NCE this week launched the new Construction Site Security Conference and Exhibition designed to prompt a vital step change in the planning, management and operation of UK construction sites.
The event will take place in the Pavilion Suite at Ascot Racecourse on 17 and 18 May and will bring together professionals from across the plant and security industries to tackle the increasingly important issue of protecting equipment and personnel on site.
Issues under discussion at the event will range from the determination of the site boundary and managing and minimising public risk, through to safeguarding employees, building materials, equipment and property.
Recent market research shows that over 63% on construction sites report theft of everything from building materials to excavators, on a monthly basis.
Construction managers have a duty of care to do everything they can to protect the public and employees and it makes good business sense to minimise theft.
The NCE Construction Site Security Conference and Exhibition will examine the issues and suggest best practice solutions to problems.
The conference will be run three times with sessions from 12pm Tuesday 17 and 8.30am and 12pm on Wednesday 18.
The exhibition will be open from 12pm on Tuesday 17 and from 8.30am to 5.30pm on Wednesday 18. NCE editor Antony Oliver will host the conference and introduce a range of speakers from leading institutions, construction contractors, and suppliers.
