No environment can be considered completely safe from security risks. However, it is vital for business leaders is to ensure a safe and secure working environment for their employees, whether that is an office, warehouse, factory or other facility. One of the fundamental elements of the company’s security policy must be a commitment to provide such a secure environment.
Supporting the policy commitment, managers will need to be furnished with robust procedures, bespoke to the company, which will address the key identified risks and set standards for the baseline control elements of physical security, including (but not exclusively) CCTV, access control, security alarm and fire systems, and manned guarding.
Having set the standard it is essential, and in some operating environments, obligatory, to audit the business’s performance in implementing physical security measures. This security audit system must be consistent and systematic across the business, taking into account the changing face of the business and it’s operating environment. We can bring to the table a wealth of experience in assessing and improving physical security.
