Step 1: Mobile construction site security
Utilising the proper security measures
You can effectively keep undesired people out of your construction site if you use the proper security measures. Every phase of the construction project is different and as such, every phase requires a different kind of security. While fencing is important during the foundation phase, the final phase – during which expensive materials are used – requires more extensive security measures, such as anti-lift security or access gates with extra security.
You can determine for yourself the number of security measures that you must utilise by asking yourself a few questions, such as, Does the construction location entail additional security risks? Are there a lot of people who need access to my construction site? Are we working with expensive products? If you answered yes to most of these questions, the resources below can help you to increase the security on your construction site:
Fencing to enclose the construction site
Fencing allows you to demarcate the construction site and ensure that undesired persons do not have any access to it. Installing fencing is necessary for every type of construction project and is the basis upon which you can add on other security measures. Special anti-climb fences help you to effectively increase the security of your construction site and keep undesired people out. The anti-climb fences have extra-small wire mesh, which makes it impossible to climb the fences.
Mechanical accessories for extra security
You can use mechanical accessories to strengthen your fencing and increase your security. Turn your fencing into a connected enclosure using fencing clamps that are fitted with locks that can only be opened using a special spanner. This way, the supervisor does not have to check the fencing every day and only has to supervise the transfer of the key. Anti-lift security ensures that the fence cannot be lifted out of the foundation blocks. A lock bracket ensures that the fences are also completely locked outside of working hours. This way, your fencing truly contributes to the security of the construction site.
Good fencing must keep undesired people out. However, the right people must be able to access the construction site. You can create secured access for people using a walk-in gate or turnstile; however, a turnstile will provide you with optimal security. You can use a swing or sliding gate for regulating vehicle access. This way, you maintain control over who has access to the construction site and you easily keep undesired people out of your site.
