Vehicles, plant and machinery
It is important that steps are taken to properly secure any on-site tools, plant or vehicles that could be used to gain access to your fertiliser store or to remove fertiliser without authority.
This should include lifting machinery such as forklifts, ‘tele-handlers’ or vehicles fitted with hydraulic loading cranes.
Where possible hand-tools and power tools should be kept locked away when not in use and mobile plant and vehicles should be secured and immobilised.
Commercially available 'off the shelf' vehicle immobilisers (electronic or physical) can be very effective and will certainly delay anyone wishing to make use of them in order to force an entry into a secure store.
Vehicle keys should be secured when not in use. Where many keys are in use it is good practice to maintain a key list and routinely check that they can be accounted for.
Consider using heavy agricultural machinery such as buckets, power harrows or other large machines to restrict direct vehicular access to stacks of sheeted fertiliser, particularly if the fertiliser cannot be stored in a secure building or compound.
