It is essential to reward the work of those who help maintain safe and secure hospitals, schools, airports, and public places. Letting them know we appreciate their commitment to safety will encourage work ethic and improve their sense of belonging. Security leaders cannot be successful if they don’t have the support of their team. Employees who don’t feel appreciated and trusted by their leaders are more likely to quit or simply ignore policy and procedures.
Your team also needs to know that you’re their advocate and willing to provide the right tools to help develop their skills for professional advancement opportunities. Below is a list you might consider a fit for your security team.
Reducing work-related stress is simple with an expiring visitor badge and log book. Badge Log Books will bring ease and simplicity to your visitor sign-in process, providing a duplicate visitor record and a self-expiring adhesive badge, all with the stroke of a pen. Expiring badges used in Visitor Badge Log Books will expire to show a red-colored “VOID” symbol after 14-16 hours, ensuring that a guest can’t overstay their visit and make it visible to security staff. When security staff are aware of visitors' current position, it makes it easier for them to pay attention to further securing areas, in high need, inside or around the facility.
Great problem-solving products are visitor ID wristbands, especially for school and airport security staff. It is easy to be outside of the know with thousands of students, faculty staff, and visitors. With visiting wristbands, they can properly identify civilians and better judge the protocol. When required to stay calm under pressure, the security staff's last concern should be confusing who is who. Band silicone wristbands can also be customized to be a fit for all visitors and guests to wear, including security staff, keeping everyone united and showing work spirit.

Simply place the cover over the permit, and the expiration process begins—no need to worry about unauthorized re-use of uncollected badges. Since the color change is highly visible from afar, security staff will know if their assistance is needed or continue with the following tasks, saving them a lot of time and advancing their work.
