Construction sites are common targets for thieves because they often contain high-value tools and plant equipment which can be accessed more easily than you may think.
If your construction site is unmanned or does not have sufficient security in place out of normal working hours, opportunist thieves could be allured by the quick profit they could make without being spotted. Even when workers are on site, not having the right security and access control in place could mean that anyone could wander in. This not only leaves you vulnerable to theft but also health and safety incidents which you may be liable for.
The threat of malicious damage or arson are also primary security concerns for construction sites, causing contractors and tradesmen to lose their valuable assets and in some cases a substantial amount of money.
