Security Basics: Signage, Fences and Locks, and Lighting
At the most basic level, the first step you should take toward protecting your assets is to ensure that your site is equipped with adequate signage indicating the site is private property and that trespassing is forbidden.
In addition, fences that surround a construction site are relatively inexpensive and can offer a clear indication to any outsiders that the area is strictly off limits. Unfortunately, fences offer little protection in the way of actual security. They can be easily cut, climbed over, and breached through other ways. However, they do create an obstacle between your assets and a potential thief.
The final basic security measure you should be implementing is adequate lighting. Some people may be afraid of the dark, but not thieves. They prefer to work in the dark because it offers protection for their thievery. Lighting has a preventative effect of thinking that the site is occupied, as well as increases the risk that an intruder will be seen. If you cannot afford to light the entire worksite, motion sensor lights can also have a secure effect and require less overhead.
