Although you might not be spending as much time as you’d like at your business property right now, there are things you can do to get ahead when you return to work. Thinking about your business security and how you can give it a spring clean is one of them.
The best way to give your security a spring clean is to be really methodical about it. Think about the areas you need to protect. This could include access points like doors and windows, technology you have in place such as CCTV and intruder alarms, not forgetting your employees – especially those who you trust with key holding duties and other responsibilities above and beyond their normal day-to-day role.
Once you’ve compiled your list, jot down all the measures you currently have in place and think about how effective they are. For example, you might have security cameras covering all your access points, but one or two might be obscured by tree branches or foliage. You might have an employee who responds to alarm activations for you, but lives too far away to get there quickly and safely.
When you have a list of all the improvements you want to make, keep a note of the ones you can do quickly and easily by yourself, and the ones you may need some help with, then do a little research.
Security service providers like KeyPlus can help you with several areas that might be on your list, including key holding and alarm response services. They can also help you with additional security measures which might not have crossed your mind, such as mobile patrol services.
When looking for a security services provider, look for a company who are approved by the Security Industry Authority (SIA) – a national organisation responsible for regulating the private security industry. SIA approved companies, like KeyPlus, have demonstrated their commitment to providing the best customer service to their clients and have licensed staff – a sign of quality and best practice in the industry.
