Safety First: The Smart Approach to Safety and Risk Management in Your Store

Safety and Security

They’re like the weather. Everyone talks about them, but pretty much no one does anything. They tend to be out of sight, out of mind. In most stores, it’s business as usual until a customer slip and falls, the bad guys enter though a propped-open back door, there’s an incident of workplace violence or one of your customers makes a litigious claim. While these instances may be rare, a store robbery, a frivolous workman’s compensation claim or a customer lawsuit can rain all over your store’s profitability.

Video intelligence managed on  the cloud-based video and audio from Envysion can help you take a proactive approach to safety and security and can provide visibility into three key areas:

  • Back door access
  • Slip and falls
  • Customer claims

Safety & Security

Back Door Access

The back door of your store is often the most vulnerable spot in the building, and since it’s usually out of sight, it’s the most frequent portal to crime. And even though you’ve developed clearly defined policies around back door access, let’s be honest—even your best employees often throw best practices to the winds when no one is looking. Wireless stores, having higher-value inventory, are particularly vulnerable. Video intelligence from Envysion can give you a set of eyes on your back door to ensure policies are being followed and to provide proof in case of a forensic investigation. And, in the event of a natural or man-made event, evidence from Envysion video intelligence can speed, and in some cases justify, insurance claims.

Slip and Falls

As with back door access, you have  clear policies around addressing spills in your restaurant. Video intelligence can tell you if those polices are being followed and by whom, and can give you critical proof of culpability in the event of a slip and fall liability investigation.

Customer Claims

Customers often have legitimate complaints. But these days, fraud raises its ugly head all too often. And lawsuits, however frivolous, can be costly, time-consuming and damaging to your store’s carefully constructed brand.

Safety first. It’s a cliché as old as the hills, but with video intelligence solutions from Envysion, you can not only offer visual training and coaching to new employees, but you can make sure that your safety policies are being followed, create a culture of security accountability and take the risk out of restaurant operations.
