Do you need to boost your company's security?

Whether you conduct your business in an office, in a retail establishment, food services or other industry, you have many things that require your attention. In addition to meeting the needs of your employees, creditors and customers, you may be feeling the growing need to improve your security.

Even if the neighborhood where you work seems comfortable and attractive, that does not mean it will stay that way. As a business owner, you are responsible for keeping your customers and clients safe. This is not always easy, but there are steps you can take to reduce the risk your visitors may take when they come to your place of business.

Is your business well protected?

How long has it been since you walked around your property with a critical eye? Ideally, this is something you do on a regular basis with a goal of identifying any hazards that may place others at risk. This can include lights that need replaced in stairwells or the need for closed-circuit TV cameras in secluded areas. Not only will this go far in preventing accidents, but it may deter crime. When installing CCTV cameras, keep the following in mind:

  • They should be high enough to prevent tampering.
  • They should be discreet so as not to be obvious to someone who has bad intentions.
  • You will want to place them in areas that may be high risk of incidents.
  • Hiring a remote monitoring service is often more effective than monitoring the cameras in-house.
  • Routine maintenance is essential to keeping cameras functioning when you need them.

To boost the security of your property, consider the reliability of your security company. Not all security details have the training, licensing and experience appropriate for your business. Additionally, you may want to expand coverage if you do not have your building secured 24/7. Part of your security detail may be checking the IDs of everyone who enters your building. If this is not already a policy in your company, it may be time to enforce it.

If you feel you've done all you can to provide a safe, secure place where your clients and visitors can do business, you may be shocked when you learn that someone claims to have suffered and injury or to have been the victim of a crime on your property. If that person intends to file a lawsuit against your business, you have good reason for concern. It is wise to reach out for advice from a skilled Louisiana attorney who can recognize the flaws in such a claim.
