The leisure industry is focused on recreation, entertainment and sports and often many of these activities involve risk. Many gyms are open 24 hours a day, with long periods of time when the premises will be left unmanned. Externally monitored CCTV security systems in circumstances such as these is imperative.

Activities within the leisure industry will often require participants to remove valuables such as watches, phone and wallets, making it an enticing target for potential thieves. Making sure that entrance and exits are sufficiently locked with access control security systems will ensure that only the permitted people can enter.

Keeping leisure centres secure is the duty of the managers and owners. Whilst it may be personal responsibility for personal possessions, it falls upon the management to provide secure lockers and CCTV cameras, access control and intruder alarms to do their upmost to keep belongings and guests as safe as possible.

As with any service industry, it takes years to build a solid reputation and only 5 minutes to destroy it. With the power of social media, security miss haps go viral very quickly.
