Why Construction Site Security is Important

Construction sites are expensive work areas that are, unfortunately, very vulnerable to many types of problems. As they are a work in progress, aside from the building or buildings or whatever is being constructed, expensive equipment and valuable materials are kept on site. The tools, equipment, machinery and materials on a construction site alone can be worth many thousands or even millions of dollars, depending on the size of the construction project itself. A site can also be under construction for many weeks, months or years, leaving all that valuable equipment, the site itself and the property open to a host of potential disasters.
Construction sites are vulnerable to costly damage from:
- Natural disasters
- Acts of God
- Water damage
- Wind damage
For these reasons and a host of others, 24/7 construction site security is extremely important to anyone involved in the construction process, the contractor, the property owner, even people who work on the site or live by the site. Armed security and skilled, experienced construction site security cannot only protect all of the property that is on site, but they can identify potential problems that may cause an issue or address any issue that arises at any time of the day.
While construction site security guards cannot prevent natural disasters or acts of God, they will be on site to minimize damage and help protect and secure the property immediately. A skilled construction site security team CAN prevent theft, stop vandals, save property damage, and even prevent or quickly address calamities such as fires if they are trained in fire security. They can certainly find hidden issues in dark corners of large sites when policing the grounds, and can monitor the site with surveillance equipment at ALL times, even potentially preventing costly and dangerous construction accidents, or accidents that occur when children or vagrants or other neighbors wander onto an unattended site.
