Security of your business is as important as anything else you do to generate revenue. However, some businesses do not realise the impact of not reviewing their security practices and policies on a regular basis. These mistakes can be avoided by taking relatively simple steps beforehand.
Mistake # 1
Regular Alarm Checks
How often do you test your alarm? Scheduled maintenance checks must be made to ensure your connections are working at optimal speeds. Burglars, while scouting your business can detect if your alarm system is not in working order and take advantage of that.
Mistake # 2
Updating Key-holders information
Keeping your records with key holders information up to date are crucial. In many cases, old staff still could gain access to your business premises through door codes and security pins previously shared. It is recommended that a business must change its security information every quarter.
Mistake # 3
Authorising untrained staff to attend alarm activations
Don’t put your staff at risk by letting them respond to your premises. Alarm Activation response requires training, knowledge, and expertise. There are various issues that you may need to think about before exposing your staff to potentially high-risk situations.
- Are intruders still on the premises while your staff are on the way to alarm activation?
- What level of training and expertise does your staff have while exposed to an alarm response callout?
- Are your staff members aware of the risks whilst entering, a potentially dangerous environment?
Invest in a professional service that will look after your property out of hours. Mobile Patrol Inspections are a money-saving solution that allows security guards to check in on your property regularly.
Mistake # 4
Regular CCTV maintenance Checks
Scheduled maintenance checks must be made on the security cameras to ensure they are in good working condition. Get your security technicians to clean and adjust the cameras, check the housings and cables.
Mistake # 5
Regular External lightning Checks
Keeping your business well-lit at night reduces the risk of criminal activity. Make sure the lightning is checked by your staff every few days to ensure it is working properly.
