Protecting construction sites from arson, theft, and ensuring the safety of workers and members of the public should be a priority among duty holders.
The risk of having poor security measures on construction sites can result in serious injury or even fatalities to workers or visitors.
There are also other considerations. Serious fires can ravage buildings, injuries can bring litigation cases and theft of expensive equipment can prove a costly headache for firms. Making sure the construction site has the right insurance is essential.
The best way to manage construction site security is to implement an overarching health and safety strategy, undertake risk assessments, and review the processes regularly.
