Industrial and manufacturing security protection

Industrial premises often pose many challenges when it comes to security. From construction sites, warehouses to factories that are often vast, open-air, remote locations it can be extremely challenging to secure these areas. With many factories located in remote locations, upholding a rigorous factory security plan will indicate that your site is by no means a site that makes it easy for vandals, thieves, and intruders of any kind to take advantage of. With many warehouses and factories falling victim to expensive equipment being stolen and machinery being tampered with, this is not only financially detrimental but can leave your staff operating dangerous equipment.

With material theft on the rise and industrial sites often located away from the passing public or local authorities, it’s down to you and you alone to ensure that you’ve got the security of your site covered by a company you can trust.

Leaving abandoned, valuable equipment and materials lying around overnight with no sign of security in place is a criminal’s heaven. This is why half the challenge is ensuring you’ve got the deterrence factor in place to avoid any criminal activity in the first place. Equipping your site with not only active CCTV and industrial security guards, but fencing and security signs is a positive way of directing any potential criminals away from your site.

With constant high volumes of visitors and workers passing through your doors, extensive stock, and expensive equipment lying around, factories make for an extremely vulnerable environment when it comes to crime.

HSS fully understands the immense potential for losses and liabilities manufacturing and industrial plants face every day. From loss prevention to unlawful entry, we know the risk you face on a daily basis. The security of manufacturing, industrial, as well as warehouse and distribution facilities and operations is an issue of significant importance.
