How to Protect a Prefabricated Construction

82502608_s.jpgProtecting your business is something we’re all worried about, and if your business happens to be inside a modular construction, you might believe protection is less sturdy than a regular building.

While we’d argue that this isn’t the case, you can always enhance the safety of your modular building by undertaking certain steps to ensure its protection.

Here’s what you can do to help secure your modular building.

Invest in Security Measures

CCTV cameras, burglar alarms, even a padlock will be some kind of security measure which can help protect your building.

It might seem fiddly, but there are ways it can be done and definitely worth looking into as they even work for regular buildings. Even fake CCTV cameras are proven to help prevent crimes, despite the fact they don’t work. 60% of burglaries are said to be deterred simply because one such camera is visible.

Carry Out a Risk Assessment

Yes, they’re boring, but carrying out a risk assessment is very necessary, especially when it comes to protecting your modular construction.

While you’ll be assessing any potential dangers to your premises, you’ll be able to assess any potential flaws in your own security measures at the same time.

Every detail must be covered! Even if you think something is only a small risk, it’s best to be written down and assessed so that a solution can be provided.

Undertake Regular Checks  

Checking basic things like windows, doors and locks will enhance your security tenfold. Even if you have to go back to the property to make sure you locked the front entrance, it’s best to do that than to leave it to chance.

It helps if you make regular security checks before you leave the premises, especially if you’re the last to leave. Have a checklist made ready and ensure it’s all carried out every night before you leave.

Control Access

It may seem a tad paranoid, but limiting access to the modular construction will double its protection. Having every single employee own a key is obviously a bad idea. Be sure to provide only senior members of staff access to the property and maybe a few others who’ve proven they can be trusted.

Alternatively, a key card or coded access to a building can add that extra layer of protection. A code, for instance, tends to be much more secure than a regular key and can work wonders in increasing security.

In short, just because you have a modular construction, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t double down on your security. That being said, our modular buildings at Quickway are pretty secure. Take a look at some of our past projects to see for yourself.
