10 Reasons to Use CameraScan Video Surveillance at Your Dairy
Washington has the nation’s most comprehensive agricultural safety program—and is one of three states to enforce safety rules on farms with fewer than 11 workers. As an industry, agriculture is vulnerable to risk and unique security challenges that, if unaddressed, can threaten the legacy of your farm. Here are 10 reasons to think about CameraScan video surveillance:
1. Animal safety
A first principle among dairy farmers in Washington is that happy, contented cows give more milk — and better quality milk. CameraScan routinely recommends and installs cameras in the nursery, hospital, milking areas and pens to ensure your cows are monitored 24/7/365 in crystal-clear HD.
2. Ensure compliance-related protocols & procedures aren’t skipped
Highly-trained CameraScan technicians work with you to identify key workplace areas and install the right camera in the right place for optimal supervision. This ensures compliance-related protocols and procedures are not skipped during milking times.
3. Detect equipment problems
Video surveillance cameras can detect equipment that needs repair or is operating in an unsafe manner through video monitoring 24/7. One place we regularly install cameras is in the milk room to ensure equipment is used properly to prevent waste and contamination.
4. Video documentation for decreased liability
Recorded video can help defend your operation from wrongful lawsuits related to slip-and-fall accidents and more. This documentation can help prove you’re providing a safe workplace.
5. Boost profits, productivity and safety
The presence of surveillance cameras can make employees more aware of how their time is spent. And better employee productivity is a key driver of your farm’s performance and profitability.
6. Protect your investment with warranties, support and growth planning
CameraScan’s highly-qualified and experienced technicians work with you before and after installation to ensure your satisfaction is guaranteed. This means equipment is configured correctly, working properly and that you are trained to use your system—and have ongoing support just a phone call away. Equipment and installation are covered by a 2-year warranty. You can defer payments until 2017 and start seeing a return on your investment immediately while keeping capital expenditures low.
7. Buy local
CameraScan has been based in North Bend, WA since 1987. We have teams in WA, OR and CA and in-person service is just a call or click away.
