As a general policy, you should remind your employees to protect their business and personal property by following a few simple rules as listed below:

  1. Lock door when leaving the office, even for a moment.
  2. Hang coats, etc. away from the entrance so they cannot be stolen easily when you're busy.
  3. Keep valuables out-of-sight, keep minimum cash, and keep cash and stamps in an office safe.
  4. Secure purses and gift packages out-of-sight.
  5. Lock desks when not seated at them and lock storage areas when they're not in use.
  6. Be suspicious of solicitors (they may be surveying the office for a later visit). Report all solicitors to the Management Office.
  7. Beware of telephone calls for you to go to another location (an accomplice visits your office).
  8. Check identification of persons entering to perform maintenance (verify with Management Office).
  9. Don't let strangers enter building / area on your security identification card or key.
