3 Times to Consider Replacing Your Office Locks

Business owners have a lot of different responsibilities. From running the actual business to keeping their employees safe and happy- the job is never-ending. However, one area where a business owner must never neglect is the security of their office. With that in mind, A1 Lock and Key LLC is discussing three times you may need to replace your office locks.

When to Replace Office Locks

1. You Lost Your Keys

It might seem obvious to replace your locks when you’ve lost your keys, but we have found that many people don’t take lost keys seriously enough. In fact, many people will simply make a new copy of a spare key, and return to their regular plans. However, in a busy office complex, this is quite dangerous to do. You have no way of knowing who picked up your lost keys and now has access to your office door. This puts your business records, computers, and even personal belongings at risk unnecessarily.

2. You Moved Offices

Just like when you move into a new home, moving into a new office is a good reason to get the locks replaced. You want to guarantee that only you have access to your new office and you know exactly how many keys are circulating among your employees. However, keep in mind that if you are renting this property, the rental office will likely need to be notified of the change.

3. You Have a Change of Staff

While you want to be able to trust your employees completely, it would be irresponsible to ignore the possibility that a disgruntled former employee could cause harm to your office. So, while it may seem like overkill, it’s best to cover all your bases and change your locks when a staff member (who had a key) resigns or is fired. Even if they left on good terms, you never know if they made a copy of their key at some point during their employment.
