Prevent Theft with Site Security


  • Setup fencing to surround the worksite. The fence is best when made of see-through material like chain link fences, so that potential thieves can be spotted from the outside.
  • Make sure the fence is 8 feet high with posts.
  • Make sure to install barbed wire or razor tape as well.
  • Conduct fence inspections and repair any damage as soon as it is identified.


  • Post "Warning" signs around the exterior of your jobsite. Highlight laws that trespasser are breaking and the potential penalties that could be enforced.
  • Use warning decals on the equipment and register each machine in a national database for law enforcement.


  • Each gate should have a padlock.
  • If it is possible, maintain only one entrance and exit to the worksite.


  • Place lights throughout the property and on the exterior to expose dark areas.
  • It is important to frequently inspect the lighting and fix any bulbs that burnout.
