Construction sites security

Why security services are vital for construction sites

On the face of it, a construction site might not seem the go-to destination for a treasure trove of valuable items, but you’d be surprised at what opportunistic thieves steal and sell. For example, metal used for architectural purposes such as lead, zinc, copper, and aluminium often has a great deal of scrap value.

What’s more, there’s a good chance heavy plant and machinery will be left on site overnight, which are ‘big ticket’ items for many criminals. And while most workers will secure their own tools or take them home, thieves are always on the lookout for expensive goods to sell on quickly and easily.

But as well as being an opportunity to make some money, construction sites are often targeted by vandals. Although some offences are minor, others can lead to project delays and prove costly in the long run.

Therefore, it makes perfect sense for every construction site to have some sort of security in place. Along with protecting valuable and important assets from damage and theft, construction site security also ensures that projects can run smoothly and on time.

On top of that, some insurance companies will refuse to insure construction sites without any evidence of suitable security measures, such is their reputation for attracting illegal activity.

Here at Access Facilities Management, we’re proud to offer a comprehensive service to construction sites. Our experience and expertise will ensure that every construction site protected by us won’t fall foul of criminal damage or instances of theft.
