Advice from Onis

Are you assets protected, do you have sufficient security measures in place to protect your business?

Is your company, your employees and your customers at risk?

Think about the companies you are doing business with?
Do you really know what is happening to your assets?
Don’t accept anything on face value?

Ask yourself

Do I know enough about the security of my assets? Are the organisations I’m associated with looking after my best interests or taking advantage of my processes? Is my business at risk have I evaluated potential threats?

And the big question --

Have I done everything I can to protect my customers, assets and business?

"The fight against metal theft continues in a climate of minimal enforcement and at a time when the legislation is still very much in its infancy. We have a challenging period ahead with the recent demise of the National Taskforce, and lack of any coordinated approach to dealing with the problem.

"We cannot allow metal theft to re emerge and we must tackle trading fraud by setting a new bench mark in terms of what is acceptable and what isn't.  In the absence of a national task force and coordinated enforcement, industry now finds itself at the forefront of enforcement."  Robin Edwards
