Our security experts have narrowed down the top three areas you should consider when setting up your security system on your job site.

Where should you set up Surveillance Cameras on a Construction Site?

Construction sites are constantly evolving environments, with layouts changing almost daily. From a security perspective, any new developments on your site can introduce new areas of vulnerability and security risks.

This makes determining the best place to install surveillance cameras incredibly difficult.

Where should surveillance cameras be placed to ensure optimum security on your construction site?

Despite this confusion, certain areas should never be without surveillance. Below, our experts have narrowed down the top three areas to consider when setting up your security system on your job site.

Speak to us about installing Security Cameras on your Construction Site

Storage Facilities and Laydown Areas

The areas where you store valuable tools and materials at the end of each day are a natural attraction for thieves.

Installing a highly visible surveillance camera presence in these areas will help deter theft. Crime is much less likely to occur when people know someone is watching.

A surveillance unit capable of voice-down alerts will also allow you to issue a live audio challenge to intruders, increasing the effectiveness of your deterrent.

Dark and Secluded Areas

Many construction job sites span large areas, making it impossible to have eyes on every part of the site if you rely solely on security guards.

Surveillance cameras allow you to view multiple sections of your site at once.

Additionally, utilizing a Mobile Solar Surveillance Trailer or mounting a high-up camera can give you views that would otherwise be impossible for an on-the-ground security team.

For areas with little or no light, having an infrared camera will give you a clear view of what is happening there without impacting image quality.

Unloading Stations

Having cargo dropped off at a specific location constantly and a predictable schedule can result in unloading stations becoming a high target for criminals.

The FBI estimates that the cost of cargo theft in the USA is between $15 billion and $30 billion each year and that 20% of the stolen cargo is never recovered, leading to project deals and unexpected costs.

By installing surveillance cameras in unloading stations, you are reducing the risk of incidents occurring, and if they do occur, you'll be able to act immediately.

Lastly, having security cameras means you'll have access to evidential footage of any incidents, and this footage can assist with recovering any losses.

Having a foolproof security plan for your construction site can take some time, but the time you spend now securing your site can save you from costly incidents in the future.
