As a leader in property and site security, we understand that infrastructure development projects, construction sites, and storage depots can be exposed to numerous risks. They require a professional, responsive, and efficient on-site security strategy to recognise threats, implement robust safeguards and protect people, property and assets.
Securing your site is vitally important to prevent the loss of valuable tools, machinery and materials, as well as keeping the public and workers safe.
Maintenance, development, and construction work linked to infrastructure projects is often on a large scale, without the option of returning all assets and equipment to a central depot at the end of each working day.
Work occurring in a public space, within open areas of land or in remote regions can be particularly at risk of theft, vandalism, or targeted robberies.
The stats concerning site theft are frightening.
At Clearway we understand that securing your sites is imperative. We have a wealth of experience in delivering professional preventative measures – ranging from temporary, mobile CCTV towers with remote monitoring to site access control and manned guarding and everything in between.
Our security solutions are designed to deter criminal activity and ensure your site and its valuable assets remain protected, as the consequential costs can be considerable, both in terms of delays to your project and financial loss to the scheme promoter/contractor.
Construction and building sites are often a magnet for theft and trespassing due to the high value equipment often kept on site. Our security services can tightly control access to your construction site, while deterring unwanted visitors.
It is essential for all construction sites to implement security measures to protect their equipment from break ins and theft, especially where hazardous materials, unstable structures and exposed wiring may be present.
We will undertake a thorough risk assessment of your construction site to determine the security weaknesses and the procedures and equipment we recommend installing to keep your building site secure 24/7, whether manned or unmanned.
This includes CCTV monitoring, temporary security systems, open and lock up and site access control – but all security services will be considered following an audit to give your construction site the protection it needs. Find out more about our building site security services below.
Comprehensive CCTV installation and monitoring not only provides a clear visual deterrent to any would-be trespassers, but is a proven method of detecting criminal activity – monitored 24/7 by trained professionals, assessing security alerts for false alarms and ready to notify police or dispatch security personnel at a moment’s notice.
An initial audit is used to determine key areas that need to be monitored for your site, along with any potential weak points that should be monitored and secured in combination with other security measures we recommend.
All CCTV is monitored in real-time by security personnel at our dedicated Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC), which has been accredited to Gold Standard by the UK’s National Security Inspectorate.
Construction sites benefit enormously from our temporary CCTV systems as these can be installed within 30 minutes of arriving on site. Our rapid deployment, solar-powered CCTV towers are perfect for sites with limited or no access to power/internet access. These systems require little maintenance and can be taken down at a moment’s notice. They provide 360-degree coverage of even the largest areas and footage is viewable and controllable remotely to make your construction site secure from every angle.
Protect your teams and reduce your liability with our automated, AI powered, edge and cloud-based solution that enables PPE compliance.
Understand Health and Safety breaches and detect risks in real-time with Clearway’s solution connected to our cloud-based analytics platform. It can provide statistics, automated email notifications and near miss reporting accompanied by snapshots of the non-compliant wearing of hard hats, hi-visibility trousers or hi-visibility vest or jackets.
The software can easily be tailored to scan for the minimum PPE requirements of a specific site, whether that is full PPE or just hard hat and jackets only. Detection zones can also be implemented to mitigate false positive alerts for areas where PPE is not required.
Clearway’s innovative, new wearable technology is designed to help protect those working in high risk / volatile / public facing environments.
Current ‘bodycam’ solutions mean you need different devices for various activities, Clearway has amalgamated these into one piece of equipment for the operative/lone worker in either the form of a security body cam or for some use cases the device simply attaches to a workers hard hat – ‘helmet mounted cam’.
With the function to live stream, this also means less return visits to site, you can easily have your co-workers login live to what you are looking at and solve issues in real-time on site, giving the view from the workers eye level perspective. This also reduces the need for people to attend site for inspections and helps designers with technical queries.
Our open and lock up services are perfect for construction sites which need to remain secure at specified times. Our team can ensure your site is secured when you need it and opened and closed at the required times to keep all staff and equipment safe.
Following the closure of your building site, a Clearway staff member will ensure all staff have left and the site is secured prior to setting the alarm system.
Our staff will also be there to open up the site at whatever time your business needs to ensure workers can access the site when they need to while keeping the area secure.
For construction sites, we typically recommend installing a turnstile cabin with a manned security office. This can also be combined with biometric and keycard reader access controls. Our building site access control system takes the burden of signing in and out away from staff and is fully insurance approved for your business’ peace of mind.
As well as construction site security, Clearway has provided professional security solutions to local and central governments and businesses across the UK for over 20 years.
