Our team at Protection Plus Security NQ understand how important it is to protect your construction site, especially when you consider that the losses are rarely reserved for just insurance premiums because costs often mount up due to theft-related delays.
Construction site security is a major concern.
One of the best ways to lower your insurance costs is to use a professional security team such as Protection Plus Security, our teams cover building sites in Townsville and Cairns.
However, there are steps you can take to protect your site.
Here are a few tips to get you started.
More Locks, More Locks, More Locks
It is a pain having to unlock your gates, your inner gates, your toilet doors, your shed doors, the chains around your mixers, and so forth, yet this is an inconvenience for thieves too.
Nobody likes to unlock three locks just to get to the small hand tools, but neither does a thief.
The longer thieves are there, the more uncomfortable they become, and the more likely they are to walk away with less.
Put Up Cameras Large and Small Cameras
The large ones are the deterrents, but a determined thief will wear a balaclava or some sort of disguise.
The smaller ones with lights on, even the fake ones, are the ones that instil paranoia in a thief.
Just the fact there are so many dotted around the place makes thieves uncomfortable and more likely to lose their nerve.
Motion Activated Lights
Some say that you should keep all the lights on in a place because it discourages thieves, and it does, but nothing makes them jumpier than motion activated lights.
They plan their entry, to stick to the corners and unlock the gate to let their truck in, and suddenly there are bright lights everywhere. It messes with their plans, and it makes them feel as if people are going to notice them.
After all, nobody pays attention when a brightly lit yard is always brightly lit, but they do pay attention when the usually dark site suddenly lights up.
Conclusion – Every Little Helps
Adding a few locks here and a few cameras there is not going to keep determined robbers off your site, but every little helps.
Every hindrance, every inconvenience, every delay you can inflict on your thieves will help protect your site.
