If you own or act as the landlord for a commercial building, keeping up with security is a must. Not only is it imperative to keep up with security for yourself, but for the business owners in your building as well. While there’s no denying your tenants have their own responsibility when it comes to overall security, you’ll want to do your part as well to keep avoidable legal and safety problems at bay.
PUT CAMERAS TO GOOD USE
There’s a good reason security cameras have persisted as long as they have when other security measures have fallen by the wayside. Go ahead and install a quality security camera system in the building, focusing on all entrances and exits. Just the sight of security cameras could be enough to deter would-be criminals.
LIMIT EXITS AND ENTRANCES
Just as it’s easy to secure a building that only has one entrance or exit, it’s a bit more complicated to secure a building with several different exits and entrances on several different floors. Do what you can to keep ways for criminals to get in and out of the building to a minimum.
DON’T FORGET ABOUT LIGHTING
Criminals aren’t known for their love of the spotlight. Scatter plenty of lights around your commercial building, pairing them with cameras so you can easily see what’s being recorded. Hallways, parking lots and walkways are just a few areas that should be well-lit. Not only is proper lighting good for security, lights can also keep accidents and injuries to a minimum as well.
TEND TO YOUR LANDSCAPING
Don’t make it easy for burglars and other criminals to conceal themselves on your grounds. Ensure all bushes, shrubs and trees are well-trimmed throughout the year. This serves double duty by also making your grounds look that much more visually appealing, which is something your tenants, their employees and their customers are sure to appreciate just as much as you do.
