Coronavirus: Protecting your business from arson

Rubbish may have built up during lockdown, so remove anything an arsonist could target.

Waste collections

When you return to work after lockdown check if any rubbish has built up while you’ve been away. Now’s the time to dispose of it properly, or it could become a target for arson attacks.

Keep an eye on your regular refuse and recycling collections, which may have changed during the Coronavirus pandemic. If they’re no longer taking place you’ll need to make other arrangements. If the waste collection schedule has changed, you’ll need to adapt your routine.

Security

Is your burglar alarm still working? Have you checked that your shopfront security grill remains secure? Test all your security measures, including CCTV and lighting, to make sure they’re still protecting your business.
