Your company’s security should be your first priority. A thief, an irate customer, or even a disgruntled employee can all pose a threat, so keeping your building, staff, and any customers or visitors secure is critical to the profitability of your business and the morale of your employees.
One of the best investments you can make for your company is security guards. Here are some excellent methods to use a security team to improve the security of your small business.
Control Site Access
It is not necessary for everyone to be able to travel everywhere. You don’t want lots of duplicate keys circulating. As a result, try to keep track of who requires specific keys or keycards for specific access points. If you use electronic access, attempt to keep the number of people who have access codes to a minimum. The number of seats available in some digital systems is limited. Keeping track of who has access to what and who truly requires it is a good idea in general. If you have many security guards, ensure the senior guard keeps track of who has access to what.
Make routine inspections of the building
Routine security checks on your building can be extremely beneficial to your company’s security. Before and after work are two of the most crucial times to schedule these checkups. This gives your security guards practical experience determining what is and isn’t typical. It also provides the advantage of keeping an eye on any necessary construction repairs that could otherwise go unnoticed. This is also a wonderful training activity for security officers who are new or inexperienced.
Upgrade Doors, Windows, and Locks
Few things will help you more than a well-locked entryway, aside from a security guard. If you’ve recently inherited an older building, recently opened a new brick and mortar location, or haven’t looked into security upgrades in a while, now is a great time to upgrade your doors and windows with top-of-the-line locks, security bars, and other security features to deter would-be intruders. If something does go wrong, a security guard will react quickly and know what to do.
