Threats & Risks

Natural disasters

Natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, and wildfires can cause significant damage to construction sites, machinery, and equipment, which can lead to project delays and cost overruns.


Fires can occur due to electrical faults, welding, or other construction-related activities. They can cause damage to property and equipment and also result in injuries and fatalities.

Equipment theft and vandalism

Construction sites are often left unguarded, making them a target for thieves and vandals. Stolen equipment and materials can cause project delays and financial losses.

Power outages

Power outages can occur due to severe weather conditions or other factors, causing work stoppages and project delays.

Water damage

Water damage can occur due to flooding, pipe bursts, or leaks. It can cause damage to property, machinery, and equipment, and also result in project delays.

Environmental hazards

Construction sites may be exposed to hazardous materials such as asbestos, lead, or other toxic chemicals that can pose health risks to workers and the environment.

Structural failures

Structural failures due to design flaws, construction defects, or natural disasters can cause injuries and fatalities, as well as project delays and financial losses.
