Site security must be enforced to maintain high safety standards.

Construction sites can be dangerous places, especially for members of the public who are not aware of the hazards and therefore not permitted to enter.

However, sometimes site boundaries are not always clearly visible or simply cannot physically deny entrance.

One site managed this using a public trespassing sensor:

  • A stretch of road where a project was active in Cumbria was encountering a persistent problem of the public (walkers, cyclists), entering their works area delineated with traffic management set out to allow carrying out verge works;
  • A laser beam monitors access to the works areas and when breached an audible alarm sounds to warn operatives that pedestrians, cyclists or vehicles are approaching the works where they, or the operatives, could be at risk;
  • Operatives may not otherwise know that the public had entered the works due to the use of power tools;
  • PPE and this sensor system warned them that someone was approaching who should not be there.
