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.
