In 2022, the Construction industry now faces increasing fuel costs added onto the continued risk of plant and vehicle theft.
Securing, monitoring and using the latest innovations in technology to protect your sites has arguably never been more important.
The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) is a UK based association which monitors trends in the Construction industry. 92% of respondents were directly affected by construction site theft, with 21% stating that their construction sites were robbed on a weekly basis.
Construction site theft results in millions of pounds lost each year. The plant machinery and tools hire company Herts Tools revealed that over £17m worth of tools were stolen across London Construction sites in 2020. Statistics from insurer Allianz Cornhill reveal that theft alone costs the industry at least £800M a year. Costs include replacing stolen equipment, increased insurance pay-outs as well as project delays.
One reason to explain the occurrence of construction site theft is because sites are often unguarded at night.
Securing sites using the Generation 3.0 Triton CCTV Tower helps reduce the risk of crime. Using innovative technology, the Triton Tower monitors equipment with 360 degrees range, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Designed to track vehicle and human movement, the Generation 3.0 Triton CCTV Tower sends a confirmed alarm to our 24hr monitoring station. Live audio warnings are given to the intruder and, if required, rapid deployment of our Triton Security mobile officers.
