Many businesses are having to shut their doors on public access areas and high street locations during the COVID-19 lockdown and we know that this can add to a growing list of worries, particularly about how you can ensure your business premises are secured during any extended shut down or closure period. Under normal circumstances, we would recommend undertaking a security assessment with your security provider to ensure all aspects are covered and to identify any particular security risks that need to be addressed.

At STANLEY Security, our purpose is to help keep our customers, their facilities and their employees safe.
