Construction Site Safety Tips

In order to fight against construction site theft, here are a few tips for keeping your site as safe as possible.

1.     Install Lights: Installing good lighting around the construction site ensures that no one can enter or exit without being seen. Good lighting also gives security cameras and other nighttime surveillance maximum visibility of the area.

2.     Security Cameras & Alarms: Advances in technology have provided us with extremely high-tech security systems outside of the traditional permanent surveillance systems. Most security systems can be run via app, so it’s very easy to monitor your site in real-time. Strategically install cameras around expensive equipment, high-traffic areas, and all entrances and exits. Installing good lighting also compliments security systems by providing ample visibility of the construction site.

3.     guard-shack-boothsSignage: Certain states have signage requirements for construction and trespassing. Check your local regulations for how many signs are required, what signs to use, etc. Signs are the easiest way to mark your territory and to alert non-authorized personnel if they are trespassing. Make sure the signs are easy to read, visible, and have adequate lighting around them.

4.     Locking Up Equipment: This one sounds like a no-brainer but there are some extra precautions you should take while locking up for the night. Try to install PIN-pads wherever possible and change the PIN frequently. For larger equipment, monitor who has access to the keys and lock up the keys at the end of the day. Remove steering wheels, batteries, and other essential items from larger machinery and lock them up in a secure area. Park large equipment in a well-lit area that is monitored by cameras or a security guard.

5.     Maintain a Constant Security Presence:  One of the easiest ways to monitor your construction site at all times is to hire full-time security. Alarms and cameras are great for after-hours monitoring but having a full-time security officer allows surveillance of all areas that cameras may not be able to see.
