What’s your plan for business security?

Business, commercial and industrial security solutions installed in Leeds by FirstEye

Although any, many businesses are facing incredibly challenging times at the moment, business security is still an important issue and if overlooked, can prove incredibly costly and stressful to resolve. If you run your own business you’re likely to be all too aware of your responsibility to ensure workplace safety. Whilst the term ‘workplace safety’ includes things like electrical safety etc., it’s important to make careful consideration for the personal safety of your employees, customers, whilst also ensuring your business assets are protected.

At FirstEye we have many years of experience in working with business of all shapes and sizes in Leeds, providing a wide range of highly effective security solutions. We know that not everyone has the big budgets needed to afford the latest high-tech security kit and with this in mind, we offer flexible solutions to suit all budgets and requirements.

We also understand that the security needs of different businesses can vary significantly as an office-based business, for example, is unlikely to need as much protection as a shop full of expensive stock, or factory used to house valuable equipment. Security is vital important for all businesses – regardless of what they do – and we work closely with business owners to find a system that’s ideally suited to their needs.

Planning your businesses’ security

Unfortunately many business owners fail to think about security on a regular basis and as a result have no idea if they have sufficient protection. A ‘head in the sand’ approach might work the majority of the time, but it can prove very expensive and stressful if the worst happens and your business suffers a break in. Taking an inventory of your existing security systems is a great way to begin and spending a little time checking your alarm is also a good place to start. Here are a few things you could think about:

• Is your business protected by an alarm, and if it is, when was the last time it was serviced?
• Does your business have a reception area? Is it protected by CCTV?
• Do you store sensitive information such as financial records?
• Is your business in a remote area?
• Does your business have a car park and is it protected from unauthorised vehicles?

Thinking about the security of your business is a good way to identify any areas which are vulnerable and would benefit from extra protection. Reception areas, for example, can really benefit from the protection offered by CCTV, whilst an access control system is a cost-effective way to control who has access to your business premises. Car parks often benefit from the enhanced security provided by barriers, whilst security lighting offers a way to help staff feel more secure and deter potential intruders. Last and by no means least, ensuring your security alarm is in good working order, or installing an alarm if you don’t already have one is an unbeatable way to increase the security of your business.
