Building site security

Construction businesses are usually incredibly busy using their skills and staff to carry out their building work.

These sites are cramped with expensive equipment and materials. Due to strict deadlines, it is impractical and expensive to take equipment away every day. Which means equipment and materials remain on site until the project is complete.

This creates an

opportunity for thieves to access the site and potentially steal the equipment and materials – costing the construction company thousands.

Using a professional security service provider

Many construction companies have suffered losses through theft and vandalism. Companies now consider using a professional security service provider to ensure that the construction site is secure.

Security companies such as All Time Security have been providing construction companies with professionally trained security guards for many years. All security guards are SIA qualified and receive additional training on how to manage security on construction sites.

Security guards are fully trained to deal with all types of situations and are vigilant in identifying potential problems. Although the primary objective of the security guard is to ensure the security of the site and safety of anyone on the site, they actively look for vulnerabilities such a pipes leaking or fire and health and safety hazards.

Access control

Not only are security guards patrolling the site at night while it is empty and vulnerable, they are also available to be on site to conduct access control. They will ensure only authorised people are permitted to enter the site and meet specified requirements, such as high visibility uniform and safety equipment.

Construction security guards are also reception trained and can ensure a strict signing in and out policy is in place.


Security guards are always presentable and are equipped with high visibility clothing. They act as a visual deterrent and the first point of call. All SIA security guards from ATS are fire marshal and first aid trained.

All Time Security ensure that additional training is provided to security guards to help further their ability to communicate accurately and effectively. Whether this is via radio, phone or in written statements.

Security guards come equipped with appropriate footwear, high visibility uniform and professional communication equipment such as long-range radios.

Security guards have 24-hour support from the ATS control room which has fast communication with emergency services.
