If your construction or civil site is forced to close or shut down due to COVID-19, are you prepared?
With the Government’s recent Alert Level system introduced to combat and fight against the spread of COVID-19, Crosbies Security are preparing a number of measures to assist our clients with the possibility of a shut down should we reach Alert Level 4.
These measures are the same as what we implemented for many of our clients during Christmas shut down.
As you know, during Christmas shut downs, construction & civil sites are left as sitting ducks due to no or skeleton staffing. This means you would typically have the standard heightened risks around theft, burglary and vandalism during these times, with the reduced presence of staff on site and able to check on the sites.
A potential shut down to your site as a result of COVID-19 could be no different, and in many cases could even hold slightly higher risk.
Admittedly, as the owner of Crosbies Security, even I am unsure about what could be different during this type of shut down, as opposed to a normal Christmas shut down.
We want to be sensible with our approach to a potential shut down, which is why we’re basing our contingency planning on our Christmas shut down approach.
So what are we doing for our current customers?
All of our current customers will have a standard shut down plan generated for their site security.
This is the same as for during Christmas. So, if you don’t request any additional security, then we will simply activate your unique shut down plan.
This could be:
shifting to arming the cameras 24/7
providing security patrol checks
or adding extra security to your site through a combination of either cameras, solar powered lighting towers, or security guards.
This is absolutely no different to Christmas.
If your security is a little light
If you are not a current customer or you think your security is a little light, there are things we can do.
Install solar powered security cameras & alarms
Provide random patrol checks to your site to increase visibility
Provide security signage
Place a static guard on any high risk projects
Add solar lighting to illuminate the site to reduce overall vulnerability.
