Security & CCTV for abattoirs - regulatory compliance & site protection

Abattoirs face unique security threats, including theft, vandalism, and unauthorised access. With legal requirements mandating CCTV in specific areas, these facilities must employ the right type of surveillance.

As a result, suitable camera types, such as IP CCTV, are essential for compliance and effective monitoring.

Therefore, these systems not only ensure adherence to legal standards.  Furthermore, they also enhance overall site security, safeguarding against various risks inherent to abattoir operations.

Furthermore, with the rise of activism, securing abattoirs via perimeter security and access controls is becoming more and more important.

Abattoir CCTV & legal compliance

Abattoirs must comply with legal requirements for CCTV installation.

As a result, non-compliance can lead to legal penalties and heightened vulnerability to security breaches.

Effective abattoir CCTV coverage is mandated in critical areas to monitor activities, ensuring safety and regulatory adherence.

Therefore, abattoirs must prioritise these requirements to avoid legal repercussions and maintain a secure and reputable operation.

CCTV system features

thSafeguard Systems offers advanced CCTV solutions tailored for abattoirs.

Firstly, these include IP CCTV cameras utilising Local Area Networks for comprehensive, live, and recorded footage.

Secondly, the systems are designed to grant access to designated parties, like Official Vets, for necessary oversight without disrupting daily operations.

Safeguard Systems provides a holistic approach, encompassing design, installation, and maintenance of these surveillance systems, ensuring continuous and effective monitoring.

Site access control

Effective site access control is vital for abattoirs.

Implementing intercom systems manages the flow of visitors, and ensures only authorised personnel gain entry.

Trackable key card access systems for employees enhance security.

As a result, these measures manage entry and provide a detailed log of site access – crucial for security audits.

In case of incidents, our access control systems provide a secure, controlled environment within the abattoir.

Perimeter security & external surveillance

Perimeter security is essential for abattoirs to deter and detect outside threats.

These systems are particularly important to spot potential thieves targeting meat to sell on the black market and activists driven by political beliefs.

Therefore, advanced perimeter security solutions, including surveillance cameras and motion detectors, play a critical role in early threat identification.

This enables prompt response to protect the site’s assets and maintain operations.

I've partnerred with Safeguard on several projects before and I wouldn't go anywhere else for a quality security system installation. Our client, a high-end hair salon required a full studio design and fit-out along with a highly effective CCTV system to help protect and watch over their premises.

Safeguard Systems fitted a complete camera and intruder beam system for my storage compound, started the job very quickly and explained what was possible clearly. Really happy with the system, the remoter viewing capabilities and I've had no reliability issues either.

I got in touch with Safeguard Systems to help secure our warehouse unit with an intruder alarm and CCTV system. They were incredibly helpful and came out to conduct a survey on our premises when others just wanted to provide a quote over the phone.
