5 Security Tips for When Your Business is Closed

Business alarms - who should respond?

The Coronavirus outbreak has meant that many businesses have had to close their doors temporarily. Although you might not be able to use or protect your premises like you would do normally, there are simple measures you can take to make sure it’s safe and secure until restrictions are lifted.

Lock up

Make sure every door and window is locked and no valuables have been left out on show. Where you can, make sure any equipment, no matter the cost, has been put away in a lockable drawer or cupboard. Should somebody gain entry to your property, make it as hard as possible for them to find what they’re looking for.

 Check your CCTV

If you have CCTV, make sure it’s in good working order. Check every now and then that the view isn’t obstructed by branches or debris and that your cameras are covering the most vulnerable areas of your property including your doors and windows.

Use your shutters

If you have roller shutters, make sure you’re using them. They add another level of protection to your business and can stop prying eyes.

Consider mobile patrols

Security service providers are classed as essential workers, so businesses like ours are still able to operate, protecting your property when you need it most. Mobile patrols are randomly timed foot patrols that are more cost-effective than a static guard. They can help to maintain a presence, day and night, when you may not be able to.

Think about key holding

If you’re expecting deliveries to your business premises whilst the restrictions are in place, consider a key holding service. A set of keys are anonymously coded and held in a key safe, only released under strict protocol. We offer this service to clients across Lancashire, on hand to help with lock and unlock services when they are needed.
