safeguarding image with lock

Whilst all businesses aim to safeguard their business thoroughly, unforeseen incidents can still happen. It is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to securing your facility. Within all, there will be a whole host of things which require protection. Think of all the private records, legal documents, data, money, and people within your enterprise. Are you doing your best to protect each one? By taking the right precautions, you will be able to prevent any possible threats, such as burglary, theft, vandalism, and fraud. Such incidents can leave you and your staff feeling vulnerable, as well as causing damage to your organisation. However, if you do fall victim to such detriments, MSL security solutions ensure your company can be back up and running, as soon as possible.

Here are six practical tips, along with how we can specifically help, to protect your people and assets:

  1. Access control

A practical, reliable, and efficiently installed access control system should always feature in your management strategy. It not only prevents risks such as theft and vandalism, but it also helps you meet your duty of care. For example, towards employees and anyone else authorised on your premises.

Whatever service you require, our expertly trained personnel can fit and/or maintain your access control system. From installing door readers at entry points to fingerprint recognition software, our bespoke solutions are specifically tailored to your business’ needs. We gather in-depth understanding of your situation, risk, and requirements, before fitting or checking such a system.

The following types of authorisation solutions can be employed:

Whilst we recognise sometimes unpredictable things can occur, in the event of, for instance vandalism, there are ways in which we can help. For example, if you need graffiti removed from your walls, our Commercial Cleaning service can deliver exactly this. We personalise our program to suit your unique requirements. Our skilled team will ensure your space is thoroughly cleaned, which in turn can also boost your workforce productivity.

  1. CCTV

Having surveillance across your facility will protect you and your employees, cut costs, and provide crucial evidence if ever required in court. The benefits of installing CCTV include:

How MSL can help…

Based on a detailed description and assessment of your company needs, we can design, install, and maintain a bespoke, digital CCTV protection system. Our state-of-the-art cameras can pan, tilt, and zoom. In addition to this, they even have a facial recognition function. The surveillance system can be connected to many devices, from desktop computers to smartphones and tablets. This makes the way you view and store your CCTV activity extremely flexible.

We also offer extra services within our surveillance program for maximised security. For instance, it can be paired with ANPR (licence plate recognition) software, to record vehicles within camera radius. Alternatively, a PA voiceover can also be installed. This enables you to set up a boisterous automatic warning if intruders were to gain access to your premises. As well as these extras, we can also monitor your CCTV feed after hours, by dialling into your cameras via Wi-Fi. This means you can return home from work with peace of mind.

  1. Monitoring

Whilst having CCTV and other security systems fitted is a good starting point, they also need to be supplemented by 24/7 monitoring, for increased business protection. Round the clock watching and listening adds a vital touch to your security system. This can be done by installing security lights, high fences or even an on-site guard to supervise your grounds.

How MSL can help…

Our fully qualified team will conduct a full assessment of your facility and determine the best security options for you. We can provide a handful of monitoring services, as well as a range of bespoke solutions specifically suited to your business. Whilst we have many supervision solutions, here are a few examples of things we can monitor:

For example, in a care home, we can protect elderly clients by employing a GPS-tracking personal alarm system. This can be prompted manually or automatically in the event of a fall. Or if someone attempts to break into your premises, we can install alarms which when triggered, alert police or fire services.

  1. LED security lighting

There are many different lighting options available for your business. However, LED security lighting in particular is a fantastic and efficient option. Not only is it environmentally friendly, but it can also aid in reducing your energy consumption. Some of its other benefits include the following:

Our expert design team can customise a lighting plan for your company, as well as advise you upon what you need and where.

  1. Road and perimeter automation systems

Once you have indoor areas secured, thought needs to be given to outer boundaries, for deterring and delaying intruders entering from outside.

How MSL can help…

We can lower your risk of intrusion with our progressive security and traffic-management solutions. Such measures will help to protect your premises and physical assets, as well as your employees and any authorised visitors.

For example, although dependent on the size of your property, you may have the capacity to include perimeter blocks. This adds an additional level of security to your facility which can be applied in various forms. These include electronic gates, automated road-blockers, turnstile gates and rising bollards.

  1. Reactive maintenance

Despite all security measures, unforeseen circumstances can occur, whether it is a break-in or vandalism. The important thing is to react accordingly in the aftermath of an unfortunate event. Should your business be targeted, it is important you have instant access, to a team of professionals who can be with you immediately to resolve any issues.

How MSL can help…

We have a 24/7 helpline, dedicated helpdesk co-ordinator, skilled tradesmen, and a 360-degree online reporting system. It is in this way; we can ensure that problems are resolved quickly and efficiently.
