With the majority of construction sites around the UK closed for the foreseeable future, it’s now more important than ever to have the right security measures in place.
The threats are many
Threats to construction sites are plentiful, particularly in crowded cities such as London. The wide range of specialist equipment including vehicles, machinery and tools used and stored there means there is a constant threat of theft of valuable equipment. Then there is the storage of fuel and building materials that are also attractive to thieves.
And it’s not just thieves you must be prepared for – there is also the risk of mindless vandalism. Trespassers can cause damage that presents danger to human life, such as leaving wiring unsafe or starting fires that can have devastating consequences. This could be compounded further by a situation where a construction company finds itself liable for accidents involving trespassers who have broken in because security was inadequate.
The solution can be simple
The best way to reduce these threats is to start by carrying out a thorough risk assessment. Doing so will help you to determine what measures you should take to deter any would-be intruders. Employing 24/7 manned security guard patrols, installing monitored CCTV and ensuring fences and locks are up to the job of preventing entry are all measures that will bolster the security of your construction site.
