It is very well-known that construction sites are a popular target for criminals. It is quite
vulnerable to criminal activities like theft and vandalism. As per a recent report released
by National Insurance Crime Bureau and National Equipment Register, U.S sees losses
from construction equipment that estimates $300 million to $1 billion every year.
According to National Fire Protection Association, construction sites face property
damages of around $300 million due to fires annually. These numbers are enough to tell
the importance of security officers on a construction site. Here are the top reasons why
you need to place experienced construction security guards.
Construction sites are stored with expensive materials, specialized machinery, and
cutting-edge tools which easily attract criminals to the property. It is not possible to carry
those items to a safer place at the end of every working day. So, they are kept at the
construction premises, where they are vulnerable to theft. Even basic elements such as
coppers could get stolen and sold in the market at a fair price.
Security officers’ one of the biggest challenges is to control unauthorized access in the
construction site. Hundreds of people enter and exit construction sites all day including
engineers, workers, architects, and many other individuals. It is the security officers’
responsibility to keep track of every individual on the premises.
Other than keeping the construction site safe, security officers also ensure the safety of
every person on the premises. In case of an accident, they can provide first aid and
other life-saving assistance to those who are hurt on the construction site. Before
arriving first responders, it is their responsibility to handle the situation. Vandalism is a
big problem for every construction site. Broken windows, graffiti, destruction is a
common example of vandalism. Construction companies lose a hefty number of items
due to vandalism. Se
