Construction Site Security
Construction site security services are essential to protect your property. Due to a large amount of expensive equipment and materials, the construction industry is often a target for theft and vandalism. Setting up systems to protect against property damage and construction site theft can save your company time and money in the long run.
Thieves are attracted to lumber, power tools, copper, and other metals and equipment. If left unguarded, they can even steal heavy equipment. Construction companies must also consider the risk of employee theft, which can occur when there are no security measures in place at the construction site.
Many construction security measures make criminals think twice about committing a crime in the first place. They know it is more likely to get caught.
Many crimes on construction sites are opportunistic, and a fence serves as a great deterrent because would-be thieves can’t just grab it and run away. And it is important to keep the materials and equipment’s from a certain distance to fence and place “Warning” signs. This is a simple fix that should be used in conjunction with some of these other options.
A loud alarm can startle and deter an intruder. In some cases, you may prefer a silent alarm that alerts the authorities without startling the intruder.
Lighting not only makes people visible walking through the space but can also make a potential criminal believe that there are still employees working on the premises. Motion detectors are also a good idea, as the sudden light can alert an intruder. Our construction site services team will make sure your fence and all equipment are well lit. Lighting should be carefully arranged throughout the property to avoid shady hiding places.
Site Security Guards
Armed or unarmed construction site security guards can help deter criminals, or stop a crime in progress – or at least report it to law enforcement – before serious damage has been done. Your security guard can also help control access to the site during working hours to ensure that only authorized contractors and visitors are allowed on site.
Improve Project Morale
Evidence shows that there is a direct correlation between hiring professional safety representatives and their impact on workplace morale and productivity. It is also true for construction site where safety officers may patrol. When workplace safety is ensured, employees and contractors are more likely to be productive and enthusiastic about their jobs.
Provide Protection and Peace of Mind
All businesses have the potential for growth, but also potential for loss. A construction site security monitoring service can prevent this damage and give contractors and employees a sense of security. Construction sites often contain hundreds and thousands of dollars worth of heavy machinery, tools, and building materials. When equipment is stolen or damaged, the contractor is responsible for replacing it, which often takes a lot of time and money.
Increase The Efficiency Of Your Team
By hiring our construction site security guards to help control inventory, visitor access, schedule deliveries, and monitor site activities, teams can work better together and be more efficient. Site supervisors and project managers can better focus on their many tasks. Protocols that govern the location, safety, and accountability of equipment, materials, visitors, contractors, and employees provide a platform for smooth productivity.
