What are Cannabis Security Procedures? Procedures, aka Standard Operating Procedures (or SOPs) are step-by-step employee instructions for how to perform a work task. Formats for good quality security procedures can vary, but all legitimate formats should begin with discussing the purpose and scope of the procedure, followed by the role within the organization who is responsible for overseeing the correct implementation and updating of the procedure.
After the opening paragraphs, our security SOPs give a detailed step-by-step instruction to the employees. This section can be updated with specific security rules from your local or state regulations.
Do I Only Need Security SOPs for my Cannabis Business?
In cannabis businesses, there are procedures for a wide range of tasks. Cannabis security procedures are considered critical to the successful functioning of the security system. Implementing hardware systems is just the beginning. Then, security procedures that cover all critical functions must be established.
In addition to Cannabis Security Procedures, you might also want to obtain Cultivation Standard Operating Procedures, Manufacturing Standard Operating Procedures, or Dispensary Standard Operating Procedures. Click on the relevant link to learn more.
What are the Key Considerations for Cannabis Security SOPs?
Dispensary Security Procedures vary from the other license types because Dispensaries serve the public, so more time and effort must go into access control and customer safety.
Cultivation security SOPs will be similar to manufacturing security SOPs and distribution security SOPs. This is because all of these license types are not open to the public and simply protect a private facility and the cannabis entering, exiting and being stored at the facility.
