Experts in the construction industry have stressed the importance
of building site security,
as they believe that a secure site is a safe site. In addition to safety and security becoming
increasingly important due to the news of intruders accessing and vandalising
sites, the two aspects are becoming ever more intertwined.
Its been reported that there are more occurrences of people breaking into construction sites, setting fire to equipment and resources, stealing building materials and vandalising the site than ever before. If someone is injured, or even killed on your construction site after breaking into it, your business may face some serious consequences and repercussions- including hefty fines and your company being shut down.
These can be the result of not having the right site security measures in place, which could also seriously delay the completion date of the project and damage your company’s reputation. Also some insurance companies do not issue insurance payouts if they believe the correct construction security equipment and systems have not been implemented and installed. If this happened to your company, it could result in a serious loss of monetry funds- which could be the difference in your company making a profit and it not.
In addition to this, Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are also tightening up on the construction site security that they require, making it increasingly important to thoroughly think through your current construction site security systems.
If your company does not meet the required health and safety requirements, you may face large fines, or be at risk of HSE shutting your construction site down if they believed it unsafe to operate. It’s believed that these strict regulations will within the next few years be enforced and become obligatory.
Therefore, site security is not just about keeping the site and its contents itself safe- it also involves ensuring that no accidents or serious incidents happen outside of working hours.
Investing in the right security systems, such as site CCTV and scaffold alarms can help you to combine security and safety in an efficient and cost effective way. Up to date security systems are no longer an option if you want to safeguard your business’s finances as well as your reputation.
