Each year the construction industry in the UK is victim to approximately £800 million of losses thanks to vandalism and theft, according to a report from insurers Allianz Cornhill.

 

Their study shows that these huge losses are derived mostly from the costs of hiring replacement items, replacing those same items, business lost as a result, and increases in premiums from insurance companies.

 

Theft - The Chartered Institute of Building's 2016 study on Crime in the Construction Industry reports that, of the 1,100 professionals surveyed from the construction sector, 21% had suffered theft the week they were surveyed. If that wasn't bad enough, a massive 92% reported that they suffered from theft on an annual basis, with many experiencing it on a weekly or monthly basis!

 

Vandalism - Reported in the same CIOB study, 91% or participants surveyed stated that they had been the victims of vandalism. Fences and locks may put off the casual intruder, but to deter hardened criminals and prevent serious equipment damage, a CCTV Tower is essential.

Assessment - We assess each new site ourselves so that we can ensure we provide effective cover from our point of view.

 

Implementation - One of our Area Service Managers will visit you, discuss your particular concerns, and agree on a route and schedule for the security guards to patrol. Together you will identify set landmarks en route which our officers will photograph as they patrol to provide up to date imagery of the state of your site as they go.

 

Reporting - We document every step of our construction security guards' route and report daily on our findings and observations.

Prime Secure is one of the UK's most accredited security companies, holding some of the most prestigious accreditations available.

 

Our security guards are licensed with the SIA, vetted to British Standard BS 7858 and checked against the DBS database.

 

Our security guards operate under BS 7499 which is specific to security guards.

The first port of call for any manned guarding contract on a construction project is for one of our experienced security team to visit and properly assess your site then produce a detailed report from which a bespoke, site-specific set of assignment instructions is produced for our security guards.

Our security guards will meticulously record all data as they perform agreed and site-specific assignments. Any potential incidents or issues are logged in the appropriate record book and time-stamped.

Prime Secure takes quality of service seriously. You can read more about how we look after our staff's welfare here, and we are just as meticulous with our supervision.

 

We perform unannounced site visits regularly to ensure the service you receive meets the high standards we set for ourselves.

Prime Secure boasts UK wide coverage and can quickly arrange a site assessment, followed by deployment of security guards to your site.

We can provide canine security guard patrols with handlers should you require. Highly trained with acute senses of smell and hearing, canine officers can often cover the area of 2 or 3 human officers thanks to their heightened senses.

Give us a call on 0345 88 88 333 to discuss your options and we'll help you work out whether your site is more suited to human or canine security, or both!
