Case Study: Safeguarding Businesses with Professional Key Holding
Keyholding is the act of keeping a spare key to a residential or commercial premises. A professional keyholding service will protect a business and its staff against unnecessary risks, costs and inconvenience, allowing for a rapid response to burglar or intruder alarm activations.
Keyholding ultimately provides a business with peace of mind and also the added possibility of reduced insurance premiums.
Finding a trustworthy keyholder is an integral part of running a successful business. An increased number of business leaders now understand the significant risks presented with designating their own staff as keyholders.
For this reason, organisations now opt to outsource key holding services to a qualified security company, such as Equilibrium Risk.
Equilibrium Risk monitors properties 24/7, across a variety of business sectors and if any disturbances occur they are investigated immediately, reducing the risk of criminal activity, burglary, theft and vandalism.
