Protecting Your Jobsite: Preventing Theft with BIGView

 Construction sites are hotbeds for theft, with valuable materials and equipment often left unattended for hours at a time. From small tools to building materials, the losses incurred due to theft can be substantial, not just in terms of the stolen items themselves but also in terms of lost productivity and project delays.

According to industry statistics, building materials such as steel, copper, lumber, and other commodities are among the most commonly stolen items, with a staggering 85% of stolen goods never being recovered. This rampant theft not only affects the bottom line of construction companies but also disrupts project timelines and compromises site safety.

In the face of such challenges, innovative solutions are necessary to combat theft effectively. One such solution gaining traction in the construction industry is the use of advanced surveillance systems like BIGView mobile security trailers and expandable remote mounted kits. These systems provide round-the-clock monitoring and surveillance, acting as a deterrent to potential thieves and enabling swift action in the event of a theft attempt.

Here are the top five items that are frequently targeted by thieves on construction sites and how BIGView solutions can help mitigate these risks:

  1. Small Tools and Supplies: From gloves to welding equipment, small tools and supplies are easy targets for opportunistic thieves. These items are often left unattended and can be quickly pocketed by workers or outsiders. With BIGView surveillance solutions even the sight of monitoring equipment can deter thieves from attempting theft, providing peace of mind to construction site managers.
  2. Appliances: Contractors working on projects such as senior living centers and condos must be vigilant against premeditated theft of appliances. BIGView surveillance solutions can track deliveries and monitor designated rooms, preventing theft before it occurs and thwarting potential inside jobs that could significantly impact project budgets.
  3. Building Materials: Valuable commodities like steel, copper, and lumber left lying around on a jobsite are prime targets for theft. With real-time monitoring and remote access capabilities offered by BIGView, construction managers can keep a constant eye on their materials, reducing the risk of theft and ensuring that valuable resources are protected.
  4. Production Delays: When essential tools and supplies are stolen, the resulting production delays can have a significant impact on project timelines and budgets. With BIGView surveillance solutions in place, construction managers can quickly identify and address theft attempts, minimizing disruptions and maximizing productivity on the jobsite.
  5. Time: Perhaps the most valuable resource on any construction site is time. Theft not only results in the loss of physical assets but also wastes precious time and money. By investing in comprehensive surveillance solutions like those offered by BIGView surveillance solutions construction companies can protect their most valuable assets – both tangible and intangible – and ensure that projects proceed smoothly and efficiently.

In conclusion, the prevalence of theft on construction sites poses a significant challenge for contractors and project managers. However, with advanced surveillance technologies like BIGView mobile security trailers and extendable remote mounted kits, it's possible to deter thieves, prevent theft, and safeguard valuable assets and resources. By investing in proactive security measures, construction companies can not only protect their bottom line but also ensure the safety and success of their projects.
