Keeping Your Commercial Property Safe & Secure

Crooks, criminals, plotting burglars, and masked robbers – protect your business from the likes of these.

No matter what type of business you own, if you have a physical location, you could be targeted by burglars. As some thieves target specific businesses full of high-tech devices or coveted materials, securing your business’ building is imperative!

Safeguarding the premises around your company and implementing the necessary safety measures keeps your property safe from those things that go ‘bump’ in the night!

Get a visual – If it’s within your budget, consider using cameras to monitor entrances, exits, and money-handling areas. Monitoring parking areas is typically a wise investment. This will make getting images of the thieves easier for the police.

Post signage – If you install surveillance equipment, make sure that the public knows. Burglars will be less likely to enter your premises if they know that they’re being watched.

Greet customers – Make eye contact with visitors as they enter your establishment. Simple recognition may hinder someone from trying to rob your business.

Maintain good lighting – Make sure your business is well lit inside and out. A well-lit establishment can increase visibility and minimize hiding places.

Store minimum cash – Establish and maintain a schedule for going to the bank, whether it’s every day or every few days. Be consistent as to how often you go, but always switch up the route and time of day. Keeping cash to a minimum will not only deter robberies, but it will also help minimize a loss.

Stay up to date – Maintain accurate records of what is in your building. In the event of a robbery, up-to-records can help you determine what’s missing so that you can file claims more efficiently.

Use your locks and alarm systems – Make sure all employees know how to enable the alarm system, switching it on every day before closing down the building. Be sure that locking doors is a habit for all employees – including cleaning personnel.

Buy business insurance – This coverage picks your business up from suffering burglaries, minimizing the financial impact that your business undergoes after a theft.
