Getting locked out of your office is not just frustrating, it can also throw a major wrench in the practical operation of your business, and even pose security risks in the event of a fire or criminal activity occurring in your business while you are locked out of. Here’s a guide on what to do if you get locked outside of your office, as prepared by the 24/7 lockout service experts here at Chicago Locksmiths.
Hopefully you have already been thinking about this, and have a spare office key in your car, wallet, purse, or somewhere else secure. If this is the case, simply use your spare key to open up your office, retrieve your original key, and then put the spare key back in a safe and secure place. DON’T LOSE YOUR SPARE KEY!!
Can you get in touch with another coworker, employee, superviser, or manager who might have a working key to the office? Try contacting them, and retrieve their key, and bring it back to them once you retrieve your original. If you’re the only person who has a key, consider giving a spare key to another person who works at the office to carry around in the future.
Other Office Lockout Entry Methods
Check to see if the back door or any sizeable windows are left unlocked - which, by the way, they shouldn’t be, as it’s insecure - however this is the one case in which you might hope that they are unlocked. Just make sure to relock the door or window after you use it to make sure a burglar can’t enter that way either.
