Conduct a risk assessment
Before you do anything else, you should carry out a risk assessment on your business premises. Perhaps
you have been a victim of crime before and want to find out where any weaknesses lie. Or maybe you
haven’t fallen prey to anything just yet, but you are worried about rising crime in your area, or other
businesses have been reporting incidents. Whatever your circumstances, a thorough risk assessment will
provide a great starting point for you.
One of the easiest ways you can protect your business premises is with CCTV. Having visible CCTV cameras
is a real deterrent to criminals and can significantly lower your risk of being a victim of anti-social
behaviour, theft or criminal damage. If you were unlucky enough to be targeted, then having CCTV in place
could still continue to work in your favour. Having video evidence to pass on to the police will really
improve the chances of them catching the people to blame – ensuring that justice is served. Luckily you for,
we are the specialists in CCTV installations that customers trust and can design a bespoke system for you.
If you have not done so already, it’s a good idea to install security lighting. If your business premises is
accessed by a dark alleyway or a secluded entranceway, this is a prime target for intruders who will be able
to break and enter without being seen. Having adequate lighting in these areas will make it much harder for
them to access your property without being noticed, and it will act as a real deterrent. Plus, it will make
coming to and from your business premises safer for you and your staff as well.
You can have all the fancy security features that you like, but one of the most important lines of defence in
a business premises is strong locks on your windows and doors. Thieves are very adept at picking, forcing,
or just simply breaking locks. If your locks haven’t been updated for a while or you are worried about their
integrity, then it’s a good idea to call in a locksmith. They’ll be able to advise you on the best locks to
protect your business, allowing you to shut up shop with confidence.
Intruder alarms are another great way to protect your business premises. We are comfortable working in
properties of all sizes and layouts and will work with you to design a security system that suits the building
and your own needs. An alarm system is an effective deterrent around the clock and will protect your
property whether it is occupied or empty. As well as installing brand new systems, we can also upgrade
existing systems that no longer meet a client’s requirements.
Listen to your team
Last but not least; listen to your staff. All too often business owners think that the responsibility for
protecting their company premises lies entirely with them – but your team can be a valuable source of
ideas too! So if your staff come to you with concerns or feedback on how the security of the building can be
improved, be sure to take that on board. It’s amazing what you can overlook, so a fresh pair of eyes really
