Quiz: Are You an Access Control Stud or Dud?
Access control is an integral part of day-to-day life. Show your expertise of the subject by taking this quiz.
Access control plays an important part in everyone’s life. Whether it’s opening the front door of your home, or a corporation securing important documents, this technology is everywhere.
Not only is the utilization of access control important, but so too is how it is installed. An improperly installed lock could lead to theft or even worse, death. Inappropriate turnstiles can lead to blockages in crowded public areas like subways or sporting venues.
Below is a short quiz that looks at some basics of access control. After you take the quiz, make sure to check out SSI‘s access control page for the latest products, news and best practices.
Jeff Zwirn’s Forensic Tip of the Month: Don’t Take Training Lightly
There are many things which alarm and security contractors must be familiar with in order to successfully perform and implement their duties. Having said that, from both a contractual obligation perspective and for liability purposes, the people you employ must be properly trained and supervised in all aspects of the tasks that you have chosen for them to perform.
Take the time to constantly provide your employees with training so that it will help you complete your projects properly — and minimize your company liability.
There is no right way to do the wrong thing, as they say, so make an investment to train each of your employees now and routinely, and your company will reap the rewards.
Alternatively, you will likely suffer the serious consequences of having untrained and unsupervised employees attempt to perform tasks which they are utterly unqualified to do. Simply put, consistent training and supervision is mission critical to your operations.
