How could CCTV reduce your health and safety risks?

As an employer you have a legal duty to ensure, as far as reasonably practicable, the health and safety of your employees and anyone else who visits your premises.

CCTV reduces Health and Safety risks

The best case scenario is for you to remove any health and safety risk in question. Where that’s not possible, one of the best options is to implement technical solutions that reduce the risk.

CCTV is the perfect example of a technical solution that reduces risk. What’s more, in recent years, CCTV images have improved in quality and systems have reduced in price, making them an extremely cost-effective investment.

In this blog we’ll look at where CCTV solutions from Advanced Overwatch can reduce health and safety risks in your workplace. We’ll also look at the things you need to consider if you’re thinking about installing one of our CCTV systems.

 

Using CCTV to reduce work-related violence and crime

Installing CCTV to help you reduce violence and crime in the workplace has both psychological and practical benefits. Its presence can help your staff, customers and visitors feel safer. It may also act as a deterrent to offenders. In practical terms, if the worst does happen, you can use CCTV to direct staff, security or police to the scene of the crime. It can also help you collect evidence to convict offenders.

 

Using CCTV in delivery, goods in or out areas

In busy delivery or goods in and out areas there are numerous health and safety risks, not least where reversing vehicles are involved. CCTV, when installed correctly, can help prevent and record the majority of injuries to workers involving workplace transport, slips and trips. In fact, CCTV systems can be so useful that there is evidence to suggest they can pay for themselves in a few years because of the reduction in the number of accidents.

 

Using CCTV to monitor staff

Drawing up appropriate health and safety procedures is a vital first step in ensuring health and safety in your workplace. Equally important is ensuring that staff follow these procedures. CCTV can help you monitor staff to give yourself peace of mind that your policies are being followed. It can also help you in the disciplinary process when you find procedures being breached.

 

Using CCTV to monitor systems

In many workplaces, ensuring plant and machinery are functioning correctly is vital in preserving health and safety. CCTV systems can help you monitor your workplace systems and machinery, by detecting changes in conditions and automatically alerting you to possible problems.
