SECURE BY DESIGN - Construction Site Security Guide

SECURE BY DESIGN - CONSTRUCTION SITE SECURITY GUIDE

Construction sites often suffer from theft, criminal damage, arson and anti-social behaviour, all of which can have a major impact on completion dates and overall development costs. This guide is designed to be risk commensurate and provides advice on how to secure the site from the moment the hoarding goes up until the moment the development is handed over to the client or end user.

The advice is based on proven crime prevention principles that are known to reduce criminal opportunity by creating safer, more secure and sustainable environments. It applies to all construction sites regardless of their size and is intended for all staff including security personnel.

ERA Guide

The Guidance for Best Practices to Prevent Equipment Theft

With the following list of practices the ERA provides effective ways to prevent theft of your equipment. Equipment theft is a growing problem across Europe with an estimated annual cost of 1.5 billion Euro to the rental, construction and agricultural industries.

  • For the equipment rental industry alone, ERA estimates the value of stolen equipment to exceed 500 million Euro per annum.
  • This figure includes around 30,000 units of heavy equipment (3 tonnes and above) and estimated figures of 300,000 units below 3 tonnes.
  • The rate of recovery of stolen equipment varies widely depending on the country, and the security counter measures deployed. The recovery rate is much lower for equipment when compared to the recovery rate for other vehicles, for example cars.

The ERA recommends that you follow the practices and advice outlined within this document to protect your equipment in the best possible way.
