Fighting back against the plant theft lockdown boom with Ian Elliott, UK group head of security Podcast

Fighting back against the plant theft lockdown boom – the second in the podcast ‘fighting theft’, journalist, Peter Haddock talks to Ian Elliott, UK group head of security for utility services and construction specialist, Clancy Docwra, who offers some expert advice.

Ian talks about how he is tackling plant theft by making equipment ‘As unattractive as possible’.

Hear about the issues Clancy continues to face with theft. And how they are using a combination of the Datatag ID Ltd CESAR Scheme, immobilisers, telemetry tracking, advanced operator identity cards, and some paint, to create a layered approach to theft prevention.

Not forgetting ‘Stopping the thieves at the fence’ with the latest active thermal camera technology.

Ian also asks the question ‘Do you know the cost of theft to your business?’ He explains how this is not just due to lost equipment, lost work hours, and insurance costs, but the impact of reputational damage.

This is a must-listen for every plant and equipment owner in the construction sector, as Ian is definitely on the front line and coming out fighting.
