School security measures

Our school is in an area that gets a bit rough at night. We've had a lot of vandalism at night and during the holidays, and it costs the school a lot to get the vandalism repaired, so we are upping our security measures. It's very distressing for the entire school community when the school is vandalised, so we are hoping that a combination of key, locks and grilles along with security patrols can help to reduce the rate of vandalism we experience. This blog is all about security measures for schools, and I want it to be a place we can share the measures that work for our schools.

Workplace COVID Security: How a Security Team Can Help


The COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage around the world. If you are looking to make your workplace COVID secure, you may be wondering how a COVID security company can help you. This article will explain everything you need to know.

Ensuring visitors wear appropriate face coverings

Front-of-house security can help to ensure that any visitors to the building wear an appropriate face covering. Scientists have found that wearing a face covering can help to reduce the transmission of the COVID virus. While lots of people are happy to wear face coverings, there are some individuals who still choose not to do so. By positioning a security detail in the reception are of your building, you will be able to check that everyone entering the building has some type of face covering. It is also a good idea to instruct the security team to issue face masks to people who don't have a face covering.

Conducting body temperature checks

Depending on the length of your day, you may require a security guard to conduct a check of your employees. A check that will look at the body temperature will allow your security team to make sure that you don't have any sick employees. Putting a good system in place to regularly check temperatures is a great way to ensure you can quickly detect people who may be unwell. If someone has a high temperature, the security team will instruct the person to return home so they can self-isolate to prevent the spread of the virus.

Encouraging hand washing

It is a good idea to place antibacterial gel dispensers at the reception area of your building so people can keep their hands clean. Security personnel can also help to train your staff to wash their hands with antibacterial hand gel. Washing your hands properly will help to kill any COVID-19 virus which is on the surface of the skin.

Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces

The security team can also be detailed to carry out regular cleaning and disinfection of surfaces. It is a good idea to have the team focus on high-touch areas such as the buttons in elevators, telephones, reception desks, and handrails. The team will apply a disinfectant spray to these areas before wiping them down.
