How to Perform a Security Risk Assessment

Construction sites remain an easy target for opportunistic thieves, particularly as the price of key materials continues to rise. 

Recently released statistics from the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) and the National Equipment Register (NER) estimate the cost of construction site crime to be between $300m and $1b annually.

Despite growing crime rates, site owners and construction project managers are leaving themselves vulnerable by failing to take adequate security precautions.

The security of your job site should be a key priority, and understanding the likely risks you face is the first step to enhancing the overall security profile. Below, WCCTV presents its free-to-download Security Risk Assessment template.

Your risk assessment should cover all the potential threats and hazards that could impact your construction site assess their likelihood and the impact on your project should they occur.
