Industrial areas and warehouses are especially susceptible to suffering from losses. These losses are not limited to theft and burglaries but include damages from fires, arson, and floods. Damage from fire and flooding costs companies thousands every year, especially when they have not put any special measures to lower the risk.
This is where having a professional security service becomes advantageous. In addition, industrial buildings warehouses are often empty or have areas that people do not visit. This can cause a level of vulnerability regarding theft, burglary, vandalism, arson, industrial sabotage, and natural disasters.
How can security help?
Security guards are fully SIA qualified and trained to conduct professional and detailed risk assessments. Risk assessments are crucial in identifying various vulnerabilities, ranging from low–lit areas with limited visibility to the obstruction of fire exits.
Security guards are skilled in creating red routes where they patrol certain areas frequently to ensure there are signs of criminality or damage (leaking pipes, emerging smoke, etc.).
What are the advantages of having security guards?
Although there are many forms of security services, ranging from CCTV monitoring and alarm response, there is little that can compare to having professional, and SIA qualified security guards.
