Is Your Visitor Security Management up to Scratch?

Take your visitor security management to the next level with these tips and best practices!

You may think your visitor security management is on point, but are you ignoring some key factors that can leave your premises open to some pretty serious security risks?

Let’s explore some of the key considerations you need to keep in mind when evaluating your visitor security management!

Assign time limits to visitor and contractor access

It’s important to consider when you’re signing in visitors and contractors how long they need to be on site. For example, visitors may only need to access your site on particular days of the week or for a limited period of time during a particular day.

A great to set time limits for your visitors and contractors is through the use of a time-restricted permit. VisiPoint offers comprehensive tools to generate and distribute permits which are limited to particular times, offering you the peace of mind that only the people with appropriate permissions are able to sign in.

Limit where your visitors can access

In the same way that it’s essential to limit how long your visitors and contractors have access to your premises, it’s arguably more important for you to limit their access to specific areas of the premises.

Plan ahead

One of the best ways to ensure that your visitor security management processes are up to scratch is to plan ahead as extensively as possible. A great wat to do this is to get as much information about your visitor – particular the time and nature of their visit – as you can before they arrive on site.

Not only does this allow you to be prepared to welcome them when they arrive, but you can also be fully prepared with all of the details of their visit. So, for example, if a visitor arrives on site at 9 o’clock and has indicated that they will have left by 2 in the afternoon but doesn’t leave by this time you can then take any actions necessary to check why they are still on site.

Keep on top of your processes

Even if you think your visitor security management processes are up to scratch right now, there’s a high likelihood that they won’t always be. That’s why it’s essential that you conduct regular and thorough reviews of all of the ways in which you secure your premises to identify and fix potential flaws, as well as implementing new security processes.

What’s vital to remember is that this is by no means an exhaustive list, and it’s unlikely that any list could explore all of the ways in which your visitor security management might not be up to the job of keeping your premises.
