Reigate, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 13, 2010 -- Did you know that 40% of businesses that suffer from a major fire, flood or theft close down within a year?
In most cases the business could have avoided the incident that caused their closure with a few easy and relatively inexpensive measures.
The first being security, secondly computer back-up and lastly faulty electrical equipment. Security is easily overlooked and the easiest to do. A simple and easy questionnaire supplied by Southern Lock & Safe will determine if the premises are fully protected. The questionnaire determines the level of physical security fitted to doors and windows as well if the business uses a safe to protect cash and valuables.
Computer back ups are easy to perform and yet most businesses donât bother. There are lots of companies offering a back-up program to a new hard drive that you would need to purchase. The whole thing can be achieved for under Â£100. For a little more you can even back up on-line to a remote server at night when the computer isnât being used. You can even back-up to discs and put them into a Data safe, which Southern Lock & Safe would be happy to help you with.
Electrical âPATâ testing again is an easy process, with a suitably qualified electrician. They will test each appliance for the correct fuse, frayed or damaged cables and tight connections. This type of testing should minimise the chances of an electrical fire.
