Protecting Your Business from Crime During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Safeguarding your commercial property throughout the coronavirus.

The coronavirus pandemic continues to dictate news cycles across the world. Fear of a major outbreak has several individuals- including employers and business owners- wondering about the best crime prevention tips for business. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has come up with guidance for businesses and employers to prevent workplace crime. The guidance can even help in preventing the spread of various other illnesses.

Here are some tips that can help you with business crime prevention in COVID-19

Come Up with the Right Plan

With the coronavirus spreading at a breakneck pace, more and more business owners are placing safeguards to protect their business from crime.

They are revamping existing emergency plans and even creating new ones outlining what steps need to be taken if a crime strikes their business.

One of the essential guidelines for businesses with employees working from home is advocating the use of strong passwords. This can help in avoiding cyber-crimes to a considerable extent.

Use of Alarms

Businesses with physical stores and offices located in different parts of the country can use alarms for keeping the security of the organization intact.

While modern businesses already have security cameras and alarms installed in the premises, it would be great to confirm everything is correctly set and functional. Security cameras need to have the feature of being accessed remotely.

Proper Lighting

Replace all the non-functional luminaries while making sure that proper light is present in the dark areas. Motion activation should be a priority when choosing commercial lights.

Enhanced Landscape for Avoiding Thefts and Burglaries

Properly landscaping the area around the office building can help in alleviating thefts and burglaries. Trim the plants and get rid of objects such as large rocks near the workplace. Review the security footage at least once every day to ensure all is in order.
