Keep Good Records
- Label all equipment with unique identifying numbers, including Product Identification Numbers (PIN) andOwner Applied Number (OAN).
- Consider marking above numbers in multiple locations on equipment.
- Keep accurate inventory records.
- Record manufacturer, model number, year, PIN and purchase date for each piece of equipment.
- Record serial numbers of each major component parts.
- Consider registering your equipment with a national database.
Focus on Physical Site Security
- When possible, fence in your equipment.
- Park equipment close together and in a circle if feasible, with smaller pieces in the center; chain small equipment to larger equipment.
- Install on-site security cameras and motion sensors on the jobsite.
- Communicate with law enforcement. Request more frequent patrols, especially in known high-theft areas.
Use Theft Deterrents and Proven Recovery Systems
- Use immobilization devices such as wheel locks, fuel shut-offs or ignition locks.
