With the inevitable increase in construction projects in Ireland in future years, construction employers and employees should be aware of the potential to incur substantial losses through theft and vandalism. Building sites are by nature easy targets with a ready market for all types of materials, tools and machinery. Good security measures should take into account all types of criminal behaviour, and not just theft.
The An Garda Síochána National Crime Prevention Unit has provided HAI with a Crime Prevention Information Sheet to give HAI member construction companies the information they need to manage safety and security on their sites.
HAI Members can access this information sheet on The Hardware Education Hub. To access this sheet or for more information contact Aoife Kinsella at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01 2980969.
