Construction and building sites are often at risk of security breaches and vandalism attempts, with some suffering the aftermath of arson and trespassers. When planning construction and implementing a building site, you should be made aware of the risks you could encounter and how to prevent them. Protecting yourself as well as your workers is vital to the success of any project. 

Top Risks

Theft – If a construction site isn’t secured, you are leaving it at risk of theft. The loss of valuables and expensive equipment will cost your business more money and could even delay the project.  Expensive machinery can be quite appealing to some, especially in an unsecured building area. Opportunists will seek out these changes and take advantage of easily accessible valuables left unattended. 

Vandalism – Unfortunately, there are a select few members of society who will attempt to vandalise a construction site, especially those with no security measures in place. Whilst this type of damage caused doesn’t often present a serious loss, they are best avoided to prevent any additional costs or delays. Your construction site might be seen as an easy target if it’s not properly secured. 

Arson – Damage caused by fire can be more costly than theft or vandalism, especially if the fire is significant. Whilst fire safety precautions need to be put in place, preventing a member of the public from starting a fire on your construction site is also a worthy investment. Keeping the site clear and secured can stop an arsonist from seeking out trouble and impacting your construction. 

Trespassers – Thieves, vandals, and arsonists are all examples of trespassers that could find their way into your construction site. Trespassers also pose a different kind of threat if they are injured within the building area. Failing to secure proper safety measures for either workers or trespassers could result in legal action being taken against you. Protect yourself and your workers by implementing high-quality security measures. 

Preventions 

There are various ways you can secure the safety of your business site, preventing damage or loss to the construction project. Pride GB Security Service offers different security measures, all designed to protect a construction site. 

These include: 

Visible security will act as a deterrent for trespassers, with manned guarding and security dogs further dissuading members of the public. Access to 24/7 monitoring and surveillance allows you to keep a close eye on your construction site should a breach occur. This footage is also vital evidence in court in the events of criminal activity taking place on your construction site. 

Immediate responses to this danger, from guards or security dogs, could prevent further damage and discourage repeat offenders. Alarm systems will notify you and security personnel about the breach, allowing you to act accordingly. 

The services Pride GB Security can provide you with are all cost-effective and worthwhile investments. They will prevent loss of valuables and damage to the construction site, which could massively impact the deadline of a project. Safety and security are important.
