Our Guide To Construction Site Security
Securing a construction site is more than just to guard against theft and vandalism. It is also a requirement of the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS).
This requirement is applicable even if the construction site is unattended or there is currently no activities at the site. Unsecured sites pose a risk to passers-by and the public in general. This is particularly true with children, whose curious nature may lead them to enter the site unnoticed.
To avoid any untoward incidents at the construction site, security must be in place. At Partisan Protective Services, we specialise in construction site security.
Here are our 8 top tips to ensure the construction site is secure.
Risk assessment needs to be conducted at the construction site. This makes it easier to identify high-risk areas at the site. By identifying these high-risk areas, preventative measures can be undertaken to reduce or eliminate the risk.
For areas where armed guards cannot be posted, CCTV installation is an ideal solution.
It’s important to delegate responsibility to individuals to ensure effective security solutions are carried out. Without dedicated team members or private security staff to maintain effective security and safety measures, things can easily slip between the cracks.
At this point, the company has the option of hiring its in-house security personnel or get the services of an armed guard services Sydney-based company. It is important to ensure the responsibilities for securing the site are assigned even before the start of the project. This should be implemented in conjunction with the risk assessment of the site.
This is necessary so everyone at the site would be conscious about securing the construction site. Awareness would include informing security personnel of suspicious individuals in the area. It also involves informing the management of areas where accidents may happen. When everyone at the construction site is aware of security, the project will be finished with little to no delays.
There may be instances when a construction company will get the services of a subcontractor for certain areas in the project. Due to this, it is necessary to supervise them and ensure they are also aware of the security measures in place.
These security measures are implemented not only to protect against theft but also to protect the workers on the site. This would include protecting the subcontractor while they perform their tasks.
While materials and equipment are normally stored at the construction site to ensure they are ready to be used, it is also important to schedule the delivery properly. It would not be advisable to have finishing materials delivered even before the foundation of the building has been erected. In this regard, it is ideal for materials to be delivered just before they are going to be used.
Aside from avoiding theft, it also frees up storage space for materials and equipment that will be used in the first phase of the project.
This is a no-brainer since security requires entry points to be secured when there is no one working at the site.
Blocking entry points should also include preventing access to elevated floors, ladders, and scaffolding. This is one way to prevent unwanted incidents or accidents if a minor gains access to the construction site.
At Partisan Protective Services, our security guards can help design effective access control points and protocols to ensure maximum construction site security and safety.

Construction sites are particularly susceptible to thieves and present a lucrative opportunity when insufficiently protected.
The National Equipment Register reports that construction sites are a naturally low-risk, high-reward target for criminals as very little stolen equipment is ever recovered and it can be difficult to determine if purchased construction equipment/material is stolen.
