Is your site secure?

In view of the current situation, some contractors have taken the very tough decision to close their sites until further notice. As the COVID-19 pandemic sweeps across the UK, many of these sites were very reactive in their shut down, and may not have had the time to carry out a security risk assessment of the site. We have compiled our top 10 checklist:

  1. Are all entrance points secure?
  2. Are all gates, perimeter fencing or hoarding safe and secure?
  3. Has all plant been immobilised and valuables (incl keys), materials and equipment been securely stored?
  4. Has all access to scaffolding and platforms been removed?
  5. Is the scaffold alarm fully functioning, armed and confirmed by monitoring station?
  6. Are excavations clearly fenced off?
  7. Is the site clear of waste, particularly, flammables?
  8. Are you in a high risk area without CCTV or patrols?
  9. Have the correct emergency contacts been set up?
  10. Are tower cranes enclosures secure and locked off?

Security of projects are often more complex than this quick fire list but we understand in the current environment there is little time for advanced planning.
