Protect the Perimeter of Your Construction Site During the Coronavirus
The importance and essential nature of physical security on construction sites is now more important than ever. Every year millions of dollars are lost to thieves on construction sites. But tools and equipment are not the only things that those thieves are stealing. Millions of dollars are also lost because of the time and effort it takes to replace those tools and equipment, and in many instances construction can grind to a halt while awaiting their arrival. Construction and the building of new homes, power plants, and commercial buildings is essential to the growth of our economy and the prosperity of our world. In order to keep up and push through these tough times, Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) has been able to keep the lines of communication open for our customers both current and prospective.
In this week’s edition of the Turnstile Blog we'd like to take a look at some of the things you can do to make sure your construction site is secure.
Physical Perimeter Security
The outer perimeter of your construction site is defined by your perimeter fence and is essential to control who can walk or drive onto your property. In order to maintain a secure perimeter on your construction site, a solid fence that is professionally installed can make all the difference in the world.
In addition to a solid fence, the appropriate gates for foot traffic and vehicle traffic also need to be considered. Products like the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal and the patented Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portal complete with climate-controlled guard offices, full-height turnstiles, and vehicle barrier gates can provide easy access for authorized individuals while acting as both a visual and physical deterrent for would-be thieves.
For many in the construction industry, the coronavirus has emphasized the need for a safe, healthy, and secure workforce. Even as the coronavirus sweeps around the world, many construction workers must continue to do their jobs. We at MSSI would like to reiterate the CDC guidelines to keep yourself and your co-workers healthy in these trying times.
Make Sure To:
Wash your hands often
Refrain from touching your face
Allow for 6 feet of distance between co-workers
Remain positive, because we’ve got this!
Remember, as construction workers – the builders of our tomorrow – your team is essential to the future of our country and our world. MSSI and our line of perimeter security solutions is there to keep your construction sites secure and your workers safe, especially during times like these, when we are all being asked to do our part to stay healthy and think of others who may be impacted by our necessary daily activities.
