Here are some of the issues raised regarding the use of CCTV in public places, especially in hospitals.

Everyone has a right to know –

Hospitals using CCTV surveillance systems needs to post a sign that will inform everyone in the area that they are being watched and that they are being recorded. It is regarded as a fair-minded approach to tell everyone that any illegal activities are not allowed and will be arrested.

It is the duty of the owners to protect –

In an establishment such as in hospitals, hospital owners need to ensure that the hospital staff, patients, and visitors are protected. It is the responsibility of the owner of the hospital to provide them with an adequate level of security against illegal activities and personal injury.

Protect the hazardous area –

CCTV security camera systems are used to prevent access to certain areas in hospitals, especially in regions of potential hazards present. In the hospital, there are certain areas that contain chemicals that can be deadly if exposed to others.

The camera and monitoring system never sleeps. As a professional business coach, I see many business people are turning to the camera to "watch" activity at retail locations, warehouses, offices and outer perimeter.

Many times the camera is used for the interaction of customers change, to reduce workers' compensation claims, and to observe a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot or yard after normal working hours.

The initial cost of the camera is 25% of the cost of one year from the security guard. The procedures are designed and the plan was accepted by the insurance carriers. Cameras and offsite observers thwarted all attempts by the bad guys.

Monitoring system (alarm) well when properly planned and procedures used to control access to the facility. The key is planning, good security consultant is worth their weight in gold, make sure that there are experienced professionals who know how bad people think and act.
