Mike Longmire presented Security Issues to Materials Management in Construction, a graduate civil engineering course. The focus of the presentation was the difference between safety and security. Because security is not highly regulated like safety, security is often not considered in the initial stages of construction projects as it should be. The presentation also provided discussion and statistics regarding theft in the construction environment and ways to mitigate theft through a comprehensive security program.
