As any ag retailer knows, his or her operations are only as good as the employees that work there. And uneducated or uninformed employees can compromise the most professional facility. It’s for this reason that constant and continual employee training is one the keys to maintaining proper dealership security and safety, no matter how large or small an outlet happens to be.
We take a look at some of the ways leading ag retailers keep their employees well educated and up-to-speed on the latest security and safety procedures through extensive training and established protocols.
Key Points To Consider
A. Besides safety training, ag retailers should make certain to train employees in how to spot suspicious individuals and never release products without confirming a buyer’s identity.
B. Employee training should be conducted as often as possible, with a regular monthly schedule preferred. If possible, retailers should have assigned employees who perform these training classes and continually update other employees on safety and security concerns.
C. Regular inventory checks on safety and security supplies should be performed to make certain needed items are not missing.
D. When possible, use the Internet and Web sites to keep employees current with their training options.
