Monitor Visitors to Improve Facility Safety
By Barbara Oliver
Many people have a narrow view of who constitutes a "visitor" to their facility. For security purposes, anyone who isn't an employee-temporary employees, VIPs, consultants, contractors, volunteers and clients-should sign in upon entering the facility and sign out when exiting. When in doubt, you might ask an unknown visitor for photo identification to verify the person is who he or she claims. Record the driver's permit number or other traceable number in case you need to follow up later.
Your nonprofit's entrance might be the same as the entrance to the entire facility or it might be to a specific floor or suite. When you lease space, you can work with the facility manager to improve total building security, but should have total control over security in your occupied space.
