Let the expert team at Brisull put together a complete manned and electronic security plan that will safeguard your property and tenants.
Security is an all-encompassing term for the steps a building owner or landlord takes to protect tenants, visitors and property in a given structure or facility. A facilities management company can help you keep everyone on your premises safe using industry best practices and vigilant, ongoing attention to prevention and your needs.
Security services can come in many different forms; your facility manager can create a custom plan that is tailored to your needs and makes it easy for you to safeguard the facilities and buildings you own or are responsible for. While each structure and brand is unique, security services encompass both of the following points and components:
This component includes locks and secure doors, along with manned security posts and checkpoints. From a security guard that controls access to your building to roving teams that make sure all is well, even at night, physical security is a powerful preventative. It also works as a deterrent; upon seeing live security guards and physical measures in place, a criminal often opts for an easier, less protected target.
The alarm systems you use, the protective equipment that your building is equipped with and even the electronic barriers that protect your most valuable assets are all parts of electronic security, designed to keep specific items or specific types of assets safe. CCTV and other camera systems are included as part of electronic security in most cases.
Why is Security so important?
Security prevents harm from coming to your employees, customers and guests; it also safeguards your private, proprietary equipment and systems and acts as a powerful deterrent against crime.
Benefits of Manned Security:
Security officers provide a proven, effective visual deterrent to would be criminals. While CCTV and other security products, can be successful in reducing crime, a fully uniformed physical presence could deter thieves and vandals where a camera may not. Trained and experienced, a security officer can quickly identify potential threats, efficiently respond to emergency incidents such as fire or flood, and protect your people and assets.
In addition to providing your employees and customers with peace of mind and enhanced safety, an onsite security officer can handle any or all of the following tasks:
- Reception duties.
- Gate control.
- Alarm system monitoring.
- Bag searches.
- First Aid.
- Liaison with emergency services in the event of an incident.
Benefits of Electronic Security
Guards are powerful deterrents and irreplaceable, but they can’t be everywhere, at every moment. Electronic security measures are a powerful tool in the fight against crime – provided you take proactive steps to set these important barriers up in the first place. Faulty security systems can be an opportunity for burglars to break-in and steal expensive office equipment, stock and important files and records.
Before it happens to you, regular preventative measures and maintenance of business security alarm systems and equipment should be conducted to ensure your valuables and people are well protected.
Regular service and maintenance of your security alarm system is essential to ensure that it is capable of detecting unwanted entry to your premises. Poorly maintained equipment can cause false alarms which are annoying and costly. Your BBM facilities manager can maintain these critical systems for you and ensure they are operational and ready when you need them most.
Consequences of Being Unprepared
More significant consequences can arise from lack of maintenance if your security system fails to detect unwanted intrusions or someone intent on doing harm enters your building. Loss of data, equipment or inventory is common, while employee and customers could be harmed if a criminal is admitted to the building unchecked. Vandalism is common, as is theft of high ticket items and assets.
Don’t be unprepared – your facilities management company can provide you with comprehensive preventative maintenance that not only protects your assets but ensures the following as well:
- Saves money over the life of your security systems
- Minimises the risk that your Insurance Cover might be compromised
- Minimises the risk that your Quality Accreditation might be compromised
- Minimises the risk to your Business Continuity
Security maintenance helps prolong the life of your unit, gaining it’s maximum potential, rather than paying for expensive repairs or even replacement.
How does Preventative Security work?
- BBM begins by undertaking an assessment of requirements and threats to the property and staff.
- In conjunction with management, we work out the requirements and coverage required to safely service the property. We then work out a schedule of manning and the price required to be the most effective and commercial for the client.
BBM works out what systems and equipment are on site and overlay our maintenance plan with the manufacturers recommendations and requirements from the client. We then ensure all the functions of the system and connecting services are included in our testing
Once the scope is set we can roll out the ongoing maintenance plan and ensure all the required maintenance and documents are produced for the outcomes required.
