How Secure is Your School â€“ A Security and Safety Checklist
The checklist represents just some of the issues your school may be facing. Of course, every situation is different, which is why Eversafe Australia provides a Free Security Review for every school.
|1. Does your current system protect every access point and entry to your buildings, such as doors, windows and other points of entry (loading docks, heating and A/C vents)?|| |
|2. Does your system help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your school buildings, grounds and restricted access areas?|| |
|3. Are community activities (non-school-related programs) held on your premises? If yes, does your security system take this into consideration?|| |
|4. Does your security program take into consideration before and after school care for students ie when students and teachers are arriving and leaving?|| |
|5. Are computers, sports equipment and student records properly secured against theft or unauthorized people?|| |
|6. Do you currently have a security surveillance system monitoring, recording and storing video of vulnerable and high-risk areas, such as:|
– Parking lots and garages?
– Hallways and locker areas?
– Computer rooms, A/V areas and science laboratories?
– Swimming pools?
– Hazardous chemical and cleaning product storage
– Graffiti- and vandalism-prone areas?
|7. Can your video surveillance cameras be monitored from a remote location? Do you receive exception reporting?|
|8. Can real-time security system data (video files, audio, access control) be shared with other locations and local law enforcement?|| |
|9. Are your schoolâ€™s security needs and systems routinely evaluated by a security company?|| |
