On any given day, Pubs and Restaurants see a heavy footfall. And if it’s a weekend, it won’t really be an understatement to say that they see the most of it. At such places, it is quite easy for security to become a huge concern with regards to the safety of the staff, property or even customers. It is the prime responsibility of restaurant and pub owners to invest significant effort into ensuring the safety of their property, staff and customers.
Here are the few most important points to remember while planning the security of your Restaurant or Pub:
Employee Training: Having security is vital, but it is also important for the employees to be trained properly in order to be able to handle minor mishaps withinthe premises or be able to make arrangements to prevent major ones from escalating. Restaurants and pubs must, hence, focus effort towards employee training. Cameras and Alarms: For a place as busy as a pub or restaurant, it can get pretty difficult to keep an eye on every spot and activity. CCTV cameras and safety alarms can help significantly in keeping an eye at spots that are difficult to monitor physically at all times.
Ambient lighting might be attractive for restaurants and pubs, but it is important to not overdo the “dark” aesthetic, since it might make the place even more difficult to monitor. In order to ensure safety, the restaurant must be careful with the lighting choice that helps not only with creating an attractive aesthetic but also with comfortable visibility for ensuring safety.
Physical locks can be easilybroken, keys can be lost or duplicated, compromising the security of the place significantly. In today’s digital age, it is important for restaurants and pubs to control the access to the premises and rooms with valuable inventory with keyless biometric systems to ensure only trusted personnel entry and prevent break-in attempts.
Restaurants and Pubs usually have some highly expensive inventory, be it fancy priceless cutlery, expensive ingredients, or liquor. The cash collected throughout the day also needs to be stored securely. These must be secured with tighter security measures than the rest of the premises with more controlled access than the rest of the place.
These are just a few of the several important aspects to keep in mind while planningthe security of a restaurant or pub. But these do not in any way stand to act as an alternative to professional security.
