Trespasser Gets Injured on Construction Site

Posted by Steve Mansell on Apr 20, 2020

In this month’s video, a trespasser loses his footing and falls while trying to access the second level of a building under construction.

Just after 4:00 in the morning, two individuals were spotted on a Toronto construction site. They gained entry by easily moving a section of the chain-link perimeter fence. They appeared to be removing items from the site. A trained Stealth security operator activated the on-site speaker warning, which seemed to be ignored. Upon further investigation, one of the suspects did leave the property.

Our security operator contacted Toronto police. The remaining trespasser climbed up to the second level of the building, then lost his footing and fell to the ground. Police arrived while the individual was writhing in pain on the ground. Our operator updated the police on the suspect’s status. The perpetrator stood up and walked toward the officers and was placed under arrest.

Help Deter Trespassers with Remote Video Monitoring

Construction sites are very enticing to trespassers. However, the sites can be especially dangerous for unwanted visitors who are unaware of where the hazards are. In some cases, a trespasser can sue the contractor if they can prove negligence on the site.

If you don’t want trespassers to get hurt on your property, then you need to do everything you can to help prevent them from entering in the first place.

Remote video surveillance can help protect construction sites from theft, vandalism and even liability issues. Monitored cameras can help by watching out for unwanted guests and hazardous situations. The video footage can provide evidence of who is responsible for any accidents that occur. Operators watch cameras in real time. If they see a suspicious person nearing the site, they can alert them by activating an audio speaker and calling police.
