Concierge Duties

The capital city of London has a large number of skyscraper buildings, but are they using soft FM techniques? The use of soft facilities management methods are often underestimated, but we are here to tell you efficient FM is vital for a business to thrive.
Did you know there are three types of burglaries that commercial buildings are at risk of? You need to be aware of these to ensure your property, its contents and employees are safe. Burglary by definition is the ‘Illegal entry of a building with intent to commit a crime, especially theft.’ With break-ins happening on average every 40 seconds it is important your building is properly protected to minimise the risk of this happening.
If you want to have a safe and secure property you will need to regularly conduct security audits to ensure your processes are effective. Your security needs will continually change and grow, therefore maintenance and checks are essential. Your audit does not need to be complicated, therefore we have created this example of the types of questions you should ask yourself.
For some businesses, security is important but optional, but for others, it is simply a necessity. Often, pro-activeness with a security plan only occurs once a break-in has occurred, but any responsible corporate business will have appropriate security processes in place to prevent criminals in the first place. Factors such as the nature of the business, property location or ability to be targeted by criminals should be acknowledged and used to create and implement an effective security strategy.
Security is essential for your business, a safe environment is of utmost importance and should be a priority in your business management. However, a concierge can provide security as well as many other benefits, making them the ideal security guard for your property. In this post, we discuss why your company NEEDS to have a concierge on site.
All businesses need security measures in place to keep employees, properties and goods safe and secure. Proper security will prevent and deter anyone from entering without permission, this could save the company time and money having to fix or replace anything. Security will always be something for businesses to invest in as there will always be threats and risks to a company. Windows & Doors - Make it good practice for all windows and doors to be checked they are locked before leaving and closing the workplace. In the morning, also check they are still locked. If they are not then you know someone may have entered the premises illegally. A combination door lock is ideal as you can only access if you know the passcode which should be kept confidential to employees only. Security System - An alarm that contacts the police and a single individual of the company if triggered are useful so that the extent of the break-in may be reduced or the burglar be caught. CCTV is another good security system to have as you are able to gather evidence and a better sense of safety for employees. Lighting - Appropriate lighting both indoors and outdoors can act as a deterrent to break-ins as it will appear that there are still people on premises. Lighting will also help staff feel safer in the environment, especially when arriving early or leaving late. Passwords - All computers and technology being password protected may deter people from stealing the items as they cannot be entered. Security cables will also make it harder for items to be removed, another deterrent. The security of these items does not only physically protect them, but protect all their contents which could be crucial to business productivity. Security education - Educating employees and visitors of your security measures in the workplace can maintain a safe environment. Every company will have different policies in place, therefore, it isn't a ‘one size fits all’ approach. All new employees must be taught the specific guidelines and current employees must be updated as and when the policy is updated. Regular teaching of the security measures will also keep them fresh in staff’s minds. Outside - Other parts of the workplace such as the car park and lobby must have security measures in place to keep them safe and secure as they are still technically a part of the workplace. The workplace has an obligation to provide a safe working environment, therefore efficient security is necessary.
