CCTV security camera systems are a must-have for any modern business. Not only does CCTV provide a fantastic visual deterrent against theft, vandalism and burglary but it can also reduce health and safety risks in your workplace that can sometimes result in costly claims against your business saving you thousands in the long run.
60% of businesses in the UK are affected by crime each year with hundreds of thousands of burglaries and this costs a staggering £5bn, with an astounding 10% of business lost as a consequence of crime. CCTV has become the primary method of carrying out surveillance of areas in businesses that may be accessed by the public. Specifically, in shops and areas where there is a high risk of theft, CCTV security camera systems have proven to be a great preventive.
Risk management is difficult for many kinds of businesses with liability claims to grow every year and fraudulent or not, these claims could cost your business thousands in compensation. And whilst a vast majority of these types of claims are often from people outside of your business, sometimes you could be made liable if you are seen to be negligent to your employee’s safety.
Benefits of CCTV Security Camera Systems
Installing CCTV security camera systems into your business premises particularly where staff are doing jobs that carry high-risk factors, ensures that if a claim against you was to go to court unjustly, you could use the CCTV as evidence that you were providing adequate protection and reasonable precautions for your employees when the incident occurred.
CCTV reduces the risks significantly and can be used to monitor where the risk is more associated with the health and wellbeing of staff and show if certain jobs were not being done according to the safety procedures. However, you must take into consideration that whilst you use CCTV in the workplace you do so with the knowledge that it does not affect overall levels of trust in the employment relationship. Particularly with employment in the public sector – you need to respect your employees’ rights to privacy under human rights law.
