Lobby security





A lobby is a buffer, a receiving area for people between the public side of the building and the private side. Because the door is the first part of a building that the public can enter, it’s important for businesses to maintain good lobby security. A secure reception area can improve employee safety, protect customer privacy, and even thwart major security breaches. Lobby security has become increasingly important for small- to medium-sized businesses, where high-profile incidents have proven that organizations simply can’t ensure safety and security using paper logs.

Roles and Responsibilities of Security Personnel in Lobby Security:-
  1. Full access control, investigate and prepare reports on accidents, incidents, and suspicious activities.  Maintain written logs as required by the post.
  2. Watch for irregular or unusual conditions that may create security concerns or safety hazards.
  3. Warn violators of rule infractions, such as loitering, smoking or carrying forbidden articles.
  4. Observe departing personnel to protect against theft of company property and ensures that authorized removal of property is conducted within appropriate client requirements.
  5. Foot patrols inside and outside facility.
