Protecting Electronic and Telecommunications Equipment
As businesses explore new technology the need for special attention increases. By implementing easy risk control elements, you can keep innovating without worry.
With electrical and telecommunication equipment use on the rise, it’s important to consider the risks they may present to your business and mitigate these before anything happens.
- House equipment in specialised rooms that are fire retardant and have no water pipes running in the vicinity.
- Install smoke detectors and air conditioning in vulnerable areas.
- Keep storage away from equipment and maintain a tidy area around it.
- Ensure all items are protected from power surges and have an uninterrupted power supply in case of emergencies.
Finally, make sure you have a data backup of everything, enabling you to recover items and ensure you can keep business running as usual in any eventuality.
