Three top tips to secure your industrial site.

Three top tips to secure your industrial site.

CCTV, with thermal imagery technology

The first step that many industrial site managers implement when it comes to security measures is CCTV. Whilst CCTV can act as a great deterrent, they do have a few faults that affect their reliability. Yes, they can record crime happening in real-time, and if it’s being monitored, security officers can be deployed quickly to the scene. However, they can be subjected to vandalism, they need to be continually monitored and there may be many blind spots where trespassers can slip by unseen.

If you’re keen to install a CCTV monitoring system, we can advise you on how to get the very best out of your investment. We can advise on the best technology available and do a thorough inspection and risk assessment of your industrial site. We can also supply trained SIA licensed security guards to monitor your CCTV system, and act quickly and efficiently should the CCTV pick up any suspicious behaviour.

Signage of your contracted security company

What’s the point of investing in mobile patrols and manned guarding if you aren’t willing to advertise it to the general public? Clear and cleverly placed signage along your perimeters and on the outside of your buildings will alert everyone to the fact you’ve invested in security personnel. This acts as a brilliant deterrent, especially if people research the security company and see what an excellent reputation they have – such as us!

We’ve worked hard to build a respected reputation, showing our security guards as highly effective, and professional individuals. Having a reputation like that should further deter potential criminals.

Mobile patrols or manned guarding

Finally, there’s mobile patrols and manned guarding. Manned guarding is a highly effective way of eliminating criminal activity at your industrial estate, making it one of the most proactive security measures that you can take against crime. It is a security service that involves placing security guards at your premises, usually out of hours (but sometimes when staff are still present).

The manned guarding security service that Carter Security Solutions offers is much more than a security patrol of your business premises. Our security guards are all trained to Security Industry Authority (SIA) standards and are fitted with body cameras for audible and CCTV footage, ensuring you have a professional security officer managing your property at all times.

For more information on how we can support your business with our security services, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team.

Alternatively, if you’re looking to further your career within the security industry, please check the careers section on our website or email us an up to date copy of your C.V. We never subcontract security guards, choosing instead to invest in training and we work hard to support our staff. We look forward to meeting you.
