When you manage or own a construction company, you are often using high-quality equipment and valuable materials. It is important to make sure that you are taking the necessary precautions to keep your equipment and materials safe.
Job sites are a popular target for criminals because they are able to sneak into the construction area to grab machinery and materials to resell for cash. According to the FBI, the most common form of property crime is larceny and theft.
So how can you increase your construction site’s security to make sure your materials and equipment are safe when your workers have gone home for the day? Here are a few key security methods you can use to protect your job site.
Job Site Checklists
Most construction managers or owners have a pre-job site checklist and post-job site checklist established to ensure all materials and equipment are accounted for. However, if you are looking to increase the security of your job site, it is a good idea to conduct job site checklists during the construction process.
Approximately 75% of employees have stolen at least once from their employer. With regular checklists, you not only know what was lost but when during the job the material or equipment was lost. Regular checklists enable you to stay on top of your equipment while making it more difficult for equipment to “spontaneously” go missing.
Improve Your Lighting
You may not think much about your construction site’s lighting because you’re not actually working during the night. However, quality lighting is essential for keeping criminals at bay. Thieves are less likely to steal when they know they can be easily spotted, and lighting also makes it easier to identify their faces on security cameras.
