Toronto Rampaged by Construction Site Theft

Posted by Content Editor on 7/25/19 4:14 PM

Toronto is booming. With that boom comes new businesses and opportunity, and of course, construction sites. Each site can attract seasoned thieves, and a chain-link fence won’t be enough to keep them out.

Recently, an independent survey of 100 construction companies found that there are an average of 2 construction equipment thefts per site per year! Each theft knocked a company back $30,000 on average, and over 50% of stolen property was never recovered. 

When theft occurs, the items stolen are never the only loss.

  • Employee morale drops. Project managers and supervisors now have the burden of dealing with the aftermath of a theft.
  • The job can be delayed until equipment is replaced. Who has time for that?

Construction site theft has rampaged Ontario, costing businesses $15-$20 million every year.
