What’s your risk factor?

Posted by:

High turnover, high stock volumes, high risk?

There are certain elements to a business that add to the risk factor – and to insurance costs. Companies that have high value merchandise, hold large quantities of stock, deal with sensitive data, or have a large number of entry points can all be seen as prime targets, and therefore attract considerable insurance premiums. You may not be able to do anything about your stock or storage commitments, but you can definitely do something about your risk – manned guarding could well be the way to minimise it.

You could just allocate a member of staff to watch over your premises. However, there are risks with that; what do you do when they are ill or away? Can they actually deal with an emergency situation? Have you covered all of the requirements of lone worker legislation? Installing CCTV may seem like a good solution, and it has many benefits, but of course it cannot do anything about a situation; you still need to deal with it and deal with it quickly before it’s too late.

Professional onsite security guarding from a reputable security company solves every single one of these issues; security officers are fully trained and SIA licensed, health and safety trained, screened and vetted to BS7858 standard, CRB checked, and furthermore, provide a significant visible deterrent, and can deal with any scenario there and then. Manned guarding services can sometimes be an insurance requirement; choose a trustworthy security firm to fulfil your requirements, and your risks will significantly decrease.
