Reducing the summer holiday dangers of derelict buildings

Tag Guard : 23 June, 2009  (Technical Article)
Tag Guard suggests an alternative to manned guarding for the protection of derelict visitors during the holidays and preventing young people from being injured through trespass
Reducing the summer holiday dangers of derelict buildings
Schools will soon be out for the summer, which means children and youths will have a great deal of time on their hands. Derelict and unoccupied buildings can become a magnet for kids to start fires, smash windows and generally fool around - just for "fun" of course.

But such buildings can represent a very real hazard - typically they are littered with broken glass and structurally they may be unsafe. The structural problem is not uncommon if thieves have already targeted a building in the past to steal high value raw materials and scrap metals. With the recession there are now thousands of derelict and unoccupied buildings all over the UK and they can all too easily become a playground for kids, especially in school holidays.

Children are usually oblivious to the risks but dangers lurk in every part of a derelict or unoccupied building. And who is liable if there is an accident? Almost certainly the building owner - for failing to properly supervise or monitor the building.

What alternatives does a building owner have? Manned guarding or security patrols can be prohibitively expensive when, by definition, an unoccupied building is generating no income to help cover the cost. A cost effective solution can be a wireless security system. The leader in this field is Tag Guard whose wireless security products are ideally suited to such applications and lower in cost than traditional solutions such as manned guarding. Being wireless, their systems are quick and easy to install, requiring no cabling or power supplies - useful in a building where the power is likely to have been deactivated.

So, if you are an owner or key holder of a building that is empty and are concerned about the possibility of it becoming a kids' playground this summer, get in contact with Tag Guard.
