Organization and security, or lack thereof, on a jobsite can cause a halt in production or stolen goods – resulting in a loss of time and money.
In fact, according to the National Equipment Register, nearly $1 billion in equipment, materials and other appliances have been stolen from construction sites every year. To make matters worse, less than 25% of the stolen goods are recovered or found.
According to the same study, the most common things to be stolen from a jobsite are:
Tools & supplies: such as power tools, hand tools and fasteners
Material: such as metal or lumber
A loss of any of these items is costly. Aside from adding security guards to your site, which can lead to unwanted added expenses.
How to Secure Your Items
Hire a Security Company
One thing a site owner can do to secure their items is to hire an outside security company to provide onsite guards while no one is there.
Get Onsite Security Boxes
For example, our heavy-duty steel site box now boasts an improved 3-point locking system for added security, so you can lock up all your items at the end of the day.
Our site box is 48” x 30” x 33” and constructed from heavy duty steel with a tough industrial powder coating finish. The lid is fitted with gas stays for less user fatigue, and the site box can be fitted with castors for simple movement across the site.
Install Security Cameras
Security cameras are a great way to add a sense of security to your site. When positioned well, you’ll be able to keep an eye on your site. However, security cameras do not stop a theft from happening, but they can help identify the thief and help get your items back.
