Overcoming 2023's Construction Security Hurdles: Your Comprehensive Guide to Crucial Safeguards
As we continue to grapple with the residual effects of the COVID-19 crisis, the construction industry is still burdened by supply chain disruptions and labor shortages. Amid these trials, the critical need for construction security is unwavering. The National Equipment Register highlights that construction equipment theft costs hover between $300 million to $1 billion annually, with a staggering 75% of stolen materials never recovered. In recent years, Texas has ranked first in reported thefts.
In light of these statistics, it's imperative for construction companies to be proactive in deterring theft, vandalism, and ensuring the safety of their workers and visitors. Here are four key aspects of construction security for 2023 that USSV Security can help you with to protect your site's assets and personnel.
