Keeping tools and workplaces secured is a top priority for most mobile offices. Often these mobile offices look vulnerable but usually are equipped with state of the art security features to keep them more secure. At high-risk sites, like construction areas with expensive tools and equipment, this is even more necessary. While most mobile office trailers come with standard safety features, there are plenty of ways to increase your security. Here’s how you can easily protect your office trailer.
One of the best ways to deter vandals and thieves is to have prominent and well-advertised security cameras. With video, monitoring features most potential interlopers will be scared off by the threat of being caught. When using this method, be sure to have plenty of lighting to help the cameras do their jobs. Additionally, having plenty of notice that the area is monitored is often enough to keep many away.
Most mobile offices come with steel reinforced construction and standard window and door locks, but extra protection can always be added. If your mobile office is in a high crime or busy city area adding security bars, window screens, and deadbolts are a few ways to get the extra security you need.
Adding A Checkpoint
Lastly, one of the best ways to deter theft is to have staff at all times. While this may not be feasible for all projects, on major endeavors having a guardhouse or checkpoint is a considerable deterrent. Not only does it make the project look more official, but the presence of security personal day and night will help reduce break-ins. Not to mention, adding security that monitors who is coming and going can help reduce more casual theft from employees and legitimate visitors as well.
