Can I have CCTV inside the office?
Businesses are permitted to install CCTV inside their properties. However, it is important that there is a legitimate reason to do so. These include;
- employee safety
- preventing employee misconduct
- health and safety procedures responsibilities
- crime prevention
Do I need to tell staff that there is CCTV?
It is a legal obligation to have CCTV signage on display, ensuring everyone in the building is aware that there is surveillance in place. What’s more, employees have the right to request to see business CCTV footage. A business must provide this footage within one month of being asked.
How many CCTV cameras do I need for my business?
The number of CCTV cameras and their positioning will be dictated by the size of the property, its design and the areas where there is some security concern. This is something our team can advise on, creating a tailored CCTV system off the back of their findings.
Is there much upkeep with business CCTV?
Like with any fire or security equipment, ensuring it is always working to the best standard is a priority. This is why we advise that business CCTV systems be vetted at least once a year. This ensures no parts are compromised, all software updates and completed and the CCTV system is serving its purpose.
