The idea of a trespasser or transients walking onto your construction site, without anyone questioning his or her presence, is alarming, unsafe, and a liability. This is a reality of project managers at most construction sites. Securing your project against risk, liability, and theft should be the number one priority of all security plans. With a step by step approach, a competent security team can develop a system that takes into account all the different aspects of construction site security:
STEP 1: Security Plan.
A security plan is developed that highlights the vulnerabilities of the site and the local region. All managerial staff and contractors are informed about the specifics of the security plan. The plan is routinely reviewed, and enhanced to accommodate any new information or events.
STEP 2: Post Orders.
Post orders take the guidelines, responsibilities, and objective of the security plan and develop a systematic approach for implementation.
STEP 3: Security Guards.
Secure Guard Security officers provide the commanding presence that is needed to deter most crimes. Our security officers are thoroughly trained weeks in advance to service. All guards are equipped with cell phones and SecureTrack, allowing them to instantly respond to any emergencies.
STEP 4: Secure Track Guard Tracking.
Secure Guards’ Secure Track is an integrated guard management system for monitoring, reporting and managing your security operations in Southern California. Guards can do patrol tours, report incidents, and activities in real time. Managers and clients can monitor, review, and respond instantly from their browsers or smartphone. With full knowledge of the facility’s layout, our field supervisors develop patrol routes and rounds; maximizing the efficiency of the security guard.
STEP 5: Oversight & Supervision.
Our Operations Manager and Supervisor take in all the information and make sure the solution to your security needs are properly implemented and most importantly, maintained.
Every one of these construction sites contains costly materials, equipment, and other assets on site, which raise the demand for security. Construction sites are vulnerable to crimes like theft and arson, especially during nights when nobody is around. The equipment, material, and machinery used on construction sites are valuable and no developer can afford to lose them in the middle of construction. Apart from crimes, accidents occurring at construction sites may cause serious injuries and casualties, forcing firms to pay hefty compensations if need be.
These are just some of the construction security risks that face general contractors for each site they work on. By choosing a reliable construction site security company like Secure Guard, you can minimize and mitigate the potential risk to your site.
