While you might have been covered in the past, you might want to upgrade, update, and implement new or better business security measures to ensure that you are protected in the future. Otherwise, you risk endangering your business. Read on for our business security tips.
Cover Your Entire Brick and Mortar with Video Surveillance
Partial video surveillance isn’t enough anymore. You may have portions of your location monitored by surveillance, but if you want to give yourself the best chance of deterring theft and break-ins, a full-scale surveillance strategy is imperative. Ensure that your front and back entrances, as well as your public floors and back rooms are completely covered by a high-quality video surveillance system.
Upgrade Your Alarm System
If you have relied on pull-down grates and deadbolts so far to protect your business, it’s time to invest in a commercial burglar alarm system. Many times thieves will not target your business if they can see that you have security and surveillance in place. Just make sure you also have backup communications installed to ensure that an emergency signal can always get through.
Update and Test Your Fire Alarm System
Protect your entire establishment from destruction by fire with a strong commercial fire alarm system. If you have a system in place already, test it to make sure it’s still working properly. Replace any damaged or defective appliances immediately.
Take Better Care of Your Valuables
Do not leave valuable items on the floor at night. Lock them up in a safe in the back room. During business hours, keep valuable items behind glass and under lock and key. This is important not only to deter regular shoplifting, but to help protect your most valuable items even if you have to shut down the store quickly due to an emergency.
