Keeping an Eye Out
As a customer, employee or entrepreneur, you’ve probably noticed that every business setting has cameras rigged to keep an eye on things. There’s a certain rigidness that some may feel when they notice these, but the stigma isn’t all that it seems. Those surveillance systems don’t exist to invade upon anyone’s space; in reality, businesses install them to ensure that nobody’s space ends up wrongfully invaded. It goes above the moral call of duty, however: There are some industries where video monitoring is a hard requirement of the job.
It’s essential for the contemporary entrepreneur to shell out a little extra to ensure that their legal and financial bases are covered when handling their clients as well as their own staff. Some service agreements and warranties may expect the establishment in question to attenuate their liabilities with the help of tactically placed cameras, motiondetectors, or other forms of monitoring as a crucial step in security. After all, if the business won’t take care of itself, why should anyone else risk providing coverage for them?
1. Keeping a close watch on your assets. As the owner of a business, it’s your prerogative to know everything that happens inside the boundaries that you command. Since running a business can be stressful — there’s always something that can go wrong, and the peace of mind that a monitoring system imparts can be an incredible relief, even if nothing actually happens. The last thing you need is the safe being broken into or some valuable asset of your setup vanishing without a trace.
2. Monitoring systems may be required or encouraged by ordinance. This depends heavily on the kind of business you’re running, what part of the country you live in, and what circumstances might unfold that warrant tapping camera feeds. One factor remains the same, though: You owe it to your clients and customers alike to keep everyone under watch, and you’re honoring this by keeping good with the needs of law enforcement in the event that anything should happen.
3. Believe it or not, your clients will feel safer. Despite the unsettling ubiquity of cameras on business premises, every client comes and goes knowing that those monitoring systems will deter any form of crime that could befall them. Wherever there are cameras, they know that the law has a foothold on any situation that unfolds, which ultimately creates a sense of comfort and will invite old clients back to your services again.
4. Insurance and other forms of service coverage and provision may deny contractual binding to your business.Without the installation or maintenance of your monitoring systems, you may be subject to service cut-offs or denial altogether due to the liabilities that are created by inadequate security coverage within the facility of your business. Remember that nobody wants to invest themselves in a risky client, and that’s exactly the kind of image you create for yourself when you neglect to monitor your property.
By not covering your bases, you’re sending the message to fellow contractors, entrepreneurs, and clients alike that your standing is too poor to afford the security, or worse, you just don’t care.
