Construction sites are easy targets for thieves. Frequent staff turnover and the presence of sub-contractors means construction security requires continuous vigilant surveilance.
The high value of plant, equipment and fuel can lead to quick and easy profit for thieves. In addition a proportion of construction site crime is committed by people working in the industry. This means that great responsibility rests with the site’s construction security guards.

Security guard welfare & safety
Securicall is committed to the welfare and safety of our employees. Construction site security can be hazardous, particularly at night and there are considerable risks of injury to our security officers. To help reduce these risks we employ a sophisticated software system enabling our security guards to complete a ‘check call’ at specified intervals. This computer controlled system ensures the safety of our guards and early notification of any potential problems allowing our Area Supervisors to react accordingly.
