Lighting has been used as a means for crime prevention since the dawn of time. Properly applied lighting has a positive influence on both safety and security. Make sure that you have adequate lighting around doors, windows, walkways and parking areas. Consider what lights you leave on inside your building after closing. Is the emergency lighting system (if available) in good working order? What action will you take if a power failure happens? Lighting is one of the most cost effective ways to provide a safe and secure working environment for your employees.  Criminals look for the cover of darkness in selecting a vulnerable entry point or a place to ambush others from.  Deny this opportunity by applying the proper amount of lighting.
