SECURING CONSTRUCTION SITES WITH COMMERCIAL SECURITY SERVICES
Updated: Nov 27, 2022
Construction sites are often highly targeted by thieves and vandals. After all staff have left the job site at the end of the day, the site becomes quiet, unmonitored, and potentially open. These things make the site an ideal environment for theft, fire, vandalism, loitering, flooding, and more. Having the right security services in place at a construction site can prevent these risks.
At Security Guard Group, we offer a wide range of Commercial Security services, including Construction Security. Our Guards will keep your job site secure 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our team can prevent a multitude of negative events and help keep your project on track. Below are just a few of the significant benefits our team can provide.
Prevention of Long-Term Affects
When a job site is the victim of theft, fire, vandalism, loitering, or flooding, there can be many long-term affects. For example, a stolen piece of equipment may result in job delays, loss of work, upset clients, and decreased profit. Staff may even develop a sense of fear that without implementing a strong security system, the threat may strike again.
Peace of Mind
Having a strong security system in place eliminates the burden that currently falls on staff. Data shows that the average construction business will face a minimum of two thefts annually. By having a job site secured by professional Security Guards, staff are able to leave the job site at the end of the day with peace of mind in knowing that the site will be kept secure until they return in the morning. Guards can also monitor deliveries, guests, and more of the daily operations that occur at job sites. This allows staff to focus on their jobs without having to worry about the security of the site.
Protection of High-Value Items
Construction sites have a multitude of high-value items present. This can include machinery, building materials, equipment, and more. The loss of these critical items can mean putting the job on hold, falling behind schedule, and losing profit. Historical data has shown that Ontario alone faces up to $20 million in stolen equipment annually. In addition, Canada has seen an increase in the amount of construction site thefts in the past year due to the rising market value of building materials, such as lumber, during the pandemic. Protecting high-value items is critical to a project’s success.
