How Security Services are supporting businesses through the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Since the start of the global COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses across the country have been forced to close, or have only been allowed to open in a limited capacity. Due to the new regulations in place surrounding COVID-19 workplace protocols, additional Security Services have been a requirement for businesses that have been allowed to stay open, as well as business that have been forced to close their premises while the pandemic continues.

 

For businesses that have been lucky enough to remain open in some capacity during the pandemic, the new and ever-changing safety requirements have put a lot of pressure on them as they have to keep up-to-date and compliant with all the regulations in order to keep operating safely. Businesses that can stay open during the pandemic are constantly having to develop, maintain, and update appropriate safety and sanitisation protocols for their employees and customers to remain compliant with the government’s rules. Businesses that have stayed open risk fines or closure if they are found to not be compliant with the required rules, while simple day-to-day operations like enforcing social distancing can place a strain on a business due to operating with limited staff numbers.

In contrast to businesses that have been allowed to stay open, those who have been forced to close their buildings require additional Security Services to help protect premises that have become vulnerable to theft and other criminal activity, due to being left unattended for long periods of time.

 

To relieve the stress on available resources, numerous businesses are turning to private Security Services to help them through these challenging times. There are a number of important roles that Security companies can undertake to keep businesses safe, compliant and open for trade.

Here’s how our Security Services can help support your business through the pandemic.

 

Static Security Officers for maintaining Social Distancing and Health & Safety regulations.

The responsibility for implementing and administering social distancing as well as Health and Safety rules are entirely up to individual businesses to maintain and enforce. It can be very challenging for businesses to expect their already limited staff to do their day-to-day jobs, monitor customers and apply the regulations all at the same time. The safety of staff can also be a concern for many businesses as during the pandemic some stores have seen enraged customers take out their frustrations on the staff who are just trying to do their job.

 

Our professional, fully trained, and SIA Accredited Security Officers can completely eliminate the need to involve staff in the enforcement of Health & Safety protocols, and allows businesses to focus more time and resources on their own priorities, rather than enforcing government regulations. Our on-site Security Officers also add a vital layer of protection where employees, guests or members of the public may potentially be vulnerable. Our visible and uniformed Officers can safely administer the rules in a professional and respectful manner, limiting the risk of an unsafe or dangerous situation.

On-site and Mobile Patrols to secure and protect closed and empty buildings.

Even though some businesses have stayed open during the pandemic, or have since reopened their doors, there are still many businesses and buildings that are closed and remain empty, unmanned, and vulnerable to threats. Owners of these particular premises still need to protect their buildings from potential criminal activity such as vandals, thieves and even squatters who might want to take advantage of these empty sites.

 

Our on-site Security Officers can provide a visible presence 24 hours a day to monitor and secure buildings against suspicious behaviour.
