Office employees are to leave and enter the building through the non-secure employee entrance on the side of the building. At night use a “buddy” system for getting to your car or cab. Items of value should not be brought to work, as the Company cannot assume responsibility for them.
For those production and shipping employees who must enter through the guard shack, have your identification and articles ready for inspection. This will help speed the process of entering the building and the search procedure. The guards will inspect your purse, lunch box / bag and inside your coat or any other area without touching your person. If you are asked to step aside by the guard, please do so without incident. In some cases, individuals are taken aside by guards on a random basis as a deterrent to others who may think about removing company property without permission in the future.
