Workplace Safety

Workplace safety now places on par with the opportunity for advancement, when it comes to employee satisfaction. In a recent survey published by Pinkerton Consulting & Investigations, New York, workplace violence was viewed as the greatest security concern to businesses. The study also ranks, in order of greatest concern, the following threats:

  • Workplace Violence
  • Business Interruption/Disaster Recovery
  • Terrorism (global and domestic)
  • Internet/Intranet Security
  • Employee Selection/Screening Concerns
  • Fraud/White-Collar Crime
  • Unethical Business Conduct
  • General Employee Theft
  • Property Crime (external theft, vandalism)
  • Drugs/Alcohol in the Workplace

Total costs associated with workplace violence are estimated at $36 billion annually.

Consider the Facts
RISING FALSE ALARM RATES

Over 98% of alarm activations are false alarms. And with each alarm call costing taxpayers in police time and resources, more and more communities are looking for ways to respond to alarms more effectively. Many communities now require verified response—confirmation by an alarm company or an eye witness that an actual intrusion is in progress—before dispatching police.

LONGER RESPONSE TIMES

The average police response time for non-verified alarm activation now exceeds 45 minutes in many communities. The longer the response time, the lower the chances of police stopping an intrusion in progress and apprehending the criminals.

NON-TRADITIONAL THREATS

Increasingly sophisticated crimes, including internal theft and fraud, and crimes accompanied by other disasters such as fire or explosions, overtax traditional alarm systems.
