Security During the Holiday Period

Security During the Holiday Period

Construction sites are likely to close over the Christmas period. As labourers go home to their families, there is one group of people who will be required to stay on-site – security guards.

Construction sites are likely to close over the Christmas period. As labourers go home to their families, there is one group of people who will be required to stay on-site – security guards.

Security guards are needed to protect valuable items left on-site, unmanned and at the mercy of the public. Items could include plant and machinery, tools and equipment, and storage containers – all of which could be hired through PAL Hire.

Why are security guards needed?

The simple answer is a security guard scares people. If you’re thinking it’s a good idea to jump a fence and play with excavators and diggers, like these boys did, then a security guard would stop you in your tracks.

They may not even have to patrol the area; their presence would be enough to scare off any would-be criminals.

Protecting a site over Christmas could prove vital when trying to meet milestones and deadlines in the New Year. A disruption at such an important time of year could cause 2019 to start in the wrong direction. We urge you to not let this happen. If you believe your site could be in danger, take precautions rather than face the worst case scenario.

If you think you need security guards on-site during the Christmas holidays, speak to our consultants. All security guards will have the required certifications and checks completed before they are assigned to your site.
