How safe is your Service Station?

Other areas of safety

• Keep your staff motivated and trained and incentivise them by setting targets and developing reward systems, etc
• Link your alarm and panic buttons to an armed response company
• Install a silent panic button near the cashier and make sure that you and a staff member on the forecourt each have a remote panic button
• Offer the local police force free coffee and tea at your premises because their presence will deter most criminals
• Display signs where you state that the manager and cashier does not have the keys to the safe, the premises are being monitored by close circuit television and other signs informing these issues
• Install the necessary lighting, cameras and monitoring equipment to increase visibility and prevent anyone from hiding in dark corners
• Maintain the garden and keep bushes and shrubs trimmed to prevent criminals using them as a hiding place
• Keep important numbers of your nearest police station, ambulance and the petroleum company close by

Robberies not only affect the financial side of a business negatively, but the price owners and staff sometimes have to pay, is so much higher. No one can put a price on a life.

Transportation of cash

• Transport cash to the bank on a daily basis, but vary the times and route
• Use ordinary bags or containers to transport the cash in and refrain from using bank bags
• Always use a trustworthy and locked vehicle when travelling to the bank
• Beware of any suspicious people lurking around and do not tell people that you are going to the bank
• Park as close as possible to the bank and do not switch off the vehicle’s engine unless you think it is safe to do so
• If confronted by armed robbers hand over the money and co-operate at all times. This could save your life
• Ideally do not bank yourself – rather make use of a security company


How safe is your Service Station?

Safe and strong rooms

• Install a high quality safe and alarm system, which could assist in delaying the perpetrators and hopefully result in an arrest.
• The safe keys must be protected and controlled at all times.
• Ensure that the room where the safe is kept is secure and protected.
• Design the layout of the safe in such a manner that it is easy and safe for the cashier to make drops on a regular basis.
• The safe should not be visible to the public.

How safe is your Service Station?

The rate of armed robberies at service stations is alarming and taxing on owners and employees alike. It is ultimately the responsibility of the service station owner to protect his staff. There are, however, measures that can be taken to reduce the risk.
Most service station owners don’t bank their takings over the weekend. Therefore most robberies tend to take place over the weekend and on Monday between 9am to 11am. It is also an accepted assumption that the majority of robberies that do take place directly or indirectly involve staff. It is important that the owner not only pre-screen his staff properly, but also put in place the necessary controls to reduce the threat of robberies.
Handling of cash on the premises
• Any employee handling cash must be trustworthy, so pre-screening of staff is of utmost importance
• Casuals or temporary staff must not be allowed to handle cash unsupervised
• Keep copies of all staff ID’s and personal details including a list of next of kin, their addresses and contact number on file
• New employees should be made aware that dishonesty will be met with disciplinary and legal action
• Change all locks and keys as soon as an employee has been dismissed
• Never handle cash in clear view of the public
• The cash till should not exceed $1,000,00 at a time
• Remove cash from the drop safe behind closed doors
• Where possible, cash should be removed from the safe by a security company who has their own keys
• Try to become a cashless filling station
• The position of the cashier tills must make it difficult for “grab thieves” to reach



A lady's handbag which contained her cell phone, credit card, purse etc was stolen. Thirty minutes later she managed to call her husband from her friend's telephone, telling him what happened.

Her husband said, "I just received your text message asking me to remind you of your ATM pin and I have replied a little while ago".

When they rushed to the bank, the staff told them money had already been withdrawn.

The thief had used the stolen cell phone to text her husband and get hold of her PIN.

Within twenty minutes he (thief) had withdrawn her money from the bank account.

Please when sensitive information is being asked for through text message, confirm by calling back.

Also, when you being sent a text by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them.

If you do not reach them, be very careful about going places to meet family and friends who text you.

Cost-effective and low-tech tactics to Prevent Shoplifting in Your Retail Store.

Tip 4. Optimize Your Store's Design and Layout for Theft Prevention.

The design of your store can minimize opportunities for shoplifters to steal. Here's what you need to keep in mind:

• To eliminate blind spots in corners that shoplifters might use for hiding, make sure you install mirrors while making sure there's adequate lighting in all areas.

• Keep your fixtures and displays low for increased visibility.

• Keep small or expensive items in locked cabinets.

• Keep dressing rooms locked and keep tabs or limit the number of items taken in by each customer.

You can also take and compare notes from what your neighbouring retailers suggest based on their experience.

Tip 3. Leverage Coordinated Customer Service to Your Advantage.

It's important to take effective store and staff management tactics and use them as a tool against shoplifting. Here are a few customer service techniques to minimize opportunities to steal:

• Greet each customer that walks through your door, this lets them know that you're aware of their presence.

• Depending on the size of your store, you'll want to make sure you have an adequate number of floor staff at any given time.

• Create and implement a policy around bags brought in by customers.

• Train cashiers to watch price tags and have them be on the lookout for price switching.

• Have a code which enables staff to alert each other of suspicious activities.

Creating policies and training staff ahead of time regarding potential shoplifting scenarios will save you a ton of headaches that would occur from a more reactionary or ad hoc approach.

