When it comes to protecting your construction site, equipment, and employees while on the job, it’s essential to take construction site security seriously. Although many construction sites take advantage of security guards, there are other practices you can implement that is cost efficient to help prevent significant crimes or losses.
Although guards patrol the property, they can’t see the entire construction site at any time. They also can’t check some areas on the construction site because it’s not safe. Considering the visibility of a construction site, the suspects can easily watch the security guards. They learn their routines to determine the best time to attack.
Security guards can be inherently unpredictable. Even with the best training, not all security guards will stay vigilant or engage with suspects. In addition, security guards cannot provide as much proof and documentation if an incident occurs. Since they can personally confront any potential threat, onsite security guards could appear to be a superior solution. However, the cost to employ security guard services are high, and you could be liable for their actions as well as their injuries. Additionally, security officers can doze off while on duty, patrol various locations at random times, and only be in one spot at once.
