As the holiday season approaches, it is crucial to prioritize the safety and security of our workplace and its occupants. Please take note of the following holiday security tips to ensure a secure environment:

  • Access Control: Ensure that access to the premises is restricted to authorized personnel only. Be vigilant about unfamiliar individuals and report any suspicious activity to security.
  • Holiday Lighting: If decorating for the holidays, be mindful of electrical safety. Avoid overloading circuits, use LED lights, and turn off decorations when the office is unoccupied.
  • Package Deliveries: With the increase in online shopping during the holidays, be cautious about package deliveries. If possible, have packages delivered to a secure location or schedule deliveries when someone is available to receive them.
  • Travel Plans: If you plan to be away during the holidays, inform the appropriate parties and take necessary precautions. Ensure that doors and windows are securely locked, and consider using timers for lights to create the appearance of occupancy.
  • Cybersecurity Awareness: Exercise caution when shopping online and be wary of phishing emails or suspicious links. Keep personal and financial information secure, and update passwords regularly.
  • Emergency Preparedness: Review emergency procedures with employees, including evacuation routes and assembly points. Ensure that emergency contact information is up-to-date.
  • Fire Safety: If using decorative lights or candles, be mindful of fire safety. Keep flammable items away from heat sources and have fire extinguishers readily available.
  • Social Media Caution: Avoid broadcasting travel plans or holiday absences on social media platforms. This information can be exploited by individuals with malicious intent.
  • Collaborative Vigilance: Encourage employees to look out for one another and report any suspicious activity promptly. A collaborative effort enhances overall security.
  • Holiday Schedule Communication: Clearly communicate any changes to the regular schedule during the holiday season. Ensure that everyone is aware of office hours, closures, and any relevant information.
