Improving construction site security can help builders avoid costly losses
Deploying specific measures and systems aimed at improving construction site security will help prevent costly losses – and even keep smaller builders in business.
According to a recent news report, a spate of tools thefts is putting builders across Dorset out of business. Police have revealed there were a total of 415 offences of tools theft in 2019 and 419 the year before, and there are reports of companies folding as a result of these thefts.
One victim lost £10,000 worth of tools to raiders who used a crowbar to break into a reinforced steel container at a building site in Sopley.
He said “Thieves are breaking into vans as well as building sites and stealing thousands of pounds worth of tools.”
He added: “There were tyre marks and footprints at the scene but the police still didn’t send anyone out to investigate.
A spokeswoman for Dorset Police said: “Residents are advised to be vigilant and reminded of the importance of security marking high value tools and keeping them securely locked away when unattended.
“We recognise the impact that this type of incident can have on an individual or business. Any suspicious activity should be reported to the police using 101. If a crime is in progress or life is in danger, please dial 999.”
