The Inflation of Building Materials vs. Jobsite Security

Is your jobsite security system ready for what’s coming?

Jobsite work is a tough business, and you deserve the opportunity to clock out and head home with peace of mind every day. However, with the cost of building supplies surging more than 400% in recent months, the risk of jobsite theft may keep you awake worrying about your equipment and your project.

Luckily, you can take full control of your jobsite security and stop theft before it occurs with 24/7 security solutions from the team at EyeSite Surveillance.Jobsite Security

Why Jobsites Are a Prime Target

Aside from rising supply costs, opportunistic thieves target jobsites for several reasons. In many cases, jobsites don’t have any security measures.

Some crews erect temporary fences or install warning signs, but these efforts do very little when it comes to deterring a determined thief.

Further, construction crews often walk away from their daily posts, leaving all equipment exposed when it’s time to leave for the night.

As a result, thieves enter the dark, silent property and take their pick of materials to use or sell, such as:

  • Copper
  • Tools
  • Lumber
  • Appliances
  • Heavy equipment

Even if you don’t lose any valuable goods, you may return the following day to find broken glass, spray paint, and other signs of vandalism. While vandalism typically costs less than equipment or material theft, you’ll have to spend time cleaning your equipment, repairing broken windows, and picking up after your unwanted guests instead of working on the project.

Safeguarding Your Business with Jobsite Security

Whether the result of an oversight or budgetary restrictions, many construction companies neglect their jobsite security until it’s too late. Even a minor oversight could result in thousands of dollars in losses — or even potential lawsuits if an intruder sustains an injury on your jobsite.

Fortunately, you can help deter thieves from interfering with your project and derailing your budget by investing in a comprehensive jobsite security system. Advanced jobsite security technology works alongside low-tech measures like adequate fencing, lighting, and locked gates to keep your valuables protected at all times.

Integrative jobsite protection systems fill in critical gaps in your security plan. At EyeSite Surveillance, we know that your construction site needs more than fences and warning signs. You need top-of-the-line technology combined with highly trained, experienced remote security professionals and 24/7 monitoring.

We crafted our jobsite security systems to work on four levels to protect your crew, your equipment, and your construction site:

1. Deterrence: By placing visible video cameras, lighting, and other security measures around your property, you can greatly reduce and prevent theft. In fact, our data shows that our Mobile Surveillance Units cut jobsite crime by 90% or more.
2. Detection: If a thief braves the video cameras and enters the jobsite, an advanced security system will alert you as soon as they have crossed the perimeter.
3. Assessment: Cutting-edge video surveillance technology will provide you with the footage and analytics you need to assess the breach and make your next move.
4. Apprehension: Finally, your security Surveillance system can help bring a thief to justice. At EyeSite, we’ve helped bring more than 80 criminals to justice per year since 2009.
