Top 10 Tips to Protecting Your Business Premises from Crime

Did you know that crime against businesses makes up approx 22% of all recorded crime in the UK?

Take a look at our top 10 tips to protecting your business from being the victim of crime.

  1. Secure your premises

You will need to contact a commercial security company to strengthen doors, fit window locks and install security lighting and a door entry system. Having an entry phone system installed means you are able to see the visitor and their ID before they enter your premises. This means added protection to your business, assets and employees. For professional installation services in the London and Kent area, visit this website.

This statement also applies to landlords and homeowners. Your property should be protected at all times.

  1. Risk assessment

This is needed to identify where your business is most venerable. It is important to carry out a thorough assessment to see what areas need to be changed, which can include security, employees and staff equipment. Find out how.

  1. Protect your staff

Employee security training is necessary to ensure everybody understands what to do when under threat. For example, giving goods away rather than being hurt and injured. Your staff should also be able to identify suspicious behaviour from anybody that enters your premises. From here, they can inform security staff and matters will be given to the right team.

  1. Regular checks

Criminals are always looking for new methods of committing their crimes. You must make sure that your security measures are up-to-date at least once a year. We also recommend receiving feedback from your employees for suggestions on how you can better protect your business.

When undertaking these checks, we always recommend asking a professional to take a look. If you are in need of this service, please contact us.
