identification. 

Creating the right ID card is imperative to achieving your photo identification goals. By considering the following 5 elements, you can create ID cards that meet your goals. 

1. Design
What information is critical to display on your ID? With dual-sided cards you have the option to add additional important information to the back of the card, such as emergency contact information or a company mission statement.  If it’s not as critical to have extra space, then single-sided ID cards are recommended. 

2. Versatility 
Where will your ID cards be used? Before determining the orientation of your cards, consider how they will be used i.e. access control, time and attendance, or solely for identification purposes. 

Ensure the safety of your students!
3. Orientation
Do you want your employee IDs to be vertical or horizontal? Once you’ve decided the purpose of your ID cards, you can then determine the orientation of your card as this will impact how you wear and display your ID card. 

4. Organization Logo
Visual security elements, such as a logo, are highly recommended if you have security goals in place around employee ID cards. Be sure that the card design is consistent with your marketing and branding (font, logo, and colors) to ensure you’re projecting a professional and consistent image. 

5. Employee Picture
It’s standard for ID cards to include a picture on the front of the card for identification purposes. The photo makes it unique to the individual employee and is easily visible.
