As summer is finally arriving, many businesses will use a lighter schedule. Employees are given some much needed vacation time and often working hours are shortened. ISSM is available to provide top notch security at all times – including your business’s downtime. There are however, some things that you can do to ensure safety when there are less staff and shorter working hours.
- Know your own space
Evaluate your premises for faults and areas that need fixing. It is a good idea to schedule a monthly or yearly evaluation – depending on the size and dynamics of your business site.Criminals may have identified flaws and could be waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike, such as during a holiday or weekend. So, be thorough in your checks and look at every possibility.
- Ensure Security Systems are operational
If your surveillance system is monitored remote, ensure that all technical connections, including wifi or CCTV are fully operational. Maintain good visibility, make sure there are no objects or shadows obstructing the cameras.Before any significant leave, test all alarm systems and always make sure that windows and doors are locked.
- Keep security staff informed
Those monitoring remote, should always know when the site will be vacant. Key holders must communicate with site monitors before accessing the site at unusual times.Make sure contact information for senior employees and key holders is accurate. Delayed, or lacks communication could be very dangerous in the event of an incident.
