"Building sites present a constant security challenge, so ensure all plant equipment is marked with Selectamark"
Sites can be particularly vulnerable to plant theft due to the need for frequent access by workers, contractors and for deliveries – especially at night and over weekends when no one is around.
Thieves view stealing plant equipment as low risk and high rewards. Equipment such as trailers, dumpers, excavators, breakers, rollers, compressor, tractors and generators are the most at risk.
The recovery rate of stolen construction equipment is very poor because the identification of unmarked plant is virtually impossible once it has been removed from its proper site.
Precautions should be taken to ensure plant equipment is marked with the Selectamark permanent marking system or SelectaDNA forensic marking system with any serial numbers registered on our Secure Asset Register.
This ensures that if a theft take place and the items are recovered, they can be returned to the rightful owner. Outdoor warning signs can warn thieves that your items are marked and protected.Other Sectors
