Support social distancing with a security presence

Support social distancing with a security presence

If your business has been deemed essential by the government during this pandemic, then you’ll currently be facing a whole host of new, unusual but necessary precautions to keep your employees and members of the public safe.

Essential shops include:

  • Supermarkets and other food shops
  • Pharmacies
  • Petrol stations
  • Newsagents
  • Bicycle shops
  • Home and hardware stores
  • Laundrettes and dry cleaners
  • Garages
  • Pet shops
  • Post Offices
  • Banks

In order to comply with social distancing, there’ll be a number of measures you’ll need to take, and that might include ensuring customers stay at least 2 meters apart or perhaps limiting the number of people allowed into your retail shop at one time. It might mean reducing the number of staff, and it might mean increased security both in the shop itself or outside to ensure people are obeying the strict guidelines that social distancing covers.

Investing in additional security that can enforce social distancing will not only protect your employees and customers, but it will also help to hammer home the message to members of the public and in doing so, you’ll be actively contributing to beating Covid-19, by leading by example.

How can Carter Solutions and Services support your business?

We have the availability to support you during this difficult time. Manned guarding and mobile patrols are the most effective level of professional security that we offer, and we can work with you to create a contract that assesses your needs and works well within your budget.

Our door supervisors can restrict the number of people entering your shop, supermarket, garage, petrol station or pharmacy. Our security officers are all highly trained in communicating with members of the public, meaning we can politely and firmly ensure that social distancing measures are adhered to.

For more information on how we can work with you to provide a quality service at your business, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team. We look forward to hearing from you.

Alternatively, if you’re looking to further your career within the security industry, or if you’re currently on furlough or out of work and want to give back by protecting your local community, please check the careers section on our website or email us an up to date copy of your C.V. We are currently recruiting across the country, so we look forward to receiving your application.

We hope you’re all staying safe in this difficult time.
