How eBay Fights ORC When it comes to the assumption that eBay is an active fence for stolen goods, Senior Asset Protection Executive Paul Jones is quick to set the record straight. "eBay is fully committed to providing a safe, secure online shopping experience to millions of people globally. eBay has zero tolerance for criminal activity on its platforms; counterfeits and stolen items are illegal and not welcome on any of our sites. We believe collaboration and cooperation are the best ways to combat fraud and organized retail crime, and we work in a productive way with retailers around the globe through a number of programs and efforts" says Paul Jones in a recent interview.

OSHA Wants Retailers to Make Black Friday Safer for Workers OSHA is encouraging retail employers to take precautions to prevent worker injuries during Black Friday and other major sales events during the holiday season. "Crowd control and proper planning are critical to preventing injuries and deaths,” said Dr. David Michaels, assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health. "OSHA urges retailers to adopt a crowd management plan during the holiday shopping season that includes a few simple guidelines."

Crowd management plans should include:

-  On-site trained security personnel or police officers.
-  Barricades or rope lines for pedestrians that do not start right in front of the store’s entrance.
-  Implementing crowd control measures well in advance of customers arriving at the store.
-  Emergency procedures in place to address potential dangers.
-  Explaining approach and entrance procedures to the arriving public.
-  Not allowing additional customers to enter the store when it reaches its maximum occupancy level.
-  Not blocking or locking exit doors.

OSHA has created a fact sheet outlining these and other safety measures, Crowd Management Safety Guidelines for Retailers, and distributed a letter to major retailers about preventing crowd-related injuries.
That letter can be found here. (Source ehstoday.com)

Thought Challenge



"Culture"


by Matt McGarrigle
Loss Prevention Lead
Sears Ontario, Canada


Today in the world of retail we break down shrinkage into groups (External, internal, administrative errors and vendor theft/fraud. We as a group have always been chasing the ultimate goal of reducing the shrinkage in our stores while driving sales to increase profits. If I would suggest that the root cause for each of the above categories on the success or failure relies on the "culture" of your organization would you agree?

Culture within the organization is the heartbeat of any success or failure. It's the willingness of everyone making a positive impact towards success and unfortunately it's also the direct link to failure. If you apply a positive culture towards shrink reduction you address each category at the root cause. Your associates are your number one driving force and if the associates are engaged in that type of culture then they will take ownership in the business. They are your foundation for LP programs. Think of it this way, how would your associates prevent external shrink if you have an internal problem? They won't identify or correct administrative errors or vendor issues because of poor engagement.

Obtaining that positive culture takes a total effort from everyone in the organization starting with your leaders. Associates are not going to buy into the "Do as I say" and "Not as I do" method. Leading by example is the only way. I recently read discussions about paying associates higher wages to prevent internal theft, I disagree. It's like giving an incentive reward asking "please don't steal from me". Paying higher wages because their worth it absolutely. Communication will always be an important key to educate and promote any program you're trying to implement and a big part of that communication is obtaining feedback from the associates. Granted some will challenge just because of change and others will face roadblocks. Find out who or what is creating the roadblock and correct it. Have your corporate policies and job descriptions in place and stick to them. Allowing terms like up to the store managers discretion will only change your culture in a negative way creating poor engagement among associates if the policies only apply sometimes. Remember corporate not store specific policies.

Technology today allows us in so many ways to perform our task without personal contact and yet the most important element we ask from our associates in retail is providing excellent personal customer service with customers, That's what benefits both sales and loss prevention programs is great customer service that we can only obtain from a positive culture.

Positive or negative culture starts with one person, will you be the one? And which one will you be?

CargoNet - Holiday Advisory
 

Dear Valued Colleague,

As you prepare to spend this upcoming holiday weekend with friends and family, please keep in mind that cargo thieves will not be taking any time off.

CargoNet's analysis of historical cargo theft data shows that the rate of cargo theft increases over holiday weekends.

With that being said, we ask that you remain vigilant by paying special attention to the steps below, which may already be included in your company’s list of security protocols. These eleven steps can help your company prevent theft, as well as aid in cargo recovery in the event that you suffer a loss.

1. Ask local police agencies to make routine checks of facilities during holiday down time.

2. Avoid having loaded trailers sit unattended when employees are not present. If loaded trailers do need to sit unattended, be sure that they are parked in secure areas.

3. Make sure that both security managers and drivers have accurate license plate, VIN, and descriptive information for tractors, trailers, containers, and container chassis’. Police agencies will need this information to open a investigation in the event of an incident.

4. Consider deploying covert tracking devices in product and on trailers. If using tracking devices, be sure to geo-fence all stationary trailers that are not being actively monitored.

5. Secure all tractors with high-security locking devices, such as, air-cuff and tractor steering joint locks.

6. Secure all trailers (loaded and unloaded) with high-security ISO 17712 compliant barrier seals in combination with hardened padlocks. Utilize king pin locks for unattached trailers.

7. Check to make sure that facility lighting, back-up generators, alarm system(s) and surveillance equipment are all in good working order.

8. Never treat any alarm signal as a “false alarm”. When targeting warehouse locations, cargo thieves tend to trip facility alarm systems multiple times before breaking-in to give law enforcement and facility managers the impression that the alarm system is malfunctioning.

9. Remove keys from all facility equipment, especially motorized pallet jacks and forklifts.

10. Document and report all suspicious activity that occurs in and around a facility to security personnel and the CargoNet operations center. This information can be critical to law enforcement in the event of a cargo theft incident.

11. If you are a victim of a theft, immediately notify local law enforcement, and call the CargoNet operations center. The CargoNet operations center will be standing by over the holiday in the event that you need support.


To report a cargo theft, call 1-888-595-CNET (2638).

From all of us at CargoNet, have a happy, safe and healthy Thanksgiving.

Best regards,
Anthony
