What are some aspects of commercial building security in Australia? If you are a security director of a large building or have an office there, then you sure have this question in your mind too. The office employees and other guests who visit your commercial property must feel safe. A security threat can arrive out of nowhere, and you should be ready to deal with such situations.
There was a significant improvement in the commercial security space after the unfortunate events of 9/11 in New York City. For any commercial building or property, the security strategy should be proactive and not just reactive. Let’s look at some of the aspects to keep in mind for your commercial building security.
Identifying the Risks:
The first thing you need to do is identify the possible risks. In the ever-changing world, you ought to know what you are up against and how to deal with it.
Once you’ve identified the potential risks, you can draw a comprehensive plan to tackle them.
It is necessary to identify any vulnerable spots in and around your commercial building or property. A comprehensive risk analysis will help you mitigate any threats. Securing the perimeter, both inside and outside your commercial building acts as the first line of defence.
To enhance the security of your commercial building, consider lighting dark areas like parking, stairwells, and hallways. Install motion-activated and internal lights in your commercial building to make it look occupied even when no one is on the premises. Trimming the trees which are outside your commercial building will also restrict any unwanted activities.
Access Control System:
Having an access control system in place can deter any intruder movement in the commercial building. Furthermore, the electronic access control system helps you monitor and control access to your commercial building. The access control system allows access based on different levels to each individual based on specific requirements. For instance, visitors may have access only to public areas.
A Closed-Circuit TV System (CCTV) is an effective tool to monitor the movements both inside and outside the commercial property. You need to install the CCTV cameras strategically. The presence of a camera serves as a visible deterrence to any anti-social element.
