Today, we’re going to talk about measures and actions to protect yourself, coworkers, and the workplace from unintentional and natural threats, as well as from intentional harm from others such as theft, violence, or willful damage-measures that will make the workplace safer and more secure.

Nationwide, crimes against businesses are increasing. Companies must be concerned about theft of equipment, inventory, trade secrets, computer information, and money.
Workers must also take steps to prevent other security risks, such as arson, vandalism, and workplace violence.
Feeling safe at work was ranked third among the top five priorities of job satisfaction by employees polled by the Society for Human Resource Management.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act requires a safe workplace, and this includes security.
