Controlling access to your construction site is essential for the security of the property, equipment and personnel working on site. By implementing effective access control, you can keep your workers and the public safe, your site secure and avoid the costs of theft and vandalism.
Cerberus’ site access control solutions include turnstile cabins, manned guards and biometric and keycard readers to ensure only approved personnel are on site. Find out more about our construction site access control solutions below.
Construction Site Access Control Services
Our site survey and risk assessment will ensure you have a well-rounded site access solution for your construction site. Still, some of the individual features of our access control solution for our construction sites include:
- Turnstile cabin – This is placed at the entrance to the construction site and includes a manned security office, with a turnstile operated by a guard. This ensures only approved personnel can enter and leave the site, takes away the responsibility from staff to sign in and out, and is insurance approved.
- Keycard readers – Unique keycards can also be given to workers to present on entry to the site, with keycard readers used at the staffed turnstile to monitor and track access.
- Biometric access control – This can also be implemented for heightened security and minimises the risk of stolen or false credentials being shown to gain access to the premises. Biometric access control typically takes the form of fingerprint identification before access is granted to proceed onto the site. Biometric access is linked to Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) cards, making site reporting easier and simpler.
- The Cerberus site control system can provide a range of MI, including car emission reports, ensuring environmental and compliance matters are being adhered to.
All data that is captured as part of site access control is stored and protected in accordance with GDPR requirements, so you can rest assured your security measures are compliant with European data protection regulations.
We also provide three different types of access control, Discretionary Access Control (DAC), Mandatory Access Control (MAC) and Role Based Access Control (RBAC) systems. You can read more about our access control systems here.
Whatever combination of access control you need, we can work with you to design a solution that is easy for all personnel to understand, effective in securing your construction site and works within your budget.
Site Survey and Risk Assessment
Following an initial enquiry we will discuss with you your security needs and arrange a no-obligation site survey and quotation. A risk assessment can also be conducted, and from this initial research, we can understand your security requirements in more detail. This will allow us to recommend a site access control solution that is bespoke to your security needs.
From this risk assessment and initial survey, we may additionally recommend other security solutions to enhance your site security if required. This might include CCTV to ensure images are captured of any attempted breach of the site, and to act as a visual deterrent, or open and lock up services to ensure your site is secured by trained security personnel.
