8 Ways Security Systems Can Make Facilities Safer and Healthier
Security systems typically may not be viewed as a go-to solution as part of a strategy to create a healthier building environment compared to cleaning procedures or air quality improvements. When using the right security systems and procedures, security professionals have the ability to support goals in achieving safer and healthier buildings:
Prepare. Validate that the facility meets the latest industry standards as well as any organization- and/or region-specific safety policies.
Monitor. Examine occupant safety and space usage in real time.
Reduce. Enforce social-distancing and mask-wearing measures.
Respond. Create a way to rapidly react to alerts, changing conditions, and health and safety incidents.
Reassure. Improve employee, occupant, and visitor confidence.
To achieve these goals, integrated security systems can be used to:
Deploy sophisticated thermal screening
Automate the control and management of people flow and building occupancy
Limit interactions with high-touch surfaces
Detect noncompliance with social distancing protocols
Monitor and detect mask compliance
Assist with contact tracing
Gain additional situational awareness
Making a More Secure, Healthier Environment
With modern, integrated security systems, security professionals can take proactive steps to enhance building safety; gain access to critical real-time data about their facility; improve compliance with new and changing regulations; manage people flow and occupancy levels; efficiently screen skin temperatures; detect proper mask usage and social distancing; contract trace; and improve overall situational awareness.
