There is no doubt that the crises of the world are spilling into the workplace with greater regularity. You need look no further than the 2015 attack a French magazine, a Nigerian shopping mall bombing during the 2013 World Cup, a hotel bombing in 2015 in Kabul, Afghanistan, and hundreds of other orchestrated and willful acts of violence. Going to work has become hazardous business for everyone from journalists, to store clerks, to hotel receptionists. No employee is more at risk, however, than security personnel.
Now, more than ever before, it is imperative for businesses to put the safety of their employees at the top of their priority list. One piece of a comprehensive plan is the installation of an under vehicle inspection scanner at every point of entry, effectively establishing a secure perimeter for your facilities. Employee safety, both for those carrying out the work of your business and those securing their safety on the front line is the number one benefit of a hi-tech under vehicle inspection scanner.
This important tool replaces the old convex mirror with an elongated handle and underground inspection bays used to surveil the under carriage of incoming and exiting vehicles. Both of these methods put security employees at grave risk of injury and loss of life. An under vehicle inspection scanner keeps pace with increasingly sophisticated threats with quick and accurate threat detection that far outperforms older methods, and keeps employees safer.
An under vehicle inspection scanner is capable of scanning the entire underside of a vehicle quickly and delivering a full-color, high-resolution image in real time to a control monitor remotely managed by security personnel. In this way, security inspectors are able to detect threats from a safe distance, and can respond to potential threats in seconds.
Add-ons like automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) technology link under carriage inspection images to the vehicle’s license plate. Stored images can then be used for comparison and immediately detect anomalies in a future scan, and identify vehicles attempting to illegally gain access to the premises.
While you cannot prevent violence in the world, or even being the business in proximity to a targeted attack, you can minimize risk by securing the perimeter of your workplace with an under vehicle inspection scanner at each point of entry. Now is a good time to assess the risks of your business and put more stringent security measures in place for employee safety. You don’t want to be the company that ups security post-tragedy.
