Manufacturing & Industrial Security Challenges
Security is always an issue, but in these tough economic times, the problems of internal theft and false injury reports have increased greatly. With many other issues that need to be addressed, such as access control to restricted areas, monitoring of highly dangerous equipment, and control and monitoring in case of an emergency, it is essential to implement integrated security systems for access control, intrusion monitoring, and video surveillance and recording.
Utility companies in particular are one of the sites, listed by the Homeland Security Office, most at risk of a terrorist attack on American soil due to their vital importance. To ensure protection utility companies should evaluate and asses their security systems to guarantee that they are at maximum potential, as well as being in compliance with government regulations.
Staff & Visitor
With very extensive coverage areas, large staff, and dangerous machinery that need to be monitored, effective positioning of video camera surveillance that can record high quality images is an essential security implement for your company. Knowing that any incidents will be seen on cameras and then recorded onto the digital video management system provides peace of mind. Video clips can be exported quickly for any ensuing police or internal investigation.
In the event of an emergency, a centralized security management system can notify authorities for immediate response, record video, open doors, automatically trigger voice alarms, provide reports, and account for all personnel in and out of dangerous areas. This can also be a way of monitoring daily production to guarantee that your employees are abiding by all safety regulations at all times.
Koetter supplied industrial and manufacturing security products provide a range of security solutions from standalone access control, video/CCTV, intrusion and fire systems, to customized single screen solutions that will integrate not only those platforms, but will link to other facility systems to produce a centralized control system that can address the needs of your security department, as well as providing crucial information to other areas of the business.
Restricted Access System Solutions
In today’s threat climate it is vital to ensure that only authorized personnel have access to restricted areas. Koetter’s access control products offer specific features designed to meet the needs of a manufacturing/industrial environment from advanced monitoring of doors (reducing incidence of false alarms) to the ability to use portable readers that can validate staff ID at external manufacturing areas where cabling infrastructure may not exist.
If an identified threat level increases, the system operation can be changed to reflect this, automatically changing individual access levels, and increasing security levels. Beyond the security environment the access control system can be used to help in areas from health and safety by allowing only trained personnel to use certain equipment.
Koetter’s video/CCTV products have been selected from the top brands available to be used to address the normal security requirements of monitoring manufacturing/industrial buildings, product and supply movement, employee car parks, and monitoring employees as they perform required tasks and maintenance during normal operations.
