With crime statistics as high as what they are, property security is a worthwhile investment for you to consider with your business.
A large number of business in South Africa are aware of the crime trends and the influencing factors that drive their decision to improve commercial property security.
Improve your security plan:
Does your business have a secure property? And is it prepared for security attacks? If you want a security boost, we recommend that you do the following:
1. Regulate access
Invest in security guards that control and limit access or alternatively an electronic or biometric access control system. This will help store records of who accesses your business. This also allows for access to be restricted or for sensitive areas to be better controlled.
2. Check building
The last person leaving/ your security guard onsite should do a sweep to check for any suspicious or abnormal activities, parcels or people. It is not uncommon for people to be locked in a premises and then to break out as opposed to breaking in from the outside. This way by the time the alarm triggers, the person had left and not entered.
3. Upgrade windows, doors and locks
Invest in reinforced steel or wood doors. Add high-security, commercial-grade locks to all entrances, exits and internal doors that lead to restricted areas. Put locks on all windows, and lock them when they are not in use.
4. Dispose of all rubbish on the premise no longer needed
This then give the security guards space and clear views of locations on the premises.
5. Prioritise security
Lock up company desktops/laptops at night, or request that employees take them home at the end of the day.
6. Develop a response plan
Have a response plan in place in case of a security breach, and ensure all guards are properly trained and can direct your employees on the protocols.
