BUILDING SECURITY CHECKLIST BY DMM FACILITY MANAGEMENT

A building security checklist is one of the most important things that security services must create.

Likewise, we at DMM Facility Management Pvt Ltd also have security checklists in place that we create before starting our security services.

We offer different kinds of services and security services is one of our most important and well-trusted services among all our facility management services.

In order to carry out the service, we have to take care of many building security audit checklists so that we are sure everything is being followed and every security protocol maintained.

Along with that we also have a building security assessment checklist as well as a physical building security checklist.

WHY HAVE A SECURITY CHECKLIST?

There are a lot of factors and different elements that are required to be fulfilled in order to have the perfect security protocol.

Having the best security management system as well as the top-grade surveillance system or even using commercial-grade locks are not enough to have the best security.

That is where our security checklist is necessary so as to prevent human errors.

All of our security checklists are there for a simple reason and that is to bring out security vulnerabilities and embolden our security practices.

Take a look at the security steps we use to make a secure building security checklist.

  • SECURITY POLICY

 

Every building must have a security policy drawn up before the security team starts providing security.

 

This is made quite before the security moves in.

 

This is exactly like doing the soil assessment before erecting a building on a piece of land.

 

In order to establish security in a building, the building must be analysed with everything in the building.

 

This security assessment includes all the risks as well as all the potential dangers that the buildings people can face.

 

Only after every detail has been analysed, is a security policy is made.

 

  • SECURITY HISTORY CHECK

 

Just like any doctor asking for the medical history of a patient, our company always asks and needs to know the security history of the building.

 

It is not that we ask for the history so that we can analyse if you want to work there or not, that is not the case as we never say no to any security service request.

 

It is because knowing the security history of the building can help us better serve security in the building.

 

During the security history assessment, we ask everything from what was the type of security being provided to the building before we started.

 

We also take note of any security lapse incidents that might have taken place in the building and if there are any flaws in the security we try to take care of those.

 

Additionally, we speak and have meetings with the staff so as to understand what are the security flaws in the building according to their personal assessment.

 

Transparency is the key to a security job and we take transparency quite seriously and that is why we need to know everything before we start security for a building.

 

  • SURVEILLANCE CHECKLIST

 

After the security history checklist is done, we start planning the surveillance.

 

We make sure to draw up a big list of every possible surveillance law and that includes blind spots as well as areas that do not currently have good surveillance.

 

We get meticulous in this process so as not to miss any area.

 

After drawing up this checklist we prepare a different checklist wherein we have all the solutions that need to be done in order to take care of all these flaws.

 

We take time in doing this because if we are to jerry-rig this now, we might have bigger problems later.

 

  • ACCESS CHECKLIST

 

Access control is one of the most important aspects of a building wherein we issue different types of access key cards and physical keys as well as authorisation to different people.

 

Not everyone has the same level of authorisation and security clearance.

 

Let’s understand this with an example, an administrative ranked person can go into the accounts section with their key card. Their keycard is different from the keycard given to the new intern.

 

The new intern’s keycard does not allow them to enter the account’s department because there is no need for them there. Although special access codes can be given if the need arises.

 

We draw up and access key card and lock checklists so as to determine what kind of staff has what level of access and security clearance.

 

After discussing if this access clearance is alright with the administration,  we issue all the security devices such as keys and key cards.

 

There are a lot of other security checklists that we do for the building and some of them are proprietary and only our clients have access to them.

If you are someone who is worried about their building’s security then we are here to help you.  We are DMM Facility Management Pvt Ltd and we have decades worth of experience in the private security sector in India and we will help you secure your premises and building no matter how difficult it is.

STEPS TO GROW A HANGING GARDEN

Hanging gardens or vertical gardens are slowly becoming quite popular in the gardening world and vertical gardens may seem like a challenge to some but they are an excellent option for you if you lack horizontal space and by that, we mean that you lack the land to grow a horizontal traditional garden.  In this blog, we will see the simple steps for you to grow a vertical garden or a hanging garden.

Select a Wall –

Select a Wall

Choosing a wall can seem difficult but it is rather quite simple.  You can practically choose any wall of your liking but you have to keep a few things in mind.  That Wall should not be connected to any important structures of the house or any building because that Wall is going to get a lot of water and stay damp from the roots holding water.  The wall should also so be facing the sunlight for most of the time of the day and this will ensure that your garden stays healthy and your plants receive abundant sunlight.  you need not worry about sweight because anyone will be able to hold a normal sized hanging garden but you must ensure that your garden is not something really big. 

Building a Frame –

Building a Frame

The next most important thing you need to do is build the frame which you can directly put on a wall.  For the frame, we would suggest that you use PVC pipes and PVC pipe elbows and make a frame.  We would suggest that you do not use metal because metal can be expensive and also the additional weight can weaken the wall and we do not suggest that you use wood because without treatment wood will start to rot quite easily.

Plastic sheeting –

Plastic sheeting

This step is quite important if you want to maintain the integrity and structural strength of the wall because prolonged exposure to water can weaken the wall and therefore, we would suggest that you have a plastic sheet backing to the frame that you just put up and this plastic sheet can be PVC sheets as well as any other construction plastic. 

Water retention –

Water retention

This is a simple step and the purpose of this step is to help your hanging garden retain water for the plants.  The simplest way to do this is to attach layers of fabric to the frame and this is the part where your plants will live on and hold water.  We would suggest that you use carpet padding as well as any other kind of thick fabric and you can attach them directly to your frame with stainless steel screws and stables and make sure that the fabric is stretched and does not have any folds or wrinkles.

Irrigation –

Irrigation

This is one of the most important steps and this is where you will set up the irrigation system for your hanging garden.  We would suggest that you do not DIY the hardware for this step as it is an important step and you need to buy your poly tubing with fittings from any irrigation supplier and you must be able to adjust the water to drip in seconds and not minutes as your vertical garden requires more water than a horizontal garden and you must be able to maintain the balance between wet and not overflowing. 

Fertilization –

Fertilization

This is an easy step once you have your irrigation system in place you can simply prepare, you’re the fertilizers you want to apply in your hanging garden and then and apply them through the water irrigation system.

Plants –

Plants

We can discuss a thousand varieties that you can put on your wall but we and other experts seem to agree that it is always in the best interest to plant native species of plants in your vertical garden because that not only blends well with the surroundings but it is also good for the plants because they are accustomed to the climate and environment.

Inserting the plants –

Inserting the plants

After you have chosen the type of plans you want to plant, you will simply need to make horizontal slits with a razor in the fabric of the frame, and make sure to not go too deep has to pierce the plastic backing.  Then you must insert the plant roots and see that no soil is there on the root and then fix the roots with staples.

 These were the few simple steps you will need to follow if you want to blend a hanging garden or a vertical garden in your home and if you are someone who is into gardening and beautification and wants to see the same thing in your business complex but you do not have the skills and manpower to do it then you can always hire us at DMM Facility Management Pvt Ltd because we have renowned gardeners that will beautify the garden complexes of your business.
