Construction sites can be an attractive target for theft and vandalism. In fact, each year nearly $50 million in equipment is stolen from Canadian construction sites. As such, security should be a top priority for any site manager.
At Blackbird Security, we believe that having uniformed security and mobile patrol services onsite can provide numerous benefits to both the construction site – and its workers. Let’s look at three of the most important reasons why adding a professional security presence is essential for construction sites.
Safety, First & Foremost
The primary goal of having professional security staff onsite is to ensure the safety of all workers and visitors. Construction site security can deter potential intruders from entering the area, and quickly respond in case of an emergency. When it comes to construction site safety, the team at Blackbird Security is trained in how to handle various situations that may arise, such as crowd control or medical emergencies. Additionally, we can offer mobile patrol services and monitor CCTV footage to keep everyone safe and secure while onsite.
Protection Against Theft & Vandalism
Construction sites often contain valuable materials that are prone to theft if not properly secured. That’s why Blackbird Security personnel have the knowledge and expertise needed to protect these materials from thieves. We can use preventative measures such as alarms, gate control, and cameras to deter potential criminals from attempting to steal materials or vandalise equipment. Additionally, uniformed security can provide mobile patrol services throughout the premises which helps make sure everything is always safe and secure.
24/7 Mobile Patrol
With 24/7 monitoring services, construction sites can become more secure than ever before, with any suspicious activity being quickly identified. This added layer of protection also brings peace of mind to construction employees, ensuring they work in a safe and secure environment. Furthermore, video surveillance of construction sites can help correct errors and improve the efficiency of project completions; this is how investing in professional construction site security can contribute to the successful execution of construction projects.
Enforcement of Access & Regulations
The team at Blackbird Security is trained to enforce rules and regulations to create a safe working environment on construction sites. This includes enforcing access and entry restrictions, perimeter patrols, and environmental threat assessments. We also keep track of those who enter and exit the site through real time tracking, report writing, and keyholding duties. By always keeping unauthorised visitors offsite through mobile patrol security, this ensures that everyone is accounted for day-to-day.
