Office Security

TEN POINTS TO REMEMBER

1
Never leave handbags on desks or wallets in coats in your absence. Take them with you or lock them away.
2
Always keep money in a safe place. Even if it is only the coffee fund, never leave it in an unlocked drawer during the day. And at night, put it in a safe or remove it from the building altogether.
3
Be careful with keys. Always put them in a safe place and don’t put spare keys for safes, etc., in desk drawers. Secure them elsewhere.
4
Don’t except that a stranger is authorized to be in the building just because he says so. Check with someone in authority. If the stranger is from the Post Office or the typewriter company, someone in your office should know. Never allow anyone to remove office equipment without checking first.
5
Never assume a stranger wandering in the building is a member of the staff, Challenge him. Even “Can I help you?” will often deter the dishonest.
6
Don’t be intimidated by visitors. If the person wants to see an employee, make sure that person is announced and expected.
7
Never leave visitors alone in your office. Verify if someone can see the visitor.
8
Don’t disclose confidential information to anyone. No matter how important the person may seem, always report any such request for information to your supervisor.
9
Don’t assume all are as honest as you. Safeguard your property and that of the employer.
10
Lock all doors in your absence. It’s easy to forget and a thief can come and go in a couple of minutes.
