Imagine arriving to work to find smashed windows, kicked in doors and various items stolen. Or worse, imaging arriving into work to find your security codes have been hacked and valuable information has been taken. This could be staff details, details about your finances, or details about your clients. This leaves your company exposed and extremely vulnerable. Whilst you may have ‘saved’ money by not investing in a quality security provider, you now have to pay for damages and recovering information. What’s worse, is will you ever be able to make up for the cost to your reputation. Will your staff, clients or customers trust you again? This is a financial implication that many business owners overlook, yet arguably it the most important factor when it comes to security. Prevention is always better than a cure, and this is especially the case when it comes it preventative security measures.

Industrial sites tend to be away from residential areas, and they’re known for having expensive machinery inside often poorly protected buildings. It’s often the case that industrial sites utilise shift working patterns too. This makes it difficult to keep the building secure, as so many people regularly come and go, making it tricky to keep an eye on unauthorised personnel gaining access to restricted areas. This makes it particularly important to assess your security needs and hire an experienced security provider that understands your specific requirements.

Crime happens everywhere. Whilst Carter Solutions and Services Limited focus on commercial security at your place of work, the truth is that crime isn’t exclusive to business premises. For example, our door supervisors know this only too well, as being responsible for the security at licensed gaming venues, as well as nightclubs, gives them an insight into what goes on in the early hours of the morning of a town centre. This often requires our team to step in to diffuse situations, operating within the confines of the law as dictated by SIA licensing standards, before calling the local authorities.
