Monitoring the inside and outside of school premises using CCTV surveillance equipment is becoming a necessary aspect of ensuring the safety and security people, processes and property connected to a school campus. There is also an ever-increasing need to provide and reference video evidence for potential investigations.
A well-maintained system will ensure compliance with security regulations and also ensure you pass CQC inspections with flying colours. The owners, operators and managers of health care premises need evidence that their CCTV systems and processes are effective and will support the efficient running of their business.
Despite its benefits, CCTV can be viewed as an intrusion so it is important to ensure the benefits and rationale for installing CCTV is communicated to those it is intended to protect. This includes strict guidelines for usage and storage of any data that is captured.
Effective and well-maintained CCTV surveillance systems and fully trained users are essential elements of ensuring patients, visitors and staff are protected.
At Tecserv UK we help to ensure regular planned maintenance and training takes place and we help healthcare operations can ensure that their systems support their security policies and procedures.
CCTV is a very good at deterring people from carrying out acts that are not allowed, such as entering a building without authorisation, causing damage to buildings or property. Most CCTV systems now record in high definition and are able to provide evidence that is admissible in court. The recordings can also be used to educate on the impact and risk to life certain behaviours can cause.
