RESOURCES – Contractors’ Loss Prevention Tips

  • Ensure that all exterior doors have deadbolt locks with a minimum one inch bolt into the strike plate.
  • Secure exposed exterior door hinge pins to prevent their removal.
  • Protect all grade floor glass through the use of bars, metal screens or burglary resistant glazing materials.
  • Install a burglar alarm system which is monitored offsite. We recommend that the system be certified by Underwriters Laboratories of Canada (ULC).
  • Continually check for unsafe work conditions and practices, and take prompt corrective action.
  • Provide a complement of serviced, multi-purpose fire extinguishers in your premises and instruct all staff in their use.
