According to the Australian Institute of Criminology, there were 188,756 ‘unlawful entries with intent’ in 2016, making it one of the most prevalent types of property crimes in Australia.
All businesses face the threat of burglary and should put measures in place to reduce their risk. This could involve keeping your premises well-maintained, cutting back any shrubbery, and installing sensor lights, alarm systems, surveillance cameras and security locks.
Cash and valuables should be locked away, and staff trained in security procedures if they are closing the premises after hours.
Burglary Insurance can also form part of a risk management program, as it provides financial protection for theft. Cover extends to contents such as machinery, computers and inventory, as well as cash and valuables kept in a locked safe.
This type of cover can easily be added to your overall business insurance package making it easy and affordable.
