Organising access for people at the building site

In order to prevent unwanted visits, a building site needs to be properly closed off to unauthorised persons both during and after working hours. Clear access with the right access control measures in place ensures that unauthorised persons are kept off the building site during working hours. This gives contractors the assurance that only the people who need to be on site have access to it, which also limits the risk of any theft.
