Many individuals access construction sites every day. Builders, painters, delivery personnel, electricians, plumbers, and many other individuals will access the site on a regular basis. The chances of seeing new faces on the construction site are higher as the work progresses. So, keeping track of those individuals who visit the respective site can be a difficult task for management, which where a designated security officer can be helpful. Security personnel can control site access and keep record of who is entering/exiting, which leaves little room for theft and unauthorized entry.
Construction sites generally consist of various items ranging from building material to power tools. If left unprotected, construction sites can be easy targets for thieves of different types. Seasoned thieves can go through the overall setup of an unsecured construction site during the daytime and come back at night for theft, when the site is left unattended. The cost of the robbery may vary from a few hundred dollars to thousands, possibly even millions.
Prevention of Vandalism
Vandalism is another serious threat associated with construction sites. According to statistics, the construction industry altogether loses hundreds of millions of dollars annually as a result of vandalism. Repairing or replacing the damaged equipment or work can be significantly costly. In addition to that, construction companies the become victims of vandalism tend to lose future business and have higher insurance premiums.
