Risk Management

Managing your security with Video Surveillance

In managing risks relating to security, many businesses have found that Video surveillance is an effective method to utilise. By itself it will not necessarily prevent theft or vandalism, but it will assist in identification of perpetrators and the recovery of property. Informing the public with signs that CCTV cameras are in use probably have the best prevention effect.

Those perpetrators may not necessarily be Burglars breaking in at night, but could be staff or customers taking property during the day, so Video Surveillance is useful 24 hours a day. An additional benefit is keeping an eye on staff productivity particularly in front of house.

Further, it can not only assist with security, but the ability to assist with liability issues involving customer or employee safety including Occupational Health and Safety issues. When an allegation of an injury being caused, the incident may be captured on video giving a clear evidence of the events.

Implementing a camera solution, with the latest remote access or CMS technology, can reduce these risks faced by your business. The technology is becoming so good and so cheap now,

Business Surveillance can improve business performance and the potential for growth.

Installing a surveillance solution can reassure stakeholders that CCTV proactively defends business against an array of risks up to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. This is achieved by using the latest in integrated digital video recording equipment, information capture and remote access technology.

High Court dismisses Business Interruption Test Case

Today the High Court dismissed appeal by Insurers on the Business Interruption test case. Even the big insurers make silly mistakes! But you the policy holder may benefit if you were one of the 40% of Business Pack policy holders that added Business Interruption cover to their Business Pack. While it was never the intent of insurers to cover policyholders for the loss of income from a pandemic, the fact that insurers never factored in a risk premium for it, and the fact there is supposed to be a material or physical loss to trigger the Business Interruption section, none of that matters according to the highest Court in the land. So what was the mistake? Simply that when insurers defined what they considered to be the definition of an infectious disease, they referred to the Quarantine Act of 1908 which since was superseded by the Biodiversity Act of 2015. Because the Quarantine Act of 1908 no longer exists, apparently you cannot draw on this for a definition of an infectious disease? Not one of the insurers picked up on this! Shows how much interest we take on the business of Governments, except what is reported in the media.
