Ensuring that people, buildings and equipment are protected requires an effective healthcare building security alarm system for which users are fully trained, alarm systems that are regularly maintained and service inspections that are logged and documented.
A well-maintained system will ensure compliance with building safety regulations and also help to ensure the business passes CQC inspections with flying colours. Healthcare trustees and representatives need evidence that their security systems and processes are effective and will prevent unauthorised access to their premises.
These can include access control systems to ensure accurate recording of people entering and leaving a building as well as controlling access to restricted areas. We can install a wide range of access control options such as key card, fob, fingerprint, and biometric. CCTV is also a very good monitoring areas such as car parks and corridors and will certainly act as a deterrent for any potential vandalism.
We also help by suggesting ways to educate building users on the impact their behaviours can have on security. Leaving exit doors, fire doors or other limited access doors and windows open means anyone can enter, and sharing passes creates bad habits and reduces security.
At Tecserv we help to ensure regular planned maintenance and training takes place and that we help our healthcare clients to ensure that their intruder and access control systems support their security policies and procedures.
