Access Control Systems can Help Enhance Workplace Security during the COVID-19 Outbreak
As COVID-19 spreads around the world, the majority of businesses and organizations have already started to implement measures to protect employees from contracting and spreading the virus – and their access control systems can prove to be invaluable tools to help them achieve these goals.
As organizations make operational decisions in response to COVID-19, they should ensure their threat mitigation policy is reflected in the rules and settings of their access control systems.
For instance, schools that have cancelled or postponed community activities should revisit their lock/unlock and alarm open/close schedules to make sure their building(s) is properly armed. They may also need to deactivate or suspend individuals’ access control cards to reflect these changes.
All operational decisions should be reinforced within an organization’s access control settings, so you can control the environment as best as you can.
This can also be an excellent opportunity to audit the access privileges to make sure the right people have access to the right areas of the building.
