The Importance of Construction Security
Construction is a huge and valuable sector that includes storing and using high-value vehicles, materials, equipment, and gear. These factors make construction sites a lucrative target for criminals, as all of these materials can have a high resale value.
Furthermore, the construction sector employs a large workforce, many of whom could be at risk if there are disruptions or missing pieces of equipment. There are already numerous risks associated with construction sites, if intruders vandalize, damage, steal, or even remove equipment from the original positions there is a huge increase in risk, leaving the construction site unsafe for workers, visitors, and even the general public.
Projects can be delayed when supplies and equipment are destroyed or stolen, leading to extra expenditure and fewer profits overall. In addition, post-construction clean-up efforts such as removing graffiti will add further expenses.
Any risk assessment for a building site should include effective security measures. Angelside has provided effective and reliable construction site security systems for a number of construction sites throughout the UK and Europe, protecting the safety of personnel and equipment.
Lastly, is also important to note that many insurance firms are increasingly refusing to cover construction premises that do not have manned security available during off-peak hours. This emphasizes the need for and importance of establishing a strategy to handle construction site security.
Angleside Construction Security Solutions
Visible Security Guards
Angleside Security employs experienced and highly-trained security officers that are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to manage security on both large and small construction sites.
Security guarding with highly visible security guards is still one of the most effective security solutions, functioning as a visible deterrent to safeguard the wellbeing of your construction site and employees.
Our guards can monitor entry points like gates and barriers to ensure that all access to the construction site is approved. Construction sites are also vulnerable to internal security risks, such as theft by individuals who are permitted to work there. Employees, subcontractors, and such can be checked and verified by our guards.
Security Fencing & Barriers
Physical site protection is one of the most basic and straightforward methods of securing a construction site. This is normally achieved by erecting appropriate barrier fencing around the perimeter. This makes it very difficult to access the site and remove anything from it.
With barriers and fences, all pedestrian and vehicular traffic will be diverted to a single point of entry, which will be continuously monitored to verify that all access is approved. A revolving staff of qualified security officers can then supervise admissions and exits to the construction site.
CCTV Security Monitoring
Construction sites can benefit from surveillance cameras that can record footage and sound an alarm in the event of a security breach. These cameras can be watched by static security personnel on site or linked to a central control room.
Some of the video surveillance systems we utilize at Angleside Security include cameras with a 360-degree view of your facility, 24/7 motion-recording cameras and thermal detection. We can also dispatch mobile security patrols to respond to any security alarms.
Construction sites generally take up huge, open sections of land with various access points, which make them especially difficult to keep secure from outsiders. The solution? Mobile security.
Our mobile security services are ready to respond immediately if an alarm is triggered. We can deploy security patrols to monitor a building site during vulnerable times, such as after sunset, on a set timetable or make visits that do not follow a predictable pattern.
Our security officers don’t just drive around passively observing things. They are trained to exit the vehicle and conduct a thorough search of the perimeter around the construction site, looking for evidence of violation, unauthorised access, or missing materials.
