While it’s crucial to keep an eye on safety, so too is your ability to make sure your facility is secure. When the weather warms up, it’s not unusual to see loading docks or doors left open to take advantage of the nicer weather. But just because it’s getting warmer doesn’t mean that your hazardous material security can take a vacation.

Common sense

Use common sense judgment when you’re in the process of protecting your facility from thieves and burglars. Good judgment can help you assess the threat of potentially suspicious activity. However, you need to know what to look for! See below.

How to spot suspicious activity

Look for ...

  • People in places they don’t belong
  • Anyone recording or monitoring your work activities
  • People who exhibit inappropriate or aggressive behavior
  • Anyone asking a lot of questions (trying to gain knowledge of your work processes)
  • Vehicles parked where they don’t belong
  • Objects, documents, or shipping papers out of place or missing
  • People who seem like they’re pretending to be law enforcement or package delivery personnel

Make sure you’re familiar with your company’s security plan and properly trained on how to spot suspicious activity. The second you spot suspicious behavior or activity, report it immediately to your supervisor or manager.
