Parking permits are often the first step to employee safety. Parking permits help you to more clearly know which employees are actually on your company’s premises and which ones are not. By keeping track of who may have come in early or is staying late – you’ll have a good sense of employee safety. Employees deserve to be kept safe if they are working alone, or nearly alone, in your office / building. Through the use of parking permits, your security staff can easily be aware of who is on the promises at all times.

Having parking permits can help if there is trouble with an employee’s car during the day. “How’s that,” you may ask. Well, here’s one example… Your security staff does a routine inspection of the office parking lot. They find a car with a flat tire. Immediately they check the parking sticker and are instantly able to tell whom the car belongs to. They call the employee and help him / her call an auto mechanic who comes to fix the tire while still at work. The employee doesn’t miss much work taking care of the flat tire. This also helps to keep your employees happy, as they aren’t coming out to the parking lot at the end of the day to a flat tire!
