Home security is without a doubt one of the most pressing concerns for anyone who cares about family and loved ones. But once your physical defenses against home intrusion are in place and after you’ve possibly installed some sort of Surveillance, you may think the job is done and life is just for fun.

However, most people, and probably you too, spend many hours of their lives at their job, job or business. You may or may not be responsible for what goes on there, but you still don’t want to be in for unpleasant surprises.

So it’s not out of the question for you to take the time to look around your desk, machine, or post and see if any dangers you can think of seem to have not been adequately addressed.

It is true that in any civilized place there are firm rules and laws that the employer is obliged to know and respect, and that there are officials whose job it is to ensure their correct application. But mistakes and failures happen. Who should be in charge of the safety and well-being of the place where he works?

Could a fire start and spread nearby? Are there fire extinguishers somewhere within reach? Does everyone know the best escape route? Can they all escape safely in no time?

This is just one example of something extremely disturbing that could occur due to either the technical malfunction of an appliance, machine or device, or the human carelessness of someone in your area.

Other more disturbing accidents could possibly occur. Although the Management is responsible for preparing contingency plans, everyone, including you, can easily refer to official sites that raise awareness and provide suggestions to limit damage from disasters.

If the specific precautions seem readily achievable, you, the diligent person that you are, can volunteer to do some prep work. If a more complex study needs to be devoted to certain aspects, a team should probably work on it.

Bosses would likely appreciate and encourage such involvement. If unfortunately something serious happens, contingency plans need to be in place to get you back to work in the shortest possible time with as little disruption as possible.

It may not be easy, it may be expensive, it may take some time, but having thought of all the important arrangements beforehand, it would certainly have helped to recover as soon as possible by concentrating on doing useful things, avoiding idleness and despair.
