Security Breach

Kona Shame

One day, I left my security card inside and was locked out. Nobody was at the front desk but the office dogs so I thought maybe I could enlist their help. I rallied up the troops and ran towards the door, hoping they would figure it out. Security BreachMuch to my amusement, they all came barrelling around the corner and ran right up to the door. Low and behold, the motion sensor registered their movement and I was let in from the outside!

I have used this trick on several occasions, however, something was different about today. When I arrived to work this morning there was a green button next to the security door that I had not seen before. I shrugged it off until I sat down at my desk and began checking my email. The first one I opened went like this:

Push to ExitA door security change was made on the front entry glass door. The glass door will NOT unlock automatically from the inside. Please note the glass door will be locked from 7:45am to 4:30pm as previously programmed, however, from the inside you now MUST press the green button to your left, and wait 2 seconds to exit during the hours of 7:45am to 4:30pm.

I pressed them on the issue, genuinely wondering if this was standard procedure, or if this was perhaps because of the dogs’ ability to let anybody in who cheered them on. I received a resounding “yes” to the latter. Who would have thought we would need to revise our front door security to accommodate our furry friends? And who had to explain this to the security company?? Regardless, in honor of their efforts, I present to you the Wall of Dog Shame (the first one is my boy, Bucky. He thinks it’s game):

This week’s [NSFW] spotlight is on “How to Determine the Best Electrical Safety Practices for Your Plant“. Companies must acknowledge hazards that exist in their facilities and operations and agree upon the safe work practices employees will employ when working on or near them. Training then follows to ensure employee knowledge and monitoring processes established to ensure compliance. Variations of this model exist worldwide. Follow the link above to learn more.

tl;dr – Upgraded our (probably expensive) security system to prevent the office dogs from letting people into the building by wagging their tails. Dog shaming at its finest! Learn how to determine the best electrical safety practices for your plant in this week’s [NSFW] spotlight.

Don’t forget to check out the giveaway. All this dog shaming has made me want to spoil them 🙂

Have a great week!
