One of the most unwanted costs for business owners is theft. It is an unfortunate reality that thieves, who can even include your employees, target businesses with valuable merchandise that they can resell for a profit. Warehouses can be big targets for this kind of criminal activity, which is why warehouse operators should hire professional security officers to protect the premises and the valuable assets inside.
Warehouse security serves several vital roles in the protection of property. They do much more than act as a visual deterrence to criminals. Properties protected by security officers are far less likely to become the victim of crimes such as theft, unauthorized access, vandalism, and workplace violence incidents. Some of the primary duties of a warehouse security officer can include:
● Access Control in and out of the property
● Enforce safety rules and regulations
● Handle security violations
● Monitor for potential security issues
● Report security incidents and maintenance issues
