Security

Employers offer their employees breaks throughout the day and typically provide them with a relaxing space that they can retreat to so that they can reenergize and gear up to finish the remainder of their workday.

The break room is a place that employees should feel safe and secure in which is why it is so important that basic security is covered for a break room in which several people are in and out at all times during the day.

Access Codes

Access Control Systems are one way you can secure an employee break room. This type of system collects data and monitors the entry points so that the employee break room is more secure, and it keeps out those who are not supposed to be there.

The access system will effectively do the following:

  • Control who is allowed in the break room

  • Access codes will eliminate the need to carry more keys

  • You can closely monitor who enters and leaves the break room

  • You will have a record of the specific people accessing the break room

Video Surveillance Cameras

In addition to the convenience of the access control system and access codes, you can also help deter employee theft with video surveillance cameras. They will discourage employees from stealing from the business and help prevent any significant company loss. Workplace theft can cost a business a lot of money each year.

They can also monitor the behavior and actions of the employees near all point of sale areas, record and playback video footage, ensure that employees are using their own access codes, and you can also sync the cameras with the access control system.

However, before positioning the security cameras, you will want to check with your state’s Department of Labor to make sure that you are legally positioning all the cameras.

Fire Alarms and Safety Guidelines

Since break rooms also often serve as a small kitchen area for employees to enjoy lunch, then it is safe to assume that a microwave or small stove will be used. In this case, it is important to make sure you have a fire alarm in place to monitor the break room for any fires.

Smoke detectors and monitored alarms should also be used in break rooms, and certain safety guidelines should also be followed such as the following:

  • Never leave the microwave or stove unattended when in use

  • Make sure there is access to a first aid kit

  • Label all food items and avoid any cross-contamination

  • Clean up and sanitize all eating areas

  • Thoroughly wash your hands

Following these guidelines will also help to ensure a safe and clean environment for the employees.

The break room should be a very comfortable place for employees to spend some time in during a busy and stressful day, so the employers should take the steps necessary to make sure that it is a safe environment and the right equipment is in place and in proper working order at all times.
