The Importance of Hiring Security for Your Construction Site

Construction Security Services

Construction sites present many security concerns and challenges. Protect against the financial loss of theft and vandalism by having a security plan in place for your construction site.

Why Do Construction Sites Need Security?

Theft is all too common on construction sites costing companies significant time and money. According to the National Equipment Register, construction jobsite theft costs the industry up to $1 billion each year. Construction sites are especially vulnerable to theft, vandalism, and trespassing because sites are out in the open and unsecured. Expensive equipment, tools, and materials often cannot be secured inside a building. Equipment and tool loss slow construction schedules and drives higher sourcing costs especially for larger or custom equipment.

There are a lot of responsibilities that come with managing construction projects. General contractors and project managers have enough to worry about without adding security concerns to the list. A professional security company understands the individual security needs for your worksite to develop an effective security strategy using a trained security team and innovative technology.

By having security on your jobsite, stolen equipment incidents decrease and projects are better able to stay on track and on time. You are not losing valuable work time because of theft which can result in penalties and loss of incentives if your project is based on a specific timeline and completion date.

What Kind of Security Do You Need?

The Great American Insurance Group estimates that 90% of equipment thefts take place between 6:00 p.m. on Friday and 6:00 a.m. on Monday. It is especially important to have security measures in place on your construction site during these times. Deterring and preventing theft and vandalism make your jobsites less attractive to crime.

Hire a reputable, professional security company that is flexible to your needs and works with you to customize a plan specific for your construction site. Mobile patrol service with GPS tracking is a cost-effective option that ensures your worksite is being watched while you are not there.

Security on your construction site protects your assets and your bottom line. By selecting a security company that specializes in construction security, you’ll minimize the potential risks to your jobsite. Contact Jim Pio for a custom security assessment of your construction site.
