Static security at building sites

Building site security is complex. No two sites are the same, and each will present different security challenges that will need to be overcome to ensure successful construction. Whether it’s securing a perimeter or looking after expensive plant or materials, it’s essential to make sure your site is secure.

The challenges of site security 

Having an insecure construction site poses numerous risks. Whether it’s theft, damage, or safety, not having adequate security services can have a considerable price. 

One of the most obvious is from theft. Losing equipment or materials from a site can be incredibly costly. It can also have a big impact on the work. Just one missing piece of equipment can delay the whole site if it’s linked to a project dependency. The cost might not just be the equipment, but the cost of workers standing around unused, and even contract defaults.

Security can also have safety implications. If your site is insecure and trespassers can access it easily, there is the risk of vandalism. Nearly half of all building site fires are deliberately set by arsonists. This risks damaging buildings and equipment, leaving the site unsafe for workers; trespassers, sadly, tend not to have a high regard for health and safety. There is also the risk of injury or worse to trespassers themselves. Either way, there is a liability risk for the site operation if they have not implemented appropriate security measures.

Using Blue Line Operations security service can help you meet your security requirements.

Physical security is obviously important. Making sure that unauthorised entry is as difficult as possible is important, but it’s also important to make sure that that right people can get access, but having controlled entry and exit points, so you always know who is on-site.

They can also help manage equipment, for example providing a key-holding service, making sure that equipment and vehicles are secure when not in use, and it’s clear who is responsible when they are being used.
