Remote Construction Site Monitoring, Part 4: Perimeter Security

The demand for increasing jobsite security has only increased in recent years – making sure that only people with permission and the right documentation are allowed on our sites. We also need to make sure that while we have a reduced human presence, that we don’t see an increase in theft or intrusion.

Perimeter security represents our most significant opportunity to protect our sites and our workers, keeping us all at work and production high.

Creating a safer, more secure, environment with secure perimeters.

There are two main approaches to perimeter security: human presence at every opening and hard-access turnstiles.

For many years, common practice has relied on a security staffer with a clipboard, manual tracking of the ingress and egress of site personnel, plus manual tracking of key team-updates such as health checks and certifications. It’s difficult to track changing permissions of workers allowed on site manually, or on spreadsheets. If someone is banned from the site, or given access, the guards won’t have that information until someone has sent it to them.

Use of an access control solution on handheld devices guards can carry builds a digital bridge between the trailer and access points. With each badge-scan, the system can automatically check a centralized database of permissions, updated in real time. Like other site crews, the security staff need to follow safety protocols. As such, badge scanners that can operate at a safe distance (+6 feet) allow for safe interaction and optimized workflow.
