is it legal to install cc cameras inside the shop floor and what are the difficulties one has to face in convincing the union in this matter or the management should drop this idea please help me.
Hi, You need not drop the idea of having CC Cameras in shop floor only thing is your Union will certainly resist it which needs to be faced with vaild points in the initial days. Regards Amith R.
Dear Seena
The Tamilnadu government was issued a notification last year to fix the cc camera in a factory where more than 100 employees are working. I am attaching the daily news paper cutting for your reference and records. Most of the union and employees will give objection for fixing this because they will think that the management will watch their day to day activities and also their unwanted action/wasting times. Kindly explain about this fixing is not for this purpose of watching the employees but to safe guard the materials and things from the unknown person and also to monitor safety.

Dear Seena,
It is very much legal to install CCTV cameras inside the shop floor. You require to notify the employees about this and need to display a poster saying "Property under electronic surveyllance". You need not worry about the unions, Those issues will always be there. You need to explain the unions the purpose of the CCTV installation.
Many company's are installing CCTVs at shop floors not only for security reasons but also for safety and productivity purposes. CCTVs can be used for doing JSA ( Job Safety Analysis), to correct any safety violations, to maintain hazard free working environment, for time and motion study etc.
Your intentions should be clear so as to convince the unions. If you are sending signals that the CCTVs will be installed to spy on employees/workers then your task will become difficult.

Dear Seena
Several discussions have taken place on this earlier. Please use the Research tab on the top of this page and go through them first.
