Building developers and construction staff take a festive break, but thieves don’t!


London, UK,  UK local security companies on standby to provide additional security to protect building and construction sites over the festive season


“The Construction Site Security directory provides building and refurbishment site developers with a ready access to local security companies specializing in construction site security.  The festive season is especially attractive to thieves so our free service is invaluable in protecting property and assets.”    Richard John.


Over the Christmas and New Year many building and construction development sites are left unattended for many days and nights. Whilst construction workers enjoy a well-earned break, thieves and vandals do not. They are as active as ever – sometimes more so because they know there are fewer people around and Police resources are fully stretched.


Security Companies, whose insurance details are checked as part of the enrolment process to get listed by the UK Construction Site Security Directory, can assist construction site managers by providing 24 hour manned guarding staff, night watchmen and mobile security patrols.


Local security companies also provide key holder services and intruder alarm response. This is a real issue for employers as they need to reflect on whether or not putting their staff into harm’s way by asking them to attend alarm activations complies with their lone working policies. In addition, the very real possibility exists that members of staff might be called out during or after a period of celebration where they might have enjoyed some alcohol within the last twelve hours.


To save construction site managers and Project Managers having to scour their local telephone directory or the Internet to find a local security company, the Construction Site Security Directory exists as a free on-line resource.  A simple form on the website or a telephone call will put them in contact with a company specializing in construction site security, many of whom hold the SafeContractor award for health and safety management on building sites.
