  • Is the door unlocked when store is open and locked when store is closed?
    • Is anyone coming in store after hours?
    • OSHA compliance requires the store to be unlocked during business hours

  • Are my lights (and other equipment) shut down when the store is closed?
  • Are employee clock in/out times accurate?
