It’s inevitable that at this time of year your work premises will be empty at some time. Empty buildings carry many risks, we know that. It’s worth repeating, can’t be understated, you need to know: who’s on your business property – when you’re not at work? The obvious, and most irritating, is the threat of intruders. Those weird creatures who make their living from stealing other peoples’ goods. I could wax lyrical about their lack of conscience, how they sleep at night and the question – what do they dream about? But that’s not what we’re about. We’re about showing you that there are ways of reducing the threat of risk.
Firstly, the risk of burglary, intruder alarms and good quality locks will deter the opportunists. For the ‘professionals’ you need evidence. If they’re determined to get into your property make sure you catch them on CCTV, with a good surveillance system. CCTV systems are far more reasonable than you might think, and can be installed quickly.
Other risks come from the inside. Perhaps a computer server or other machine has to be left on, leading to risk of fire. A professionally fitted fire detection system is an absolute must have! You really should include these in your premises.
As well as fire there can be a risk of flood! Burst pipes are common at this time of year, especially if it freezes again. A monitored CCTV system will alert you to a flood, and save you from the horror of discovering the problem when work resumes. Catching a leak early means you can deal with it and prevents it from causing major damage.
In summary, professionally fitted intruder alarms, fire alarms and CCTV surveillance systems will make a material reduction in the risks to your premises when they’re unoccupied. And could win you a reduction in your insurance premiums!
