Improve the health and safety of your office with asset tags

 

It’s important to remember that health and safety is something
all businesses need to think seriously about, which is why
companies like Seton provide
asset tags which can help safeguard your
belongings
.

These security labels are available in all shapes and sizes and can be applied to all kinds of surfaces, so no matter what industry you are in, you should be able to find something suitable. There are, for example, small adhesives on offer that are ideal for office-based companies as they sit neatly on computers, laptops, mobile phones, printing equipment, scanners and other expensive gadgets, allowing anything that’s stolen to be tracked and traced. Criminals are less likely to steal items that are accounted for, so it’s wise to buy a box of tags online and start labelling your valuables.

If you’re looking for extra protection, you can also pick up tamper-evident asset tags at a great price. These are made from destructible or non-destructible materials and leave a nasty stain when removed – making thieved products harder to resell. Tamper Evident DuraGuard Labels will leave a checkerboard stain if removal is attempted and the Destructible Vinyl Barcode Tags will chip into many pieces.

What’s more, these durable barcoded tags will help you identify and track all your assets in an orderly and efficient manner. Simply purchase the tags in bulk, label up your assets and scan the barcode or serial number into an inventory management system. This will make stocktaking a lot easier and will stop you from replacing equipment unnecessarily. A regularly updated computer system will also let you know if anything goes missing and will enable you to identify goods that have gone astray.

If you assign notebooks, telephones or any other valuables to employees, ensure each item is labelled before it leaves the building – so you know who has what. This will allow you to recall products quickly and will ensure each staff member is equipped with the right products. Products like the SetonGuard Asset Tags with Barcodes won’t chip or peel, while Economy Property Identification Barcode Tags might be more appropriate if you’re looking to save money.

According to the latest police figures, published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) for the first time, thefts from homes and other businesses went up by five per cent between 2010 and 2011 – making asset tags an essential purchase for your belongings.

Seton not only offers an extensive range of options for those looking to better protect themselves, it also provides customised tags and asset tagging software – so if there is something specific you need, just ask.
