From having to work out what on earth ‘Furloughing’ means to managing workforces remotely, business owners are adapting to these challenging times. While the world of work is now situated in our front rooms, it is important that physical work premises are still being secured and protected against the risks of fires and break-ins.
Below, we share a few tips, detailing some tricks and tactics on how to keep your business premises safe during lockdown.
Security tips:With the majority of commercial properties expected to be empty for the foreseeable future, limiting security risks and breeches should be a priority for all. Here is how you can reduce the likelihood of a beak-in at your workplace.
Windows and doors
When locking up the office, make sure all windows and doors are securely locked. This will ensure that if a burglar were to try and gain entry, they would face a huge amount of difficulty doing so. It’s also an idea to ensure you have all keys and fobs within your possession, making sure you have control over who enters the property and when.
Connect CCTV to your smartphone
If you have a smart CCTV system fitted at work then syncing the footage to your smartphone is highly advised, enabling you to keep track of anyone that enters or attempts to enter the property during lockdown.
