Tips for Cleaning Up Your Construction Site

March 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 156

As winter gives way to spring, you can be sure that there will still be some tough weather and storms to overcome. After all, we are not out of the woods yet. Early spring storms will still roll in and make a mess of any working construction site. And whether you a construction site crew member or it is your job to keep everything running and moving smoothly, inclement weather during a construction job can prove to be incredibly stressful, annoying, and tedious. While you have many things on your professional plate at any given time, one of your main concerns should be construction site safety.

The first step to having a safe working construction site is to make sure the grounds are clean and free from trash and garbage. While this may seem trivial, it is an easy step to secure and it can make a big difference in the running and completing of the construction gig. And remember, this isn't a one-man or one-woman job. Involve your entire construction crew and everyone on-site to assist in the clean up. Once it is clean, remind everyone to pick up after themselves throughout the day and before they leave for the day. This ensures that your construction site will remain clean and not become something like a garbage pit again.

The second part of protecting your construction project and your crew is to teach and review all procedures, policies, guidelines, and rules that need to be followed on your site. Talk about what to do if there is an accident, spill, excess pollution, or an injury. Preparedness will only help you and your crew stay safe and your site remain in compliance. If you ever feel that your crew is not following the official policies and procedures, do not hesitate to hold another meeting. The more you do, the better they will remember that information in the future. And if they don't, another meeting is on the way. That alone should entice their strict compliance.

Next, make sure your construction project has the necessary equipment, which is more than just the large machinery. It also includes curb and inlet filters. These necessary and beneficial filters stop debris and unnecessary sediment from clogging drains and from getting into unfiltered water supplies. With these three steps, you will be sure to have a safer construction plan put into place.Construction site safetyis not something to be taken lightly, especially with all the potential fines and lawsuits. You are in charge of your site & your crew, and this is one way to keep them safe and properly cared for, not to mention your business reputation.
