Manufacturing Security: The Right Resources for the Right Reasons

Posted 08/12/2014 by Bob Chartier


manufacturing industrial security

There is not a one-size-fits-all approach to the specialized safety and security needs of the manufacturing and industrial sector, and maintaining cost efficiencies while meeting regulatory compliance can be especially challenging.

Your security team should be a partner in creating forward-thinking safety and security best practices, while integrating solutions that will allow you to focus on your core business and provide you with peace of mind. There are a number of ways your security provider can help:
  • Risk mitigation and regulatory compliance – Security providers can assist with safety and regulatory compliance through risk assessments, training, developing procedures and coordinating drills. They should be knowledgeable about your geographic area, facility, employees and visitors, and by doing so, they should be able to make recommendations for safety improvements and strategic solutions. They can also help by communicating procedures to your employees and visitors. 
  • Integration – Your security provider should continuously review current practices and procedures and make recommendations for areas of improvement. These may include blended security officer and technology solutions which can streamline efficiencies and enhance intelligence gathering and reporting.
  • Labor redeployment – Additional integration and cost savings can be achieved by enhancing the roles of your security officers. Your security provider should be able to take on in-house duties, such as reception, mailroom, badging, etc., freeing your employees with industry-specific expertise to focus on other areas of your operations. Your security provider can also take on tasks that might otherwise have been subcontracted, such as monitoring safety equipment, which helps you save on costs without sacrificing quality.

A quality security provider will be committed to helping you identify and implement the right resources, in the right place, for the right reasons. Experience can be your greatest ally in maintaining a safe and secure site while increasing value and lowering your total cost of ownership.

Safety and security are crucial to the success of manufacturing facilities; however, as budgets tighten, security directors and facility managers may look for ways to be more efficient. Watch our webinar, Efficiently Deploying Security Resources: Manufacturing's Top 3, to learn more.

    This is a great blog. Just made a preliminary presentation with my BDM in Memphis to a copper tube manufacturer and discussed TCO in lieu of price among other things Bob has covered in this article. The message resonated in a big way. I will be sending this blog to this prospect as an additional resource as he prepares his RFP.

    Thanks Bob, I learned this from you on a manufacturing Key Account opportunity recently.
