The goal for safety and security is to provide a reliant and secure program within areas for recreational and/or learning-based classes that are technology driven. Above all, we want to be known for offering a welcome, safe, secure, and inviting experience.
To understand the importance of safety and security.
Learning to identify safety and security risks that can be detrimental to the safety and/or security of employees, property items of NEWS, and patrons.
Learning how to properly report safety and security issues before it is too late.
Being able to evaluate a safety and security risk while aiding in the future endeavors of NEWS.
Providing a safe, welcome, and inviting environment.
Installing, updating, and maintaining all software used.
This will include firewall, software, and virus protection.
We will be using ZoneAlarm by Checkpoint for our Firewall and Software Protection, and McAfee Endpoint Essential for Small Business for virus protection.
Keeping Inventory and setting up at different sites.
This will include:
A detailed log will be kept daily. The worker will have to count inventory at the start of the day, before breaks and lunch, and at the end of the day.
Learning to secure appropriate electric energy and wifi connection from a nearby establishment.
Preparing programs and software for class sessions.
Providing technical support when needed.
Maintaining a daily safety and security log in addition to gas and maintenance log.
A monthly summary will be e-mailed to the direct supervisor.
Creating a script to follow when addressing any safety and security issues.
Often the NEWS employee will have to be the main voice for the program, so creating a script to follow and use is important.
Compiling a list of safety and security rules for patrons to follow.
This will closely be related to the security and safety of all within the vehicle, and will be provided to those prior to rental, and those who simply inquire.
Examples will include:
Providing times of operation and a calendar of where we will be next.
Providing log-in instructions at each station.
Setting basic rules for patrons to follow like no food, no loud music, no talking loudly on your phone, etc...

We feel it is very important that every employee be well versed when it comes to identifying these issues.
