Some may find construction sites intriguing and despite the “No Trespassing” signs all over the place, and even if they know that these sites pose a safety risk, they ignore them and go in anyway. Entering a construction site whether there is an active construction or not, is very dangerous. There might be ditches, falling objects or supply lines and wires that unauthorized persons may not be aware of. That is why having security guards patrol the area is very important. They help make sure that the area is clear of trespassers and make sure no accidents will happen. Also, not only that construction sites are dangerous for the general public, it is also a venue for theft. The presence of these security personnel in construction sites not only involves protecting valuable items but also they protect the workers and the general public alike from potential dangers and threats.
Most common problem with construction sites are trespassers and thieves. These trespassers violate the privacy of these sites by vandalizing buildings and even destroying heavy equipment machineries. With these trespassers lurking about, it is crucial that you hire construction site security guards to ensure that your buildings and/or machineries are well protected.
Having a construction site security guard onsite – especially those that have undergone extensive skills training, can be very helpful in case of natural disasters. While it is true that they cannot prevent or stop natural disasters but they are trained to execute evacuation protocols and the dos and don’ts during disasters like earthquakes, etc. In addition to that, security guards are trained and are aware of the hazard reporting procedures. With this being said, accidents and any hazards in the workplace can be acted upon right away to avoid further injury and damage to the workers as well as the site itself.
Although construction sites already have fences built around it, it is important that that every entrance and exit points are manned by security guards. This is to ensure that only authorized personnel are allowed inside. The security guards would also be taking turns in patrolling the area making sure that no unauthorized personnel is able to enter the area specially during night time.
Aside from physically surveying and monitoring the area, it is also necessary to check CCTV feeds to make sure that you have covered checking the whole area. This is to ensure that every corner and every angle in the site has been looked into and that there were no lapses in their security measures and that everyone has been kept safe and sound.
Security guards have the responsibility of creating a security report on a daily basis. The report may contain the things they observed during the course of the day or any incidents that happened. These reports may not always seem relevant but could be very helpful for any questions in the future.
