Research suggests that 41% of business owners in Ireland worry about the security of their business whilst on holidays. Summer time can be a particular concern for many Irish businesses when it comes to break-ins. The joy of holidays brings lots of excitement and on the other hand some stress about having everything run smoothly back at the office.
Our advice on keeping your business premises secure after work:
- Train your Staff
Ensure every staff member has been made aware of security procedures and the building is fully secured on exit and no windows have been left open.
- Have your alarm monitored by a reliable source
An alarm system is only as good as the response it generates. A monitored alarm allows for the nominated Key holder and the authorities to be informed if the alarm is triggered.
- Alarm Response Service
Having a professional Alarm Response Service is the ultimate solution to your concerns. No matter where you are in the world, you will never have to be concerned about the security of your premises after hours. Professional Alarm Companies are experienced to deal with any situation at hand, be it intruder or fire.
- Security Patrols
Having a security company carrying out a patrol or lock up service also reduces the strain on you as they make sure the building is locked and secure at the end of the working day. Having a mobile patrol in the middle of the night can also discourage potential intruders.
Businesses need to be vigilant in security. There is always a risk of opportunistic criminals taking advantage of long weekends and some businesses being closed during summer holidays. A little extra vigilance will help you keep your property and belongings safer while you’re gone.
