Crime Prevention Tips for Businesses During the COVID-19 Outbreak

Safeguarding Your Business During a Pandemic

 You may have closed up your business for a period of a few weeks. You may just be reopening ' or are not even close to. As a small business, there may be many worries on your mind but protecting your business's location shouldn't be one of them. Ensure that you are doing all you can to safeguard your business's building during this time. Here are some tips to get you started. Alarms
  • Confirm that the alarm is in good working order and set
  • Check that the alarm company has accurate and up-to-date contact information
 Security cameras
  • Ensure that the cameras are located in the right spot and are capturing areas of concern
  • If possible, consider if the cameras can be motion-activated and accessed remotely so that you can check up on the property without needing to be there
 Lighting
  • Replace burnt out or dim bulbs
  • Address dark areas that allow potential thieves to hide
  • Consider motion-activated floodlights outside of the property to catch a criminal in their tracks
 Business closed signs
  • Think about if you want to indicate that the business is closed. If you do, consider adding a €œno cash kept on premise € sign. If you have surveillance, add €œ24-hour surveillance € to warn people that they are being watched.
 Landscaping
  • Make sure that plants are trimmed and do not provide areas for thieves to conceal themselves
  • Remove objects like rocks and loose bricks from near the building that could be used to break windows
 Employees
  • Will someone from your team be designated to check on the business? If so, do they have all the pertinent contact information?
  • If you believe you will be closed for a significant period of time, consider hiring private security
 With smart, simple changes, you can protect your business during this period of uncertainty. For a  commercial insurance  policy to suit your business and property at the right price,  contact  the team at Humble & Davenport Insurance today.
