Safeguarding your workplace is a paramount responsibility when you’re a business owner. While workplace safety encompasses aspects like electrical precautions, it’s crucial to prioritise the personal well-being of your employees and customers, while also protecting your valuable business assets.
At FirstEye, we specialise in designing and installing highly effective security solutions for businesses in Leeds. With years of experience, we understand that not everyone has the means to afford cutting-edge, expensive security systems. That’s why we offer a range of solutions tailored to fit different budgets.
We also recognise that security needs can significantly differ across various types of businesses. An office-based company, for instance, may not require the same level of protection as a shop with valuable inventory or a factory housing expensive equipment. Regardless of the nature of your business, security is crucial. We work closely with business owners to find the perfect system for their unique requirements.
Developing your business security plan
Many business owners neglect regular security assessments and remain unaware of their level of protection. While adopting an “ignorance is bliss” approach might suffice most of the time, it can prove costly and stressful in the event of a break-in. Starting with an inventory of your existing security systems is an excellent way to begin, and checking the functionality of your alarm is a good starting point. Here are a few key considerations:
• Is your business equipped with an alarm system? If so, when was the last maintenance check?
• Does your business have a reception area? Is it monitored by CCTV?
• Do you handle sensitive information, such as financial records?
• Is your business located in a remote area?
• Does your business have a car park? Is it protected against unauthorised vehicles?
Evaluating the security of your business allows you to identify vulnerable areas that could benefit from additional protection. CCTV can greatly enhance the security of reception areas, while implementing an access control system offers a cost-effective way to manage entry to your premises. Car parks often benefit from the added security provided by barriers, and installing security lighting can help staff feel safer while deterring potential intruders. Lastly, ensuring your security alarm is well-maintained or installing one if you don’t already have it is an unbeatable measure to bolster your business security.
