I’m a member of Master Lock’s Live Secure Safety Squad and have been compensated for my time in writing this post.
Landing that new job is call for celebration but actually starting it can be overwhelming. A new environment, new people to deal with, new responsibilities. There’s so much to think about and remember that personal safety is often an afterthought, if it’s even thought about at all.
On behalf of the Master Lock Live Secure Safety Squad we’re sharing some tips today to help our readers secure their belongings in the workplace and at home, while they’re on the job.
Day 1 on a new or first job is often filled with a lot of paperwork and forms to fill out. W-9s, direct deposit forms, benefits setup, documentation for any items like laptops or phones that the company provides you with. To stay organized and have all that you need at the tap of your smartphone, store sensitive information like social security and bank account numbers using the Master Lock Vault.Master Lock Vault is 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. It’s the perfect place to store any new passwords or codes that you receive on your first day for clocking in or logging on to employer computers or workstations.
Securing your environment
Depending on your job, you might have a desk, office or locker assigned to you.
If you have a desk or office that locks, secure spare keys 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.For lockers, the Master Lock Speed Dial™ Set Your Own Combination Directional Padlock provides maximum security for your personal items.
Establish your Command CenterWhile the work place is becoming increasingly digital, many jobs still require paper copies of documents, proprietary information, contracts, tax forms, time cards and the like. Don’t let that sensitive information sit out in the open for others to see and protect it from theft, flood and fire threats with the Sentry Safe FHW40120 Large Lock File. It provides easy office organization with the ability to store hanging file folders. When the paperwork is no longer needed, shred the sensitive documents to keep them from falling into the wrong hands.Traveling
If your new job requires you to travel, 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.You can also protect your personal valuables with the Master Lock 5900D SafeSpace. This small, portable safe keeps smartphones, wallets, electronics, passports etc., secure and helps prevent theft. The Master Lock SafeSpace can be wrapped round a fixed object at the office or in a hotel room when traveling for work.
