Experienced project managers and construction site supervisors know the importance of keeping a safe and secure construction site. A secure construction site perimeter can mean the difference between construction project that is completed on time and under budget verses a drawn out, over budget project that falls short of meeting its completion date.
Construction equipment theft and loss of time due to delays costs American construction companies nearly $1 billion every year. Construction managers, planners, and project management need to work on preventing these losses at every step of the construction process, start to finish.
In most cases, a minimal investment in perimeter security can help prevent these losses and avoid theft on the jobsite. Working with knowledgeable professionals is essential when trying to properly secure your construction projects. In this week’s edition of the Turnstile blog we'd like to take a look at the top 3 key elements required to keep your construction site secure.
By providing turnstiles and vehicle gates with access control technology integrated into your security plan, you not only gain an added level of security in physical form, but also in visual form. Thieves and intruders are often deterred by the sight of a turnstile or vehicle gate.
3. Access Control Technology
Access control technology can provide security, time-keeping/payroll data, and be tied into existing security infrastructure or act as a stand-alone solution specific to a gate or entrance to your site. Many different types of access control technology have been developed over the past few decades. Access control solutions from as simple as magnetic card swipes, RFID readers, all the way to more complex hand geometry reader and iris scanning solutions can be used to create a secure perimeter for your construction site.
