Safety And Security For Your Construction Sites

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) report on crime in the construction industry is an interesting and shocking read. In the report, they reveal that the construction industry loses over £800 million a year to common crimes such as theft and vandalism. Loss of essential equipment or materials can be a major setback for any contractor. Replacements lead to a project incurring substantial and unplanned for costs. Firecore Secure offers bespoke security services with tools such as biometric access control that allows site managers to restrict and monitor movement in and around their lots. Further Firecore Secure’s construction protection offering also includes a traffic marshal service. On average, each year, around seven workers lose their lives as a result of accidents involving vehicles or mobile plants on construction sites. A further 93 are seriously injured. Firecore Secure’s traffic marshals are the eyes and ears monitoring heavy vehicle drivers on construction sites. They ensure that each route is clear for vehicles and free of obstacles thereby preventing any accidents from happening. 

Using CCTV To Reduce Incidences Of Theft

Another cause for concern that’s affecting businesses in Birmingham and West Midlands County is shoplifting. According to data analysed by Checkpoint Systems, there are 1000 shoplifting crimes committed every single day in the UK. What’s even more alarming is the fact that 52% of these cases go unpunished. Firecore Secure provides security guards who are part of our comprehensive protection packages for retailers looking to eliminate these incidents from affecting their bottom line. 

Building site CCTV

Another key deterrent to would-be criminals is our CCTV security. According to data from the College Of Policing’s study on CCTV as a crime reduction tool, just having visible cameras reduces the potential for theft by up to 16 per cent. A total number of 24,927 burglary cases were registered by the West Midlands Police in 2019. While we acknowledge that the West Midlands Police force are doing their very best, what’s startling is that despite these figures they do not have any dedicated burglary officers. Our security guards in Birmingham fill this gap and work hand in hand with the police to help eliminate these crimes.

Firecore Secure offers a rapid deployment monitored CCTV service that protects your homes, businesses and vacant properties from would-be criminals. In case of a fire or attempted break-in our NSI gold monitoring centre will caution the intruder with a pre-recorded message, call the relevant emergency services, and alert Firecore Secure’s mobile patrol team who will rush to your property, business or home immediately. Our team will remain there until your authorised person arrives. This service is ideal for car parks, shopping malls, business parks, retail parks and industrial estates. The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) is the leading certification body for security and fire protection services in the UK. Our alarm response centre’s gold certification signifies that we adhere to the highest standards required by emergency service institutions in the United Kingdom.  

Event Security

Trespassing is a nightmare that many event organizers have to deal with. Firecore Secure provides event security for festivals, weddings, concerts, charity events and more. Our specially trained event mobile patrol units are made up of security guards who regularly patrol the premises of your event minimising the opportunity for crime, theft, trespassing and vandalism from happening. We also offer K9 security services for festivals or government meets. It goes without saying that security dogs have a greater sense of smell and hearing than humans, which makes them a perfect tool for deterring site intrusions or preventing illegal substances such as narcotics from entering your event.
