3 Reasons why construction sites require more security than any other type of site
#1: Liability, if a trespasser, often teenagers and or intoxicated vagrants enter your site, and injure themselves or worse, the owner/head contractor of the site is held liable.
#2: Crime, construction sites are full of things that are worthwhile to steal, power tools, trailers , trucks, heavy equipment, generators, copper, cables, motors, sensors and other materials are all easy to sell for quick money on the black market and often untraceable once removed from site.
#3: Work Disruptions are costly; to have workers without equipment or materials to build with can cost a great deal of money and time to replace.
