Video surveillance in the workplace protects both the company and its employees. Install video surveillance systems inside and outside the workplace to record criminals who vandalize or steal company property. The video images will help the police in the ensuing investigation. Video surveillance protects employees indirectly by monitoring each visitor who comes into the building and keeps a video record of suspicious activity. Managers and supervisors can use video surveillance to monitor employee productivity, determine job performance areas where the employee needs improvement and insure that employees follow company safety rules. Maintenance employees can use video surveillance cameras to detect equipment that needs repair and equipment that is operating in an unsafe manner. Because employees, managers and supervisors cannot be everywhere at once, a video surveillance system monitors productivity without hiring additional personnel.
