The Top 5 Reasons why a Centralized Security Solution is Crucial to Productivity
The need to protect and secure manufacturing personnel & facilities while maintaining a safe work environment is a challenging initiative. With all the different processes that production facilities follow it can become hectic to manage, which is why it is imperative to have a centralized security solution. To shed light on the concerns facilities managers face the experts at Prime Communications have compiled The Top 5 Reasons why a Centralized Security Solution is Crucial to Productivity.
1. Detect & Immediately Respond to Threats
At the top of the list is being able to instantly detect and respond to threats. There can be a vast range of hazards such as workplace violence, perimeter intrusions, production line malfunctions, or internal theft. Identifying and acting on these issues are crucial components to the productivity of any manufacturing facility.
2. Perimeter Protection
Secondly, manufacturing facilities need a centralized security solution to provide perimeter protection. Knowing all the activity that is coming in and out of your facility alleviates and greatly benefits all areas of the company. Specifically, in the shipping and receiving areas where having the ability to receive alerts, visual verification of personnel and license plates recognition increases safety and eliminates the manpower it takes to manually document shipments coming in and out of the facility.
3. Monitor Lines & Processes Remotely
The third reason is having the ability to remotely monitor assembly lines and processes. Gathering live video data and updates improves quality assurance and detects if there are any discrepancies in the production line. With centralized monitoring, facility managers will notice the increase in productivity and the reduction in downtime.
4. Evaluate Liability Claims
Number four on the list is being able to utilize video surveillance footage to use in the case of liability claims such as slip and fall. Having the ability to access video of an incident has been proven to be useful and valuable in demonstrating the veracity of these claims. The capability to evaluate accidents and document the occurrence allows companies to save the resources and money otherwise spent on dealing with false liability claims.
5. Provide Remote Troubleshooting and Maintenance Support
Lastly, being able to remotely troubleshoot operational issues and safely determine if onsite maintenance support is required. Manufacturing relies on machine production; therefore it is crucial to be able to have the ability to identify a malfunction via video instead of risking staff safety to identify the problem. With the ability to remotely troubleshoot you can check, analyze, and report the issues with one system. If machinery does require maintenance personnel to fix any issues they are one step ahead by already having the issue identified.
