Why You Need Construction Site Security Guards

Construction sites are some of the most vulnerable targets for theft and vandalism because of their size and the high value of the equipment and materials they contain. They are particularly vulnerable after hours when construction personnel are not on site. 

If you are responsible for a construction site, you can’t underestimate the importance of dedicated security guards that can help you protect your most valuable assets. Off Duty Officers specializes in providing highly trained and experienced construction security guards to secure your site after hours or whenever they are needed. Our guards help ensure that your job is completed on time and without any unnecessary financial setbacks associated with theft or vandalism. 

The amount of time and money that goes into any construction job is enormous. Don’t let a burglary or act of vandalism set you back. See how construction site security guards can protect your worksite from threats. 

How Security Guards Can Protect Your Construction Site

Access Control 

Worksites are home to valuable construction materials that if stolen could be resold by thieves for a pretty penny. Security guards can help you manage access to your site and the expensive materials located there from those who are not supposed to be on site. They can also help regulate employees to ensure that they are not stealing tools or other materials from the site. 

Visible Deterrent 

Fences and “No Trespassing” signs can only do so much to protect your site from would-be thieves or vandals. Visible security personnel demonstrate to those who may wish to do harm that you take security seriously and that they are unlikely to get away with their crime. Security guards act as a visible deterrent at any time of day, during and after hours, to prevent the destruction of equipment or theft of valuable materials. 

Emergency Incident Response 

In the unfortunate event that a security issue does occur at your construction site, security guards can act as first responders. They can step up to manage a security situation when it occurs and then communicate with law enforcement or other authorities when they arrive on the scene.

Mobile Patrol 

While security presence at the entrances of your worksite is important, it is also beneficial to use mobile patrols to monitor the site. Mobile patrols can perform scheduled and random routes throughout the construction site to look for suspicious activity and crime. 

Protection of Valuable Assets

Construction sites contain many valuable assets including expensive tools, materials, machines and people. Protecting these assets is your number one priority. Security guards can monitor the location for potential threats to workers, including hazards that could result in injuries and crimes that occur for those working early or late in the day. 

Weather Damage Protection 

Although security guards cannot control the weather, they can act quickly in the event that a weather disaster causes damage to construction material or equipment. They can also monitor the situation and contact the necessary authorities to protect the site and prevent further damage.
