7 effective ways to enhance business security
A secure business is a safe business, enhance security measures around your company and not only do you protect the premises, it keeps staff safe as well.
Taking the right stance with security is important and we have a number of tips for you at Guard Patrol Products to give you ideas on how to protect your premises.
1. Hire guards
Static or mobile security guards act as a strong visual presence at business premises. They monitor the movements of suspicious persons, check people in and out of buildings, patrol the interior and exterior of property and ensure your buildings and staff members are safe and free from danger.
2. Use CCTV systems
Closed circuit television cameras are another visual deterrent that is particularly effective in the fight against crime. Place them in strategic areas, closely monitor key areas of the company, keep a watchful eye on intruders and staff members at the same time.
3. Fit access control
Manage the movement of people going in and out of your business premises, use access control systems and be in command of entranceways. With CCTV you closely monitor all areas of your business, sure it’s a bit ‘Big Brother’ but who cares as long as your premises are safe!
4. Upgrade lighting
Do a visual inspection of security lighting. Walk around the exterior of your premises at night and see if there are any weak spots or dark areas that could easily be targeted by intruders. Upgrade lighting where necessary and bathe your business in a wash of high powered light.
5. Check alarms
Are your intruder alarms up to scratch? As well as being functional is the alarm system effective enough for your business, does it cover all zones and protect the premises from unwanted attention? The latest high-tech systems are the first line in defence, pick a proficient alarm system and arm your premises from potential attacks
6. Train staff members
Teach staff members how to be extra vigilant at work. Give everyone security briefings, show them what to do in the event of an emergency and raise awareness of crime within the workplace to safeguard against criminal attacks.
