Access control systems help minimize security risks in schools
Implementing secure access control systems (both pedestrian and vehicular) can help schools become safer and minimize security risks, experts believe.
Effective access control ensures the movement of people, assets and vehicles is managed, monitored and restricted in and around education sites. However, the first step towards achieving this goal is to undertake a comprehensive risk assessment, considering both the immediate and long-term use of the site.
Having a very good understanding of the potential risks facing one’s site can help them devise a comprehensive access control strategy. Schools can attract a range of unwanted guests, from vandals to thieves and other intruders, and in order to mitigate such potential risks, it is important for gates to be properly locked and monitored, whether by a member of staff, CCTV or other surveillance tools.
It is also highly recommended that all access points should provide a clear and direct path to the main reception and be part of a greater, robust perimeter. Moreover, keeping the number of access points to a minimum maintains control of visitor movement.
