Ensuring the safety and productivity of your employees

AccountingWEB is pleased to offer a presentation of Small Business Trends Radio. This is an hour-long broadcast that can be downloaded as a podcast or played on your computer.

Many small businesses are experiencing a growing need for high quality monitoring services to ensure the security and safety of their business and employees. And with today’s technology, there are a number of solutions that can be provided from anywhere in the world - via an Internet connection.

Jay Levy, Founder and President of Trueview Services, discusses how small business owners can provide safety, security and privacy to their employees and business through a monitoring system.

Here is a sampling from the show:

  • Fire Alarms — smoke detectors, surveillance systems, fire drills and the like are all ways to ensure the safety of your employees. Ask that your local fire department assist in one of your fire drills to reduce risk potential and provide insights to yourself and your employees.

  • Ensure productivity — through the installation of an IP based monitoring system. This is a high quality, cost effective, Internet based system that allows you to login from anywhere in the world. The recording device is housed within a hosted data system — making this “software as a service” for the surveillance industry.

    Wanted: A Few Good Guests

    We’re always looking for informative guests for Small Business Trends Radio. Contact us with a topic you’d like to discuss on a show.

  • Potential injuries — health issues, fires, slip and fall, stolen goods and productivity loss are all issues that can come as a result of not having a monitoring system in place. As you can see, a lot can go wrong and ensuring proper systems are in place can prevent liability.

  • Think prevention — by making sure you are displaying the proper safety signs for exit locations and evacuation instructions. Brail is also available. Contact your insurance agent for manuals, pamphlets, etc. to provide to your employees and perform a walk through with your local fire department.
