Fences, Secured Entry Gate, and Lock Systems

The most basic step of construction site prevention is to install fences with stable, strong lock system. This is essential as it is the primary entrance to the construction site that needs protection and alertness. Installation of fences is cost effective and it also alerts an intruder that the site is secured and is restricted or under inspection.

A secure lock system is not only mandatory for fences and construction site gates. It is important to keep all your valuable site machinery and equipment locked away in a secured placed for additional security.

Alarm Systems

Alarms aren’t just for fire or medical emergencies on site. You must install an alarm system that immediately notifies the nearest police department. Till the time they arrive, surrounding people might also be alarmed with the sound and might come to help. The alarm sound might also alert the intruders or robbers and compel them to leave the robbed material behind and just sprint away.

Video Surveillance Systems

Video monitoring is the most effective way to safeguard any construction site on a 24/7 basis. These systems record all the on-site and surrounding happenings. The video recordings are live and don’t miss a single incident. These recorded footages can be used as a legit proof against an intruder or a thief during a construction site security issue.

Video Monitoring Services for Construction Sites

If you are facing constant hazards of theft at your construction site, then you should invest in specialized security and surveillance facilities. These may include 24/7 video monitoring, alarm response security guards, and mobile patrolling security guards for the complete safety of your construction locations.

4 top benefits of video monitoring services for your construction sites:

Achieving Safer Work Sites

It’s not easy for companies to gather concrete evidence about construction site mishaps and robberies in the absence of an online surveillance system. Some employees might forget details, while others could refuse to answer your questions because they don’t want to report an actual incident. Mistakes do happen even if you have a low-risk construction site.

Installing security cameras on top of 25-foot poles which can live-stream events happening in 360 degrees, will help you record every incident. When you have everything documented, you can always go back and check your surveillance record for potential theft in case any discrepancies arise at the time of inventory.

Facing Fewer Numbers Of Lawsuits

Another significant advantage of live surveillance systems is that you’re less vulnerable to facing lawsuits. These onsite security cameras can be your best temporary solution to monitor everything happening at your construction site in real-time. They also help you negate any potential lawsuit from disgruntled employees by proving there was no onsite accident.

Having Lower Insurance Costs

Organizations with 24/7 security cameras can ask for lower insurance rates from their insurance company. Ask your insurance provider if they need you to install a certain kind of camera to get a discount. Installing high-quality recording NVR cameras will provide you with consistent coverage and monitoring of your construction locations.

That’s why remote surveillance cameras can be an excellent choice for your construction site, considering that you might get a reduction in your insurance premiums.

Efficient Record Keeping

Installing surveillance cameras at your construction location can help you keep track of when your staff members come and go and also ensure that they are adhering to their shift timings properly. You can also make sure that no extra individuals are entering and leaving your property.

On-Site Security Guards

Just installing artificial security systems isn’t enough for construction site security. You cannot skip having on-site security guards as they are present there physically, alerting any intruder before trespassing the premises. Hiring professional security guards for your site is essential as they are trained and equipped to handle such emergencies.

Mobile Patrol Systems

Having a mobile patrol system to enhance your site’s security works well for the entire neighborhood. Unlike guards who are present 24/7 on your property, mobile patrols inspect your site from time to time to check for theft or other security issues. This bars an intruder from entering the construction site as the mobile patrol visits are not fixed.

In the case of heavily-crowded sites, it’s essential to continually monitor and record the actions of your employees through 24/7 video monitoring. It also protects your business operations and your workers onsite through efficient record keeping of every event.
