Whatever the type of business you run, security is always an issue and in these troubling times facing us all, keeping your business premises safe and secure is paramount. Of course, there are different levels to security, depending on the nature of the business, and with that in mind, here are a few ways that you can improve the security for your business.
- Video Surveillance – This is one of the most effective ways to beef up your business security and for what is costs, setting up a few CCTV cameras is a great deterrent. Many retail outlets use video surveillance to deter shoplifting, while the footage is also useful when there are change discrepancies. CCTV is also useful for monitoring perimeters and there are many online stores that sell CCTV equipment and your local TV engineer can easily install and hook up the cameras. Ideal locations include along shopping aisles, covering work areas and, of course, the entrance. Video footage can be very useful when employee conflicts occur, or in the event of an accident; with a self-delete function, you always have footage.
- Manned Security – The number 1 security company (called ราคาบริษัทรักษาความปลอดภัย in Thai) in Thailand offers a range of manned security services and there will be one that is ideal for your business. Having professional security guards in attendance sends out the right message and demonstrates a high level of customer care, which doesn’t go unnoticed. We see these people at shopping malls, sports arenas and many public places and security personnel are trained to work in a range of environments and possess excellent communication skills. A good security guard can complement a business by providing help when required and acting more like a receptionist than a guard.
- Burglar Alarms – If you hold valuable stock and expensive equipment, you will need a specialised infrared beam alarm system that sends beams across many angles and if broken, the alarm is set off. The system can be zoned off to allow work to continue and there are too many features to mention; Google ‘security alarm systems near me’ and that brings up a list of security equipment suppliers and you can take it from there.
Regardless of the business, every organisation must have adequate security for several reasons and more and more business owners are turning to professional security personnel, which projects the right image and is not as costly as you might think.
