Why it’s Important to Maintain Your Security Equipment
Here at Bollard Security, security is the name of our game, and we know that a well maintained security system is equally as important as a brand new set of security bollards for protecting your premises.
Security bollards, CCTV and access equipment are far more likely to last longer when they’re well-maintained – plus, you can rely on them to remain effective over a prolonged period of time. That enables your business to save a lot of money in the long run by significantly reducing the need for replacements, as well reducing the likelihood of accidents, injuries, thefts and so on occurring within your premises.
The top risks associated with not maintaining your security equipment
As we’ve touched on above, there’s a range of different factors that can become problematic in the future. For one, faulty security equipment can leave your premises exposed to a variety of security threats like trespassing, arson, theft and in rare instances, terrorism. What’s more, compromised security equipment can lead to potential accidents which could result in serious injury. For example, if one of your CCTV cameras was to fall onto a pedestrian, injuring them in the process, then your company could be liable for a severe compensation pay out.
Benefits of a well maintained security system
A well maintained security system can afford your business a range of different benefits. Here are a few of the main ones.
Safety – as we’ve touched on above, physical security solutions such as security gates, barriers and bollards are highly effective at preventing a wide range of crimes in general. This is mainly because they provide access control, which is a benefit that other security systems like CCTV can’t provide.
Peace of mind for employees – let’s be honest, your employees are far more likely to produce their best work if they feel they’re in a safe environment. It’s always reassuring for your staff to know that the building they work in is secure from potential threats posed by criminals. This is particularly true if any of the areas around your premises have seen a recent spike in crime. Security bollards and barriers can be hugely reassuring to employees and can improve the overall morale within your workplace.
Improve your businesses image – security features and access control equipment can also help to improve your image with both clients who are visiting the premises, and the general public. By implementing site security features like security bollards, barriers or gates, you can easily create a reception point for visitors to your premises, and demonstrate that their safety is something you take very seriously. Plus, it provides your business with an added layer of professional aesthetic.
