Knowing When Your Broomfield Business Needs New Locks
When you own your own business, you need to make sure you are protecting your stock and information when you are closed for the evening and weekends. You have put a lot of time and money into selecting the right alarm system and monitoring company, but when was the last time you had the locks changed? A professional locksmith in Broomfield can easily change out your locks for the latest technology. Here are some times when you should seriously consider changing the locks at your business or office.
Change In Staff
Of course, when an employee leaves or is dismissed, you are going to ask for their keys back. However, you do not know who they might have loaned the keys to or whether they might have made copies. A conscientious employee might make a copy of their key to the office so they always have a spare in case they lock themselves out. Rekeying the locks when you have a change in staff will give you better peace of mind.
It does not matter who lost a key from you to your warehouse manager. Anytime a key is lost your best practice is to go ahead and rekey the locks. Even if the employee believes the key is somewhere in their house, you do not want to take any chances they might be wrong. Even if the key was not marked as belonging to your company, you do not want to take the chance that the person who picked up the key knows who dropped it and where they work. Also, lost keys are sometimes stolen keys.
Once A Year
Choose a day and have your locks changed every year on that day. It could be your birthday or the first day back to the office after the Christmas holidays. Throughout the year, you might give keys to relatives or service people for various reasons. You might loan your key to an employee who does not normally have one for a couple of days. Keeping up with everyone who has had access to your keys can become overwhelming. Having your locks changed once a year makes good security sense.
