Winters are beautiful with snow and ice around the place. But at the same time, the same ice and snow can make the situations really frustrating in making your way across the dangerously smooth parking lots. And therefore the parking areas are more prone to accidents during the icy conditions of winters. Installing security cameras in your parking lot is a must so that you can identify any potential issues before they actually take place. Moreover, these can provide video evidence in case of an accident that does occur in your property. Here we shall be reviewing some of the main reasons as for why you must do security camera installation in the parking lot of your home or workplace.
In case somebody falls in your parking lot or some car slides into another, the accident will definitely get captured in the security cameras if installed. The video footage of the accident stands as an evidence in such a case, to prove who was responsible for the accident. With a security camera, no one will take the risk of filing a false lawsuit against you, if he/she takes a spill in your premises. The video surveillance systems are of great help in case of auto collisions. They can actually read silence plates quite clearly. Even if the doer escapes from the scene of the accident, the video proof can assist the police to quickly and easily identify the guilty.
Safety for Employees
Statistics suggest that over 20,000 workplace injuries occur because of falls during the snow or ice. And over a quarter of those result in a longer span (maybe over a month) of lost-time for the injured employee. You may become liable to compensate the lost time claim for your injured employee. Therefore, you should not miss out the safety of your employees, especially during winters.
If you have security cameras in your parking lots (an area more prone to falls during winters) you can keep a check on this area. The video surveillance allows you to monitor the condition of this location and ensure that there is no snow built-up or any other potential hazard. In case there is any you can immediately ask your maintenance crew to clear off the areas to prevent any accidents.
Prevent Fraud Worker’s Compensation
You might have paid worker’s compensation claims many times, especially during the winters. You may also have discovered that over 10 percent of them were not authentic. In order to prevent such fraudulent claims, you must install security cameras in your premises, especially the parking area. These security cameras will let you know the exact cause of the accident, hence saving you from any fraud cases.
