Kaysville, UT (PRWEB) April 9, 2008
As violence in the workplace and in schools increases, precautionary measures to protect students and employees must also be increased. Institutions without preventative security are vulnerable to intruder violence. Every private school, office, call center, warehouse, agency, or government building should have ID cards for their employees, magnetic readers to validate the ID cards and a method of identifying and regulating visitors.
ID cards and magnetic readers are not pricey, but could prove to be priceless. Most students or employees do not mind carrying an ID card when it's for their own protection. The measures that good employers take to ensure their employees' collective safety are much more effective and practical than the measures that employees take to ensure their individual safety.
Almost all places of business have an electric "clock in" device. Therefore, using an ID card to punch in or out and wearing it during the shift would not be a drastic change. A simple clip or lanyard (worn around the neck) will verify that every person in the building is supposed to be there.
Unless it's at the pentagon, managers probably aren't worried about indefinitely-funded groups of international terrorists attacking them at work. Most places don't need to monitor the air space around them for incoming planes and missiles, but some people with whom they do need to be concerned are disgruntled employees, former spouses or boyfriends/girlfriends, unstable customers or clients and violent family members of employees.
Anyone can research the number of violent crimes that have taken place in a business or scholastic setting. What they won't find is the number of violent crimes that DID NOT take place because the would-be perpetrator was denied access into the building. ID House (http://www.idhouse.com) professionals encourage employers to evaluate their current security situations and ask themselves, if they are more likely to adhere to the statistics...or to become one?"
