      Why Does a Construction Site Need Security?

      Posted: Dec 3 2018

      To many opportunistic thieves, construction sites are like a goldmine. With fuel, materials, vehicles and high value equipment, as well as personal possessions from many of the workers, the appeal can be all too tempting. There are also many planned thefts that take place in building sector, but the most effective method for deterring intruders is to work with a leading security company to bring in highly trained guards with plenty of experience.

      When your staff pack up and leave after a hard day’s work, they should be able to relax knowing the site is secure, with expensive materials and machinery left untouched. At Enrova, when we provide construction companies with talented security guards, we undertake risk assessments because every project is unique, however, some of the most obvious forms of protection include restricting access to the site, protecting assets, surveilling people, providing site safety, liaising with the police, and offering controlled evacuations when necessary.

       

      Preventing vandalism and arson

      It’s a sad reality but vandalism and arson are also common and this can be for a number of issues. There are many cases where local individuals are so against the project itself for political or commercial reasons that they commit deliberate damage to make a statement.

      Having reliable security personnel has always been important in the construction trade but it’s never been more necessary than it is today. The sheer fact that insurance companies refuse to insure sites without having any provision of manned out of hour’s security goes to show just how important an on-site officer can be. They will not only work closely with site management teams to minimise theft, but put various procedures in place to protect equipment and deter intruders who have a particular axe to grind. Obviously any theft, fire or vandalism can cost large sums of money; so preventing risks from occurring may be one of the smartest decisions you can make for your construction company.
