Lockdown has been a worrying and uneasy time for businesses across South Wales, with many having to furlough staff and close their doors for which could be the final time.
But with the Welsh Government slowly relaxing lockdown rules, many businesses across South Wales will see this as an opportunity to get staff back in work and begin the process of returning to normal operations.
However, even with plans for staff to return and businesses returning to normal operations, it is important for you to do this safely and at the right time, ensuring that strict social distancing measures are still being followed to keep everyone safe.
This means that you should be planning for the safety of your staff, visitors, and reputation to avoid any costly and potentially devastating mistakes. If you haven’t already thought or considered a security presence at your business, thinking all security guards do is simply patrol at night in industrial estates, you couldn’t be more wrong.
Just as your business has had to change adapt to the changing environment, so have we and there are several ways a trained and specialised security presence could benefit your business.
1. Social Distancing and Security
Although lockdown procedures are relaxing social distancing rules are very much still in place. Our Security officers are trained to maintain social distancing measures and understand the increased risks that lockdown may have caused to your business. Our professional security guards can assist with the monitoring of people allowed within your building and can have security officers inside to keep your staff and customers safe. This may include guiding people to follow your one-way system and managing some individual who don’t follow guidelines.
2. Crowd Control
For businesses in the retail industry during lockdown queues outside as become the new norm, with many setting strict 2-metre guidelines. For supermarkets and smaller local businesses, this many see an increase in crowds at peak times (especially around lunchtime) and these will need to be managed.
Having security guards at your business acts as an incredible deterrent to unfavourable behaviour and can support social distancing measures too.
3. Traffic Control
Many popular fast-food restaurants are implementing drive-thru services and at peak times this could mean large queues of traffic. Maintaining good traffic flow within and outside of the restaurants’ premises, assisting with any parking or one-way systems and being highly trained in de-escalating any potentially heated outbursts, our security guards can be a welcomed addition in these difficult times.
