Unoccupied Premises – During Covid-19
The lifting of current lockdown restrictions still appears to be some way off. It is worth noting that some commercial insurance policies would automatically reduce cover for premises that remain unoccupied. Each insurer has a different approach to this. Most insurers will expect the premises to be protected, and the policyholder will be expected to (at a minimum) carry out the following:
- Regular (weekly) internal and external checks of the premises details of dates and times to be logged.
- All security measures to be in place e.g. alarms, locks, shutters.
- Fire alarms to be operational.
- Removal of all post and other combustible materials where possible.
- Keyholder/Emergency contacts to be up to date.
- External bins to be moved at least 10 metres from the building.
If you are unable to carry out all or any of the above, Securitay are happy to help, we currently provide these services to over 500 public and private sector premises.
Securitay is proud to help our amazing NHS, while also providing bouncers and security staff with employment, as their jobs have been widely affected due to the coronavirus and government restrictions.

CCTV Accreditation ensures future growth.
We are delighted to announce that our Control Centre in Broughty Ferry has been awarded a Public Space CCTV license by the Security Industry Authority.
The challenges to achieve this coveted accolade entailed bringing the existing Control Centre up to BS7958 standards. Which included the purchase of equipment and the enhanced training and licensing of the existing Control Centre staff. To achieve this Securitay decided to put in place a Control Centre Manager they promoted internally, and Martin Dunsmuir was appointed early 2019. Martin’s previous experience in Control Rooms was invaluable in ensuring the upgrade and training of staff met the exacting standards.
Martin is confident that his team operating the innovative control centre systems will attract new business, not just for CCTV, but for monitoring of outreach field operatives and lone workers. Also, this increase will allow him to recruit additional team members.
Deputy MD Richard Jennings said,
“We are delighted that the investment in enhancing the control centre facilities, proved successful. Our industry is moving from physical on site security guards to supplementary technical solutions. We are confident that this accreditation and new systems will enable us to further develop our diversity into the remote monitoring sector, guarantee future employment and grow our existing 130 strong workforce”.
