Motion sensor lights
If you haven’t taken advantage of motion sensor lights this winter, consider them for spring as an all year round safety precaution. Interior and exterior lights can prevent an intruder from concealing his illegal activities and motion sensor lights in particular are an inexpensive way to deter crime at your business.

Keeping spaces visible
Alongside strong additional lighting inside and outside your work place, it’s important to keep any views into building clear and in view at all times. Robbers don’t want to be seen and they are less likely to target your business if a passer-by can see what’s going on.

Spring Cleaning
Take advantage of the new season to de-clutter the office and remove any electrical hazards in particular that may be left over from winter. Broken equipment and cords pose a dangerous hazard to staff so have them organised and/or removed.
