Intruder detection and theft deterrents
Due to the temporary and open nature of working on construction sites, installing methods to detect and deter intruders might seem an unmanageable task and a financial strain. An increasing amount of affordable tools for security are becoming available however, often with thanks to technological advances and developments in manufacturing processes.
Intruder alarms and security lighting can significantly reduce the amount of time a trespasser is comfortable on the site. To suit the needs of construction sites, temporary or portable devices are available, including some designed for scaffolding to deter unauthorised use.
Other theft prevention measures, such as tracking devices and security marking, have the potential to make recovering stolen items easier, thus deterring thieves who fear being tracked down.
Traditional methods like security lighting can still be a great way of putting off anyone considering trespass and, where there is a particularly high risk of theft taking place, CCTV and on-site security personnel can prove worth the cost.
