3 deterrents - protecting your business

Three deterrents to keep your business safe

June 25, 2019

There are many potential threats that businesses face, but lack of security, problems with theft, robbery and safety at work is the most troubling, if not the most prominent. As a business owner, you will never stop thinking about work… but what if we could tell you that there can be peace of mind when it comes to keeping your business safe? It’s impossible to predict when the safety and security of your business or employees might come under threat, so below we have highlighted some deterrents which can help to keep your business safe:

Mobile Security Patrols

Our Mobile Security Patrols are perfect for putting your mind at ease, even when you’re not at work. With the use of branded vehicles our SIA (Security Industry Approved) Guards can watch over your premises before and after hours, scaring away any unwanted visitors. Our guards go above and beyond whilst servicing your needs, from alerting the authorities to turning off lights and setting alarms. Unlike many firms, you won’t have to fulfil a fixed contract, just use us as and when suits you!

Security Warning Boards

When we patrol a site, warning boards are placed around it. This way visitors will know that a patrol car or guard could arrive at any given time, in turn acting as a visual deterrent to any potential intruders. These boards provide a security solution that is affordable and reassures customers, visitors and employees that they are safe.


Aside from the obvious advantage of being able to monitor your premises at all time, CCTV is an effective deterrent for criminal activity. The sight of a CCTV camera itself is enough to deter vandals, especially with how far they have come in recent years with features such as HD (high definition) surveillance, night-vision and motion detection, you can even keep track via an app now! You might not think it, but CCTV is actually very easy to maintain and require little repairs. This is a great option to keep log of those employees who are working vulnerable hours such as night-time or over the weekend helping you to identify any unusual activity.

Each site poses its own unique problems, if you’re worried about a lack in security, or just want peace of mind when you’re away from the premises, at Foremost Security we can offer a free security review and risk assessment for your premises. By letting us review your security we can suggest the best deterrent options for your business.
