Following a theft from a construction site
at the beginning of the year, one construction site owner has actively taken steps
to prevent this from happening again at this site, and other construction sites
throughout the surrounding area.
He is taking precautions through investigating the various construction security services which are currently available to utilise such as site CCTV and other types of electronic construction site security systems. The CCTV cameras will be added to the already basic security measures which are currently in place. The security measures which can currently be found on the site include security fencing surrounding the perimeter of the site, the implementation of having a clean site at all times, and that all valuables are always put away behind locks at the end of the day. The company already has site CCTV installed at another construction site in the area which recorded a theft which took place during the early hours of the morning.
After the break-in took place the construction company had to pay $2,000 due to the theft of the copper wiring which was stolen from the site. The thieves also caused a significant amount of hydro damage after they ripped out one of the sites temporary power lines.
Though the company usually reports all thefts to the authorities, they consequently had to pay out to cover the costs of the damage caused by the thieves. Though many people believe that insurance policies cover them will in the event of this type of damage happening, in fact many insurers do not pay out for damage if the appropriate security measures- such as site security- are not in place.
In addition to the copper located on the site the thieves also stole a range of other commodities too- including 72 steel brackets and other expensive tools and equipment. They also cut a number of large power cables to the machinery in order to obtain a supply of copper wire.
