Safety and security managers have one of the hardest construction jobs out there. Statistically, this is fact. It can be dangerous, and the nature of construction work does make it one of the most dangerous jobs there is.
You have heavy equipment to deal with, man-made and natural hazards to think about, and not to mention a fast-paced and chaotic environment. You have too many things to deal with, so poor jobsite access control should be top of mind.
Workplace violence, for example, has risen to second place in the list of leading causes of on-the-job injuries and fatalities nationwide. And, while it can’t compare in priority to people being injured or killed on your construction site, the rising cost of theft and vandalism has to be on your radar as well.
All of these challenges have two key factors in common:
- They represent serious potential loss to every construction firm (in many tangible and intangible ways).
- They can all be significantly mitigated by focusing on one key security measure: jobsite access control.
In this guide, we’ll dive deeper into each of the costly effects of inadequate jobsite access control. We’ll cover how the issue can develop in the construction environment, what the potential impact could be on your workers and the company itself, and how improving jobsite access control can help reduce the risk considerably.
