What to do for an Office Lockout

Sometimes, the unexpected happens. We can’t always predict what will happen, but we can be prepared for the unexpected. An example of an unexpected occurrence that you can prepare yourself for is in the event that you find yourself locked out of your office. Following are some tips on what you can do if you find that you are locked out of your office.

 

Keep a Spare office Key at all time!

If you work in an office building and there are no rules against doing so, create a spare key. You can leave your spare key in your car or on your cell phone. If your cell phone has a back that pops off pretty easily, you might see if you can put your spare key in there. Most people keep their cell phone on them at all times so even if you were to accidentally lock yourself out of your office, your cell phone will likely be in your pocket.

You might not want to give anyone else your spare key, though. You could be opening yourself up to liability if your key were to fall into the wrong hands and someone without the correct credentials were to gain access to your office building. This is especially important if you deal with confidential information or records.

GET FELLOW EMPLOYEES’ CONTACT INFORMATION

Many of us work in office buildings with other colleagues. If you are not the only one who has a set of keys for your office building, it’s a good idea to get contact information from the people you work with. If you get locked out of your office, you might be able to phone a colleague who can swing by to unlock the office for you. Just having the contact information of a few of your colleagues can be beneficial if you get locked out.

Your boss is also likely to have a spare set of keys to get you back into your office. You might not feel comfortable calling them to let them know you are locked out, but it is an option you should consider.
