Keeping Your Business Safe and Protected During COVID-19

We know that the coronavirus outbreak is currently having a negative impact on businesses throughout the country. With the UK Government having implemented measures to reduce the spread of the virus, non-essential businesses are now closed and the public are being urged to adhere to strict regulations. In this article we will explain how you can keep your business safe and protected during the COVID-19 outbreak.

If your business is now closed for the unforeseeable future, we recognise the unfortunate impact this may have on your business’s revenue. To further protect your finances and property, it’s important that you have taken steps to safeguard your business premises. One of the most important ways you can do this is by making sure you have adequate alarm, CCTV and security lighting systems in place. This can help deter criminals from committing a crime, provide evidence should a crime occur, and alert suitable personnel of any suspicious activity as soon as detected.

These are certainly extraordinary times and orders from the government came rather suddenly. With this in mind, it would be no surprise if you weren’t completely prepared for the situation. If you haven’t done so already, you should review your procedures including who can access your premises and how. We recommend maintaining constant communication with your employees to keep them informed of the situation. You should also look to empty your premises of any important valuables. Personal data and expensive equipment, for instance, should be moved to a secured location. Consider whether you have taken the appropriate steps to limit other hazards such as fire and electrical dangers. Keep valuables out of sight from external view and provide clear signage stating that the site is closed and secured.
