Showing that a construction site is monitored round-the-clock, using well positioned correx, durable, waterproof,fully recyclable, warning sign boards alerts intruders before entering the site and acts as an effective, visual deterrent. Warning sign boards also provide our contact information for anyone who needs to report a suspicious activity.
We use the latest Guard Patrol System to monitor security guards' patrol routines and activities. We place RFID tags around the site so that whoever is on duty has to patrol the site at specific times. Site managers can monitor security operations and view report incidents in real-time. Any incident report or missed checkpoint can be sent instantly relayed to the control room or site manager.
The system saves our security guards lot of time, and instead of spending time writing reports and making pointless phone calls to our control room, they can simply carry our with their routine.
We also conduct regular, unannounced supervisory site visits to check our guards' performance and welfare.
