Secure your site over Christmas

December 09, 2019

It's that time of year when we all take a little break to recharge and de-stress. Unfortunately instead of being a joyous time of giving there are a number of people who believe it's a time for taking.

Vandalism and theft is a major problem over this time especially with near completed builds. Ensuring the building site is well secured and even patrolled on a regular basis could be the difference between a joyful Christmas and a stressful one. Not only for the builder but for the client as well.

Other options and safety measures can include:

  • Video surveillance equipment – notices that the premises is under video surveillance 24/7 posted on the temp fence
  • Temp fencing secured over opening i.e. garage
  • Star pickets and bunting around any trenches
  • Where applicable install second hand doors and plywood attached as in cyclone prevention techniques
  • Preferably fit plywood sheets to all glass areas
  • Tarpaulins to cover unfinished roofs in case of inclement weather.
  • Removal of any excess materials from site- plumbing, timber, windows, etc
  • Importantly leave your address and a contact number in case of emergencies with the local police
