According to the National Equipment Register, construction site theft costs the construction industry up to $1 billion a year. Implementing a security plan for your construction site is essential. A thorough plan includes onsite security guards and real-time surveillance cameras.

Site Theft. Construction sites have always been attractive targets for thieves for several reasons.

  • Expensive materials and equipment like tools, copper, steel and now lumber left in the open
  • Sites typically are unattended overnight with poor lighting
  • Constant activity makes it difficult to track people and inventory
  • High demand for stolen construction-related goods that can be easily resold

Create and Implement A Security Plan. A construction site security plan should include:

  • A central checkpoint for all incoming and outgoing vehicles
  • A secure location where equipment and materials can be stored overnight
  • 24/7 security camera surveillance with live feeds to offsite security personnel
  • Onsite security guards to man the checkpoint, patrol the perimeter and provide overnight security
  • Regular (unannounced) site inspections to check equipment and materials inventory
  • Employee background checks

While requiring extra resources upfront, the savings from preventing theft and related construction delays can be substantial.
