How to Stay Safe at Work

 

AMP Security

When working for AMP Security, you know all about telling customers how to stay safe by installing a home security system. But are you thinking about your own safety each day? Several of us go throughout our daily routine without giving much thought to work safety but it’s always good to brush up on safe habits that you can practice in order to stay safe while at work. Here are some of our suggestions.

Always Look Where You’re Walking

It can be tempting to look at a cellphone to check for text messages or focus on work while walking instead of actually paying attention to where you’re going, but this can lead to injury when you walk into that pothole or slip on something you didn’t notice. When walking, put all distractions away and focus on getting to your destination.

Wear Sensible Shoes

When you’re on your feet all day, investing in some good shoes is well worth it. Wearing shoes that aren’t designed for walking could lead to blisters and sore feet. Look into purchasing a pair of shoes that are designed for active people and consider spending a good amount. Sometimes, you pay for what you get and with shoes that is most often the case.

Be Smart When Lifting

If you are ever in a situation that requires lifting something heavy such as a box or furniture, follow these steps: First gauge how heavy the item is by moving it with your foot. Then, bend with your knees and not your back. Use your legs to help you lift the item in order to prevent straining your back and arms. Once you have lifted the item, don’t jerk around or make sudden movements as this could lead to hurting yourself.

Clean Up Spills Right Away

If you notice a spill, clean it up right away rather than waiting. It could be quite some time before that spill is cleaned up and not taking care of the issue when first noticed could lead to someone else slipping and falling. To prevent injury, handle the matter or call someone to take care of it before it’s forgotten.

Notify Authorities if Threatened

If a co-worker or a potential customer has threatened you, notify a manager right away. If needed, authorities will also need to be notified. If you ever feel at risk, it’s best to tell someone rather than keeping it to yourself because it’s always better to be on the safe side. You should never have to worry about feeling unsafe at work.

 

We hope these tips help make you feel more safe and secure while working for AMP Security. If you ever have any questions or concerns about work safety, please let us know and we’ll do our best to make sure you have the info you need.

 

Questions to Ask When Selling Security

AMP Security Jobs

 

AMP Security jobs provide you with a great opportunity to receive a good income and find growth in your sales career; but are you asking the right questions as you approach potential customers? There are several questions you can ask someone in order to help provide stellar service and help them find a home security option that is right for them. Here are just a few questions that should always be asked when selling any home security system.

Ask About Past Problems

When approaching someone regarding a security system, you have the opportunity to ask about what past problems people have experienced with home security. This helps you to better understand their needs as a customer and also brings to light several reasons why having a home security system is a great idea. If they’ve used another company in the past, you can also talk about what problems they had and address those.

Ask About Price Range

Nobody is going to want to buy something that is way out of their price range so before starting big, ask about what price range people are looking at. This will give you a great place to start and will help you provide the best options for home security. This also will show that you care by working with people in order to find something that works best with their budget.

Ask About Commitment

Often times people will listen to a sales pitch but have no real plans of actually committing to a purchase. Be upfront and ask about how willing they are to commit. If they aren’t ready, this gives you the opportunity to answer any questions or alleviate any concerns they may have about actually moving forward.

Ask About Timing

Everyone is going to have different needs when it comes to setting up a home security system. Some may want it installed right away while others may have less flexible schedules. Ask your customer how soon they will need their system installed so that you can properly set up expectations. Not setting up timing expectations will only lead to a confused and frustrated customer later on.

 

Ask For Referrals

Once you have a satisfied customer, ask for referrals. If someone is honestly happy with the service and product they’ve received, referring you to others should come easy. It doesn’t ever hurt to ask because at the very worst they won’t refer you but in best-case scenarios they will refer you to their friends and neighbors.

 

Asking these questions when talking to all prospects is extremely important and will help create open communication and will provide you with a clear understanding of the customer’s needs and concerns. AMP Security jobs are a great way to build effective communication skills, if you ever are unsure of what questions to ask, don’t hesitate to ask for help.

How to Protect Yourself From the Heat

Jobs that require you to work outside year-round have several perks: you get to move around rather than sit at a desk all day, you are exposed to sunshine which is proven to boost your mood, and you get to enjoy the seasons as they come and go. AMP Security knows that it can also get hot out, especially around this time of year and we want to provide you with tips on how you can do your AMP Security job and stay cool during the summer.

 

Wear Appropriate Clothing

Clothing should always be lightweight and loose-fitting in order to keep you cool during warmer months. We highly recommend avoiding black clothing as this is the quickest way to absorb heat from the sun. A wide-brimmed hat and some sunglasses are also great ways to block out the sun. Just make sure that your attire adhere to the standards of Security and that you look professional at all times.

 

Drink Lots of Water

Drink plenty of water before, during, and after your shift when it’s hot out. It’s good practice to drink water on a daily basis anyway but you should really enforce this rule when the temperature rises in order to prevent overexertion. Exercise only increases that need to stay hydrated. It’s also smart to avoid caffeine and sugary drinks as these will only dehydrate you further.

 

Give Yourself Breaks

Jobs that involve walking in the heat can wear you out if you don’t give yourself a break every once in awhile. Avoid the urge to keep on going if you feel like you should stop and rest for a moment. Your body is telling you that it needs the rest so you should listen to it. A couple breaks a day or as needed will help keep you going.

 

Wear Sunscreen

Even if it looks cloudy outside, never leave the house without applying some sunscreen on a hot day. Protecting your skin now is the best thing you can do to prevent problems such as skin cancer later on in life. An SPF of 30 or higher is best and should be reapplied throughout the day.

 

We hope these tips help you enjoy the beautiful summer weather. Stay safe out there!

Why Everyone Should Have a Home Security System

AMP Security jobs

 

AMP Security jobs can provide you with a flexible career and great income but there’s more to it than that—you have the opportunity to provide others with a safer environment that provides them with peace of mind in knowing that their home is secure from potential threats. Here are just a few of the reasons why we think everyone should have an AMP Security System in place.

 

Protection From Intruders

This is the most common reason people choose to install a home security system. Intruders are always a threat, even if the safest of communities. A security system is the first step in alarming you and AMP security that someone is attempting to break in. Burglars are also not as likely to bother with a home that has security set up rather than one that doesn’t because they don’t want to risk getting caught.

 

Fire Protection

Security systems don’t just prevent intrusions, they have several ongoing jobs, including fire detecting. A smoke detector often alarms you before it’s too late but a security system can alert you earlier and help you determine areas where extra heat is presence. Not only that, the system will alert authorities and send help on the way so that you can focus on getting to safety.

 

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Security systems can also detect carbon monoxide in the air. These fumes can be released from stoves, burning wood, charcoal, and other appliances throughout the home. Because humans cannot detect carbon monoxide in the air, it’s crucial to have a detector present to alert you of any problems. This is extremely important because carbon monoxide poisoning can lead to serious health problems and even death.

 

Medical Assistance

Medical concerns are a real issue that impact families regularly. AMP Security Systems provide options for people to dispatch medical help immediately. When dealing with a health crisis, every second matters and being able to call for help at the press of a button can save someone’s life.

 

Protection While You’re Away

The last thing you want to do while on vacation is worry about the state of your home. Empty homes attract criminals but a security system will alert authorities of any break-ins so that you can rest easy knowing that your valuables are safe and secure.

 

These are all common reasons why people choose to have home security systems installed. Knowing these facts will help you provide your potential customers with insight into why it’s important to have a home security system for their saf
