Cell phone storage
lockers are used by many organizations to both protect cell phones from
theft and to prevent cell phone users from abusing cell phones. People have become so dependent on these
devices that they are constantly talking, surfing the web, emailing, and texting
one another throughout the day.
Cell phones are actually replacing face to face conversations with people
of all generations who have adopted their use.
It is not
anyone’s place to put limits on what another person does with his or her
personal time, or how he or she chooses to interact with other members of the
human species. However, for those
who prefer to live in an electronic world, certain behaviors specific to cell
phone use cannot be tolerated during work or school hours.
Because of this,
practically every organization is going to need cell phone
storage lockers if people continue to use the devices to the point of
overusing them the way we already see them doing in bars, cafes, restaurants,
bus terminals, bus stops, and even nature parks of all
government employees may decide to send personal text messages about their work
activities to family members or significant others. During the normal course of
conversation, without any malice intended, they could inadvertently divulge
sensitive information that could then go viral on the Internet or even worse, be
leaked to TV media.
At the lower levels
of government this could affect law enforcement investigations. At the highest levels of the Federal
Government, it could affect national security. Therefore, it is wise for any government
building on any level to require that personal phones, and especially smart
phones, be kept in cell phone storage lockers during the employee’s work hours.
Another place where
we see a great deal of cell phone abuse is in our public schools. Students claim that they need their phones for
emergencies. They get this from
their parents who make the same claim.
Schools require phones to be kept on silent and forbid students from
making calls on campus unless it is an emergency that the school would call 911
Students get around
this rule by texting personal messages and not paying attention in class. In colleges, adult students of all
people use cell phones to cheat on tests and download plagiarized papers to turn
in to professors. Cell phone
storage lockers are the only way to stop this abuse. If every class room has a place for
a student to put his or her locker,
then the phone is safely stored until the end of the session and no abuse is
possible. Of course, if there
really is an emergency that requires the use of a single cell phone to save the
day, the teacher has a master key that can open all the cell phone locker
combination locks at once.
Offices also should
phone storage lockers for their employees. Personal calls and emails from employee
workstations can be strictly monitored by the phone system and IT director. However, wireless devices cannot be
monitored and therefore present too much of a temptation to email or text when
work should be done instead.
phone lockers are much larger than they need to be to store just a cell
phone. They can hold hand held
computers, wallets, car keys, and jewelry as well, so they are really ideal as
all purpose employee lockers.