Tip 2. Identify Common Shoplifting Methods and Traits

Shoplifters will often work in pairs or larger groups so that there can be at least one person distracting the sales staff while the other proceeds to steal. The most common shoplifting method has to be hiding merchandise, here are common places where items can be quickly concealed:
• Clothing
• Handbags
• Strollers
• Umbrellas
• Purchased Merchandise

Occasionally, you might get the bold type of shoplifters who quickly grabs an item and runs out, but other things to keep watch on are price label switching, and false returns.
You'll also want to look for and keep these common shoplifters traits in mind when determining whether you should exercise caution or suspicion, specifically these "shoppers" tend to:

• Spend more time watching cashier or sales clerk than actually shopping
• Takes several items into the dressing room but only leaves with one
• Seems nervous and pick up random items with no interest

Depending on how long you've been in business, you'll start developing your own sixth sense for when to sound the alarm and when to keep your cool.

Cost-effective and low-tech tactics to Prevent Shoplifting in Your Retail Store.

Tip 1. Keep Your Store Organized and Products Well-Placed.

How easy should it be to identify whether something has gone "missing" from your store? Empty space on your shelves should be enough of a visual cue to signal something has gone wrong.

However, if your store is messy, disorganized, or a maze to get through, it can be harder to notice that you've been "gotten" until it's too late.

Security experts recommend the following: "You want to keep all your merchandise "faced," which means pulling your products to the edge of the shelf to create a solid wall of product. If someone sweeps the shelf, then it is easy to tell."

Tip 11. How to Prevent Home Burglary or to Reduce the Risk of Someone Breaking Into Your House

Leave Radio running

Noise helps prevent burglaries as well. Hightide Security recommends leaving the radio on all day so that burglars would think that someone is at home. Your home is more likely to be burglarized during the day because they think that nobody is home.

Tip 10. How to Prevent Home Burglary or to Reduce the Risk of Someone Breaking Into Your House.

Install motion sensors

Light is a great deterrent for night time break-ins. Hightide Security recommends homeowners install motion sensors on outdoor lights that turn on automatically if someone triggers them.

Our technical team is ready to install at your home or business premises.

Tip 9. How to Prevent Home Burglary or to Reduce the Risk of Someone Breaking Into Your House.

No land escaping

Burglars prefer to target homes that have hiding spots and escape routes in the yards, and abundant bushes and trees make for great cover. As a result, yards with less shrubbery and more open spaces aren't particularly appealing targets. If the home is open and relatively exposed, a burglar will think, 'I'm going to go in, and if something goes wrong, how am I going to get out of here?'

Tip 8. How to Prevent Home Burglary or to Reduce the Risk of Someone Breaking Into Your House

Be a neighbour

Neighbours can play a key role in preventing home thefts. Homeowners on friendly terms with their neighbours are less likely to be victimized by other members of their community. At the same time, closely knit neighbours are more likely to call the police if they see someone suspicious poking around your property. If they like you and they care about you and they are concerned about their community, then if they see something unusual going on then they will check it out or call the police.

So don't be a hermit: Get out and interact with your neighbours.


Tip 7. How to Prevent Home Burglary or to Reduce the Risk of Someone Breaking Into Your House.

Beware of the garage.

Garages are a common entry point for burglars. Open garage doors serve to advertise your belongings to a passer-by, which increases the likelihood of theft. So, homeowners should make sure their garage door remains closed anytime they aren't present. Take away the attractive appeal to what someone might want to steal.

Home Fire Safety & Protection Tips

A house fire is one of those things that you think can never happen to you. Unfortunately, they do happen, and we are all at risk of being victim to them. Chances are fairly slim that it will happen to you, but it is something for which every household should be prepared; you need to protect not only your property, but also your life and the lives of those around you. As we all know, the results of a house fire are devastating due to the loss of assets, memories, and people.

Most of us know that we need smoke detectors, but how often should do we check the batteries?

Smoke Detectors & Alarms

• Smoke detectors are useless if they don’t work. Most people who lived through a house fire thought that their smoke detectors were working at the time of the fire. Check your detector monthly to ensure that you can rely on it.

• Dead batteries are a common cause of smoke detector failure. Always have batteries on hand, and make sure you change the smoke detector batteries every 6 months.

• Smoke detectors do not last forever. In fact, most smoke detectors are the ionization type and need to be replaced about every 10 years. Check with your manufacturer to find out what recommendations they have with regards to replacement.

• Location, location, location. Make sure you have detectors near the home entry as well as near bedrooms.

• Keep smoke detectors away from air ducts in an effort to prevent debris build-up. Also, position detectors at least 6 inches from where the wall meets the ceiling.


Tip 6. How to Prevent Home Burglary or to Reduce the Risk of Someone Breaking Into Your House.

Be Prepared

Make sure you religiously back up your computers and laptops in the event those items are stolen. You may lose many years worth of family pictures and important documents.

Also, make sure your portable hard drive is kept hidden in an innocuous place where it won’t get hurt (like the kitchen pantry or laundry room).

Keep money out of site. If you have cash, keep it hidden. Putting that coffee can (for petty cash) in the pantry next to the sugar may probably keep it safe.

Take pictures or video of your valuables. Know the model numbers and purchase prices of your most expensive items. The insurance company will want this information if it’s stolen.
