Master Lock : Workplace Safety #Review and #Giveaway

MASTER LOCK HELPS CONSUMERS PROTECT THEIR BELONGINGS ON-THE-JOB WITH PERSONAL SAFETY TIPS WHILE AT WORK

From business trips to staff meetings, more than 122 million people are full-time employees, and spend an average of 47 hours a week or more at their workplace.** Adjusting to the work environment; securing valuables; and balancing responsibilities, assignments and deadlines are all important aspects of  being in the workforce. Master Lock offers helpful advice and easy-to-use products for securing belongings while in work mode. 

“Most people spend a majority of their time at work, which makes it important to take the necessary steps to ensure a safe and secure workplace,” said Rebecca Smith, vice president, marketing for Master Lock. “We want to provide reliable products and tips to help create a secure work environment.”

Whether starting a first job, transitioning to a new company or simply evaluating the security at a current workplace, Master Lock is providing consumers with tips to help secure their belongings at the workplace and their homes while they’re on the job.

  1. Secure Spare Keys: With 73 percent of U.S. and Canadian residents working outside of their home,* hiding a spare house key under a mat or rock makes consumers susceptible to possible break-ins and thefts. Provide secure access to cleaning services, maintenance workers, babysitters or a family member with a trusted key lock box, such as the Master Lock 5422D Portable Key Safe, which offers keyless convenience and secure storage of keys and access cards to provide peace of mind when at the office. Be selective when giving out the code, and only provide access to trusted friends, family and workers.
  2. Protect Personal Valuables: Approximately 50 percent of people who bring valuables to work do not have a secure place to store them.* Whether in the office or traveling, securing smartphones, wallets, electronic devices and other small valuables in a personal safe, such as the Master Lock 5900D SafeSpace, helps prevent theft. Designed with a durable cable, the Master Lock 5900D SafeSpace can be wrapped around a fixed object at the office or in a hotel room when traveling for work– providing lightweight and portable convenience. Larger items of value, such as a purse or backpack, should be secured in a cabinet or drawer.
  3. Stay Safe and Organized Online: Most offices are equipped with computers, software programs and the Internet for employees to use to complete their work efficiently. Keeping track of numerous logins and documents as well as ensuring this information is stored in a safe place can be a daunting task. To stay digitally organized, use the Master Lock Vault – a free, digital safe deposit box, to store passwords and digital copies of important documents in a secure, reliable location for easy access from any smart phone or computer. And, employees should always log-off or place their computers in sleep mode when stepping away from workstations.
  4.  Protect Important Documents: Organization is key when starting and settling into any job. Contracts, employee tax forms and other important paperwork can quickly pile up if you do not have a secure place to keep these documents. Using a Sentry Safe FHW40120 Large Lock File will help protect your sensitive information from theft, flood and fire threats as well as provide easy office organization with the ability to store hanging file folders. Be sure to shred any sensitive documents when they are no longer needed to keep them from falling into the wrong hands.
  5. Lock Up Before Leaving: Whether working remotely at a coffee shop, taking a business trip or hitting the gym after work, locking luggage, briefcases and laptop or gym bags will help protect valuables in transit. A TSA-Accepted Luggage Lock, such as the Master Lock 4680DBLK, will help keep belongings safe on-the-go. The Master Lock 4680DBLK and 4680DNKL Luggage Locks offer resistance to cutting, and are TSA approved so screeners can inspect and relock your baggage without damaging the lock. It’s also important to keep small personal items in front pockets.  Leaving valuables in back pockets makes them easy targets for pickpockets.  
Whether you are traveling, at a vacation hope, using a storage shed or need to keep your own home secure, we turn to Master Lock. We keep our home safe and our kids prepared with the Master Lock Storage Security - No. 5422D.  We live out in the country and  it is not like like you can leave an extra key at the neighbor's house.  Our kids each carry a house key and we make sure we are home when the bus comes as well, but you never know... early release happens, traffic happens, etc.  We want our kids to be able to still get into the house without their keys or mom/dad at home.  This unit is perfect for it.  Teach the kids a code and the key is hidden inside for easy access.  No need to worry! 
When we need a house sitter, no need to get them the key ahead of time.  We just tell them the code and they have easy access to the front door key to get in and take care of the pets!  
It is perfect for the shed, no having to search for the shed keys!  It fits both our side door and double door keys perfectly! No need to worry about someone getting in and messing around with the mowers and tools.  We can keep the doors locked and know where the keys are at all times.  No wondering where someone put them after last use
