Risk Management


All businesses require security measures to help safeguard their people and assets. At ESA Risk, we ensure effective security is implemented to protect you and your businesses, with an efficient, cost-effective and professional service.

Our supportive security services provide tailor-made measures to suit your business’ requirements. Whether you need protection from repeated break-ins or assistance with compliance for insurance purposes, we’ve got you covered.

We are committed to providing reliable and professional security, and cater for both private individuals and companies within fields such as construction, property management, financial services, retail, hospitality and insolvency. We also work with local authorities, the utilities sector and NHS Trusts. If you need security risk assessments, manned security or surveillance, ESA Risk can provide the tools.

Your business is in safe hands

ESA Risk’s security experts have longstanding contracts in place with major property companies across the UK and carry out regular inspections on vacant properties. Our professionals monitor the physical security and integrity of buildings and can provide the installation of robust security systems to protect and prevent loss of intellectual property.

In business, people are your assets, and ESA Risk’s security measures also involve the close protection of people. ESA Risk operates a team of professional concierge security and front-of-house services that are manned by highly trained security officers, all fully licensed by the Security Industry Authority (SIA).

With a 24/7/365 manned security suite, we can provide you with the peace of mind that your safety and protection is in place, wherever you are. Our technical team can provide you with temporary or permanent CCTV and alarm installations to continually monitor and safeguard you, your family and your assets.

Security risk assessments

If you have a security need, we offer a high-quality assessment that can help you identify what services are critical for your sites. As a first step, we will deploy a security consultant to visit you and review whether you require services related to cyber security, CCTV remote monitoring or physical security. In the case of physical security, the consultant will then analyse the crime statistics in the area, take photos around the site to identify where security needs to be tightened up and then put a proposal together outlining recommendations and a menu of options to reflect your budget.

Our personal, swift customer service will ensure you feel secure and are satisfied with our work. All our team members are experienced and fully trained to cater to your security needs. We can monitor your buildings regardless of the type and size, we can protect your assets and we can provide the security needed during property monitoring and valuation.

We build customer feedback into our risk assessments so that the services best reflect your needs and fit your circumstances. Our experts can make recommendations to improve the security on site such as the installation of steel shutters or screens on windows and doors, which are critical in high-risk areas that are vulnerable to break-ins from arsonists, squatters, thieves and vandals. We can also organise regular inspections to identify any leaks that might damage an empty property. Insurers will typically insist upon documented periodic inspections of vacant premises as part of their terms and conditions.

Full range of security services

We can help with commercial evictions and property evictions, too, working closely with local authorities and solicitors to ensure that the eviction process is handled discreetly, safely and sensitively.

Whether it is a one-off service or the provision of long-term security arrangements, we are equipped to respond to your needs with a range of services that will safeguard your business. We work with speed and agility to put security measures into place, and our ‘hands-on’ approach promises optimum client care and protection through the delivery of a high-quality service, cost-effective and professional service.
