Fly-tipping is on the rise, with vacant sites being prime targets

The number of incidents has increased for the third year in a row.

Many asset owners will already be aware of the devastating effects that vandalism and arson can have on a business, as it is expensive and time-consuming to deal with these. Deterring such crimes is difficult, however, as most vandalism, including graffiti and arson, occurs at night and on weekends when sites or properties are vacant. Fly-tipping is also on the rise, with vacant sites being prime targets. The number of incidents has increased for the third year in a row: councils across England and Wales reported 936,090 cases in 2015–16, up 4% on the previous year.

Skyguard: British Gas

Energy theft is an ever-increasing problem. It's estimated that stolen supplies of gas and electricity costs the industry £500million a year. 

As the UK's largest energy and home services company, British Gas knows of this problem only too well. Not only is it costly to the organisation but tampered gas pipes and bypassed meters endanger lives. Crude methods to illegally obtain supplies can lead to fatal electric shocks and gas explosions. 

British Gas Field Engineers are at the forefront of inspection and detection in relation to their supplies. British Gas have to first apply for a warrant to enter a premises in order to conduct a thorough inspection. Naturally, with the threat of prosecution and serious consequences should someone be found to be stealing, these inspections can rapidly escalate into an aggressive and hostile situation.

With the threat of danger on two fronts, lone working engineers can find themselves in difficult and hazardous situations. Thankfully, they're never truly alone as help and reassurance is just a button push away thanks to their MySOS personal safety devices.
