Top Tips for Construction Site Security this Holiday Season

The holiday season presents criminals with a number of opportunities when it comes to construction sites. It's the time of year with the least natural light, and there will be additional days where your sites are completely unmanned.

Planning your security provisions should be one of your highest priorities right now, crimes rates peak around the holiday season and nothing could be worse than an unwanted intrusion onto your sites that delays work and puts a dampener on the festive spirit.  

At WCCTV, we provide managed security cameras for construction site security, and of course we believe surveillance systems are the most powerful tools available when it comes to keeping your sites safe - especially when they're being watched by our expert monitoring partners.

It's not just theft WCCTV's security cameras can help prevent, during the Christmas period your sites could be vulnerable to both arson attacks and damage caused by bad weather conditions. WCCTV's security cameras utilize 4G LTE connectivity, meaning you can access the live and recorded video at any time from any device - remotely monitoring what's happening on site.

But there are many basic steps you can take too, here's our top ten recommendations for keeping your construction sites safe this holiday season:

  1. Make sure all gates and entrance points are securely locked

  2. Place fencing around the perimeter of your site if possible, and make sure there are no weak points or vulnerabilities 

  3. Lock away any valuable tools and machinery where possible. This will reduce the temptation from opportunist thieves

  4. Ensure that larger machinery that can't be locked away is fully immobilised, and that any keys are not stored on-site

  5. Remove any waste or flammable materials to help prevent arson attacks

  6. Check that any temporary fixtures, materials or structures are fully secured and not likely to be damaged or blown over by bad weather

  7. Consider lighting solutions during the longer nights

  8. Remove ladders and prevent any access to scaffolding and raised platforms

  9. Install surveillance cameras or alarms, or better still get a solution that gives you both

  10. If you do invest in security cameras, display signage to let people know your sites are being watched
