The National Insurance Crime Bureau estimates that it cost up to $1 billion a year in commercial and heavy equipment theft, and the number only seems to increase. Law enforcement typically recovers less than a quarter of the items stolen.
When construction equipment and other items are stolen, it slows the construction project down and results in a loss of money.
This also affects insurance policies and can result in penalties. The site management is also responsible for any people who trespass into the construction zone.
However, unarmed construction security guards can help you feel at ease that your equipment and yard are safe from theft and other potential risks. It’s peace of mind for you, the employees, and the investors.
How can our Building Security Services professionals help construction companies?
Construction security guards must have both the physical and psychological stamina to do the job.
They also need to go through OSHA training that helps them protect the health and safety of those in the workplace and area community. They also need to be licensed and qualified and go through the necessary training to be certified.
Building Security Services uses experienced security guards, veterans, and former law enforcement for their clients.
With a security guard on site all hours of the day and night, you can feel secure that your equipment is safe, and there are no construction-related accidents to the general public.
A security guard can help:
Our guards must remain alert and observational to help you find, reduce, and eliminate the risks to one’s health and safety.
Pre-work surveys are conducted to look for possible problems.
However, it’s inconceivable to find all risks such as exposure to asbestos, toxins, airborne filters, moving objects, unintended collapses, poorly lit areas, no beepers on moving vehicles and electrocution hazards without some outside help.
Since construction workers are faced with all levels of stress, it can cause both mental and physical overload.
We work to decrease the overload to reduce the risk of accidents occurred with mental burn-out and exhaustion.
You may do site surveys before the work starts to identify potential issues as well as conduct safety meetings or toolbox talks.
You may offer regular workday breaks and have your employees go through a physical and mental health evaluation to ensure their safety.
A security guard is still a necessary part of your construction site for a variety of reasons. Contact BSS today if you’re looking for construction security for your site – we’ll be glad to help.
