Hello, I’m Anna Scheller, the CEO, and Founder of Capri Temporary Housing. As a corporate housing company, the safety, security, and peace of mind of our guests during their stay are among our top priorities. In this comprehensive guide, I’ll share valuable tips to help you make your corporate housing experience safe and worry-free. Whether you’re a seasoned business traveler or relocating for work, these safety practices will ensure a comfortable and stress-free stay, whether you choose Capri Temporary Housing or another provider.
- Choose Reputable Corporate Housing Providers: When selecting corporate housing, it’s essential to choose reputable providers like Capri Temporary Housing. Look for companies with a proven track record, positive guest reviews, and a commitment to safety and security. Reputable providers invest in secure facilities and offer professional on-site support to address any concerns promptly.
- Research the Neighborhood: Before booking your corporate housing, take the time to research the neighborhood’s safety and amenities. Look for locations with low crime rates and easy access to essential services, such as hospitals, pharmacies, and grocery stores. This information will help you make an informed decision about your accommodation.
- Check for Security Features: Many apartment communities provide gated access and round the clock security patrols. While these features are not fail-proof, such measures, in addition to your own diligence, can provide a layer of deterrence for would-be mischief makers. Capri doesn’t recommend that you rely solely on these features for your personal security, however with the additional tips provided here, they can make for a safer stay in corporate apartments. Be sure to check with your chosen provider about these features at the property you are being offered.
- Inspect the Accommodation: Upon entering your apartment, inspect the accommodation thoroughly. Ensure that all doors and windows have functional locks and that there are no signs of forced entry or tampering. Report any security concerns to the housing provider immediately.
- Secure Your Belongings: While corporate housing providers take measures to enhance security, it’s essential to take responsibility for your belongings. Keep valuables, important documents, and electronics in a secure location, such as a personal safe or locked cabinet. Avoid leaving personal items unattended in common areas.
- Be Cautious with Strangers: Treat your corporate housing community like any other residential neighborhood. Be cautious with strangers and avoid sharing personal information with people you don’t know. If someone you don’t recognize attempts to enter your accommodation, verify their identity with the housing management or security personnel.
- Familiarize Yourself with Emergency Procedures: Before settling into your corporate housing, familiarize yourself with emergency procedures. Locate fire exits, emergency assembly points, and fire extinguishers. In case of an emergency, remain calm and follow the established protocols to ensure your safety.
- Practice Responsible Internet Usage: As an essential part of our modern lives, the internet plays a significant role in corporate housing. Practice responsible internet usage by ensuring your devices have up-to-date security software and strong passwords. Avoid accessing sensitive information on public networks and be cautious with clicking on unfamiliar links or attachments.
- Be Mindful of Fire Safety: Fire safety is crucial in any accommodation. Never leave cooking appliances unattended, and familiarize yourself with the location of fire alarms and fire extinguishers. In the event of a fire, leave the building immediately and contact emergency services.
- Communicate with Housing Management: If you have any security concerns or questions about the safety measures in place, don’t hesitate to communicate with the housing management. At Capri Temporary Housing, we value open communication and are here to address any queries you may have.
- Be Aware of Surroundings: Maintain situational awareness during your stay in corporate housing. Be aware of your surroundings, especially when entering or exiting the property. Report any suspicious activity or individuals to the housing management or security personnel.
- Prepare for Severe Weather: Depending on your location, severe weather events may occur. Stay informed about weather forecasts and prepare accordingly. Follow any guidance provided by the housing management regarding safety measures during extreme weather conditions.
- Embrace Cultural Experiences: When you aren’t focusing on work, take the opportunity to explore the local culture and attractions. Embracing cultural experiences enriches your stay and provides a well-rounded experience.
As you venture into the world of corporate housing, your safety and security is a top priority. By choosing reputable providers, prioritizing neighborhood safety, and taking personal precautions, you can enjoy a worry-free and comfortable stay.
