To help you avoid inconveniences, we have thought of some tips that, put into practice in a correct way, can get rid of many inconveniences.
Light up your construction site
Nothing attracts thieves more than a target in a dark place. A thief who operates in the dark, in addition to the fact that he will carry out his activity without hindrance, will also be difficult to catch. Thieves avoid approaching locations where they can be identified. Proper lighting of the construction site is one of the best means of defense against thieves and vandals.
Install CCTV cameras
A video system will certainly act as a major deterrent to potential thieves. If a more daring thief still dares to enter the secure perimeter, it allows you to observe him in real time and act promptly.
Ensure the security of the perimeter
The good delimitation of the perimeter of the construction site is one of the most important security elements. Depending on how long the site will operate, where it is located and what equipment is parked inside it, we can opt for a mesh fence, tin or concrete slabs, barbed wire or perimeter sensors. A good security of the perimeter will discourage thieves and will make the entrance to the site much more difficult.
Put markings to discourage thieves
Thieves do not want to be caught. The higher the chances of being caught, the more careful they are and the lower the chances that they will dare to steal. Therefore, put markings indicating that your site is secure. You can put these information plates both around the site and on the objects that can be stolen.
Hire a security company
A good security service provider will evaluate the site and create a customized security solution, created exactly to meet specific needs. In terms of site security, this can include, depending on many factors, a combination of static and mobile security guards, security and access control at the entrance gates, security fences, installation of security systems and their monitoring and much more. .
