Theft or Death: Is Your Company Safe?

One of the biggest worries as a business owner is someone trying to steal what you’ve worked so hard to build. Not only that, if you’ve got a team to lead you’ve got to make sure that they’re safe as well as keeping yourself safe from potential attacks. The question you need to be asking yourself is: is your company actually safe from attack? If your answer is anything from a solid yes, then you need to take action so that your business, your team, and you are safe from people that may want to sabotage your company. Here are some tips on how to do exactly that. 

Hire security guards

Hiring muscle to defend you is one of the fastest ways of adding an extra layer of security to your business. If you’re selling particularly expensive products then it’s essential to have some sort of security team. Or perhaps you run a nightclub and also need to look after the welfare of your customers as well as your staff members. You can hire security guards to man the doors of your business and make sure that everyone is as safe as possible.

Use access control systems

Some businesses hold onto personal and private information from their customers and their employees. A GP surgery, for example, obtains records for every single patient registered at their surgery and those records need to be kept away from prying eyes. For these kinds of situations, having a locked room for these records is a must, but to make sure that nobody unauthorised gets hold of personal information, you should consider installing access control systems in your business premises. Not only will the information remain safe, but so will your team too.

Install security cameras and alarms

When your business is closed for the night and everyone has gone home is when it’s at the largest risk of theft. It’s easier to break into an unmanned building and steal what you’re after. However, if you install security cameras and alarms, you can sleep soundly at night knowing that if anyone does attempt to break in, that you’ll be able to catch the culprit. Many alarm systems come with a feature that will alert both you and the police of the break-in, meaning that they won’t get too far before being caught.

Invest in silent alarms

Finally, some jobs are higher risk than others, and those that involve dealing with the public when there’s a chance that they could become violent either physically or verbally are especially dangerous. Protect yourself and your team members by investing in silent alarms for these kinds of roles. If you or an employee feels threatened, you can press a button underneath your desk to alert others in the building that they’re in danger.

Safety in the workplace is essential and you should take it very seriously. Take these tips on board to keep your business, your staff, your customers and yourself safe from harm.
