Construction Site Vulnerabilities Have Grown

Construction Site Vulnerabilities Have Grown
Though construction is considered an essential business in many areas, the industry has still experienced some significant challenges surrounding security. According to the National Equipment Report, 21% of construction sites experience theft on a weekly basis. Since the COVID-19 crisis, theft rates have soared an estimated 50% as sites have experienced shutdowns, delays, and diminished personnel on the site, as reported by the Construction Enquirer.
The construction industry involves the storage and ongoing use of high-value vehicles, tools, machinery, materials, and fuel. All of these have a high resale value, making construction sites an attractive and profitable target for criminals.

Mobile Security Trailers Address Construction Security Challenges

Now, additionally faced with canceled projects, supply chain disruption, and other short-term issues causing their site to be vulnerable, construction sites are having to reconsider their security. One of the top options to address these vulnerabilities are Mobile Video Surveillance Security Trailers.

The Right Security Solution is Imperative

While theft is always a huge consideration, any unlawful entry on a construction site can lead to the creation of serious safety hazards. For example, equipment vandalism can make them unsafe to use or the theft of fuel can cause dangerous fuel spills.
Criminal activity as the result of unauthorized entry into a construction site poses several overall threats to:
  • Operations
  • Property and materials
  • Life
  • Operational costs
  • Liability

The Problems with Many Common Security Solutions

Many construction sites have a strong dependence on on-site guards. While guards do provide many advantages, the solution also has some security deficits.
  • Security guards are susceptible to:
  • Fatigue
  • Inattentiveness
  • Intimidation
  • Bribery
  • Can only be one place at a time
  • Have a limited view

Traditional Video Surveillance

  • Difficult to cover the entire site at once.
  • Sites are in a constant state of flux with areas needing a greater or lesser degree of monitoring changing as the job progresses
  • Jobs are long-term but temporary and have varying degrees of access to power
  • Traditional video surveillance can be impossible or cost-prohibitive
