Fracking is a subject that often dominates the news and can generate heightened emotions. Fracking regularly attracts protesters, resulting in the crucial necessity for site protection, such as high-security fencing.
Protesters could pose a significant danger to the running of the site and risk their own health if they could get onto the site.
The risk of potential security breaches was extremely high, and security fencing can deter and prevent protesters and trespassers from gaining access to the site, which is especially important if there is the potential they may interfere with the site or cause damage to it. Damage to the site could have caused serious interruption and impacted costs too.
It was also fundamental to erect temporary fencing to protect the health and safety of any trespassers. This was because there were many potential hazards on the site. These hazards could have proved harmful to someone who was not wearing the correct PPE or unfamiliar with the right procedures.
