Building Site Security

As the construction trade flourishes within Northern Ireland so does its workforce and of course expensive machinery, equipment and materials.

Unfortunately within the UK & Ireland the construction industry are under constant attack whilst absent from building sites from vandals and thieves.

Building Site Crime Statistics

An annual report was released by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) in 2016 which states statistics carried out within the construction industry regarding building site crime;

Theft is the most common crime; 21% of respondents state that they experience theft each week and, overall, 92% are affected weekly, monthly or yearly. This indicates that the industry needs to seriously consider the prevention of theft and ensure that construction workers know how to deal with it appropriately.

Another section of the report details the estimated losses within the construction industry due to vandalism and theft;

It is estimated that the construction industry suffers a loss of more than £400 million a year due to vandalism and theft, although it is hard to get an accurate figure as many of these crimes go unreported.
