Industrial Operations: 7 Security Measures to Consider Implementing

Industrial operations can take many forms. Usually, if you have a company that does any kind of industrial operation, you need to have an appropriate facility. That could be a warehouse or some other type of structure.

You need security for your industrial operation. Let’s talk about measures that could make sense right now.

Install High-Quality Fences

Putting industrial fences around your facility definitely makes sense. Fences can deter most thieves or vandals from accessing the property. If you install strong, tall fences, so much the better.

Hire Security Guards

You should also think about hiring some security guards who can patrol the property. Maybe you’ll have a security guard at the front gate at all times if you think that’s warranted.

You might also have teams of guards who walk around the facility or drive around in motorized carts or other conveyances. They should be more active at night since many break-ins occur with the help of darkness.

Install an Alarm System

You can certainly look into installing an alarm system. You might have one that will issue a verbal warning if someone unauthorized approaches the facility after hours.

You can get an alarm system that’s hardwired to a company off the premises that watches for alerts. If one is triggered, they can immediately tell you and send someone to investigate.

Install Automatic Timers on the Doors

If you have a facility that has confidential information inside, such as proprietary secrets, you must do all you can to protect them. That might include having locking doors with timers on them.

If you set these up, then no one will be able to access your industrial facility off-hours. If you need to access the premises for any reason, though, you will be the only one who can control the door locks. 

Install Automatic Timers on the Windows

If you have a facility with windows that you think could be used as a method of ingress, then it makes sense to have automatic timers on those as well. Like the doors, they can lock at a particular time of day or perhaps in the evening when you know there should be very few workers around. 

Have Your Facility in a More Remote Location

Sometimes, your location is your best way of keeping a facility secure. You can set up your industrial operation in a more remote area if it’s possible to do so. That way, you’ll know that anyone who wants to cause trouble will have a much harder time getting to you.

Have Electronic Swipe Cards

If you want to make sure that everyone who has access to your industrial facility is supposed to be there, then you can issue electronic swipe cards to each new employee. You can have them swipe their card every time they enter. You may even have certain swipe cards that can only access particular areas if not everyone has the same level of security clearance.

These measures should help keep your industrial operation safe.
