What are security arrangements like at your company? Do you have lots of valuable stock to protect and a site that is particularly vulnerable to break-ins? Theft is extremely damaging to any business. OK, you have insurance, but with each break in those premiums keep going up and there is the disruption as well. Your customers are waiting for orders. Orders you can’t fulfill because the goods have been stolen.
People assume that good security has to be expensive, but that is simply not the case. It has to be well-planned and executed. There are often simple changes that can be made to tighten things up and prevent further robberies. Take your industrial fencing. Is it up to the job? Really? How many times have thieves cut straight through it or just climbed over the top? By investing just a little more in secure metal fencing you make your whole site far more secure.
Industrial fencing comes with many different added security options and can be adapted to fit and protect any kind of environment. Simple anti-climb measures make an enormous difference for starters. Metal fencing isn’t as cheap as some other options, but the additional outlay isn’t that much more and will soon start paying dividends. Just think, that investment will prevent robberies, which in turn means you can better meet the needs of your customers and over time your insurance premiums will fall. All from one simple security measure.
Improved fencing is a great starting point, but don’t just upgrade it in isolation. Make it part of a more holistic approach to security generally. Raise staff awareness about being vigilant and not giving thieves the chance to strike. If you are in the business park, work with the other tenants to make sure security is tight and foolproof across the whole site, not just with your company.
