In this article we take a look at the risks to manufacturing businesses and the best ways of utilising manufacturing security provision to protect people, processes and spaces within your environment.
The threat to the security of your organisation is constantly evolving from raw materials being stolen from factories to warehouses being wiped clean of their stock, industrial sites are under constant attack from both petty criminals and highly organised gangs.
So how do you best secure your equipment, materials, processes and spaces as well as protecting against other material threats? It doesn’t have to be difficult to find a security solution but how can the manufacturing security provision deliver a tangible return on investment?
Your manufacturing security provision should do much more than just protect your staff, equipment, stock, processes and spaces. A fully integrated security provision is a true value add proposition providing a solid Return on Investment in many ways.
Your manufacturing security provision should provide multiple layers of protection against risks and threats. It should also be continually looking to provide improvements in operational efficiency by integrating seamlessly with your business, minimising downtime and preventing the disruption caused by any security breaches.
Disruption costs money and this is currently a primary consideration given the cost inflation we are all experiencing. So it is vital that your manufacturing security provider is seen as a proposition that both saves money and provides added value.
Given the varied nature of the security threats and risks to your business the need for an holistic and integrated approach to security provision is vital.
Because the risks are vast you need to look for an organisation that can provide a tailored manufacturing security package that includes (but not limited to):
The cost of interruptions to the business caused by unwanted and unauthorised people costs the business time and money. Time to put right any damage that has been caused and the cost to replace equipment, not to mention the losses incurred during any downtime.
The benefits of having a visible security presence should be forefront of mind when considering business operations. These benefits include:
Manufacturing security should be an integral part of your organisation and whilst the scope of ‘security’ as a professional service is broadening – ‘Keeping your people safe’ now extends beyond the typical manned guarding to a much broader remit. It’s becoming more closely integrated with Health & Safety and should be seen as an asset and investment, not a cost.
Whatever solution your organisation chooses to implement, it should be from a security supplier that is able to adapt to your organisation’s requirements. Whether you require a team of security guards, security monitoring equipment or individual guards your provider should be able to scale up or down quickly and efficiently for a seamless security provision.
Your industrial security provision should add extra value and by mitigating the risks of significant cost associated with the disruption of business operations and damage to reputation and credibility will provide a true ROI.
