So, how can you protect your business premises from the cold weather this winter?

Your business may close at some point during the winter months, so it is important to secure any valuable equipment or devices at a secure off-site location. Alternatively, you can secure data storage devices in a locked safe. Any cash should be banked before closure!
Burglar alarms, CCTV, flood lights and fire alarms should be checked before close of business. These security measures are crucial in protecting your business from intruders. We advise you to check paperwork thoroughly and ensure any advisories from recent inspections are actioned before closure.
Cold weather can heavily affect your automatic door closers. So, if your business is remaining open and these doors are in use everyday, we would advise you to book a service, to avoid the oil in your automatic doors congealing.
Dark nights have arrived, and with Christmas just around the corner it is likely you may have staff working alone, or leaving after dusk. It is vital their safety is taken into account. Panic alarms, security lighting and door entry systems, are all simple precautions that can be taken to make staff feel at ease.
