Safe And Sound


We’ve written before about the importance of keeping your site and workplace secure through tool and materials storage plus the implementation of security measures, both in and out doors. This week, as a follow on to our last post about staff amenities, we’re going to explore the world of staff secure storage, something even more relevant in these days of job shares, hot desking and open plan offices.

While no-one likes to think of dishonest practices occurring in the workplace, the reality is that theft or tampering does occur from time to time. It may not involve employees – for example, if your workplace is open to outside customers, on occasion you may have someone enter your business premises who decides to do the wrong thing. Providing dedicated secure storage for staff belongings is a great way to guarantee peace of mind, leaving everyone free to concentrate on their work instead of worrying about their valuables.

Of course best practice would dictate not bringing valuables into work unless absolutely necessary – however, workplace necessities such as mobile phones and tablets require secure storage, as do personal items such as handbags, wallets, keys and clothing, especially if employees have to change into a uniform at the start of their working day. Action Handling has a large range of lockers in a variety of materials and finishes that can be configured to suit almost any space. Some also come with clothing racks and bench accessories, allowing you to create a useful and secure facility for employees. Our office furniture range also includes locking cabinets and cupboards, meaning not only can you safely store sensitive documents or equipment, but you can also provide a place for staff to leave items of value.

As people look to include more exercise in their day, cycling to work is becoming a popular alternative to crowded trains and unreliable buses. Staff members who cycle to work require a safe place to store their bikes with locking facilities, as they are an easy target for thieves due to their portability. Action Handling supply a range of cycle storage facilities, from simple compact metal racks to a canopied compound with lockable gate. With wall and floor mounted options available, there is sure to be something to suit your workplace needs. We also carry hard-wearing plastic lockers suitable for use outdoors, making them the perfect accompaniment to an external storage area.

Everyone likes to feel secure, especially in their place of work. Providing lockable storage is a small thing, but can make a big difference to employee welfare and satisfaction.
