A construction site can be a dangerous place with a variety of expensive equipment. There are other additional ways to keep everyone involved safe within a job site that you should consider. To keep you, your workers, your equipment, and anyone else safe from possible danger, secure your site using the following helpful tips.
Within a site, there are many hazards to look out for. Risk factors include falling items (and people), collapsing of building materials, injuries involving tools, and injuries sustained from not wearing the proper protective equipment. Extreme caution should be used when in a hazardous location like a job site.
Theft may also be a problem when leaving your job site for the night or weekend. You site includes many pieces of expensive equipment and keeping them safe is important too. A fence, even a temporary rental fence, around your site can prevent not only robbery but vandalism and other crimes from occurring. Fences should be tall enough to prevent risk of intrusion — a common height of 8 feet is recommended.
Consider tracking the items and tools in question, using a regular inventory process prior to and following a lengthy absence. Designate a person to be the one to be in charge of safety and security. This person could be a trusted crew member that would make sure the site is as it should be, and should be a part of their requirements that the inventory and safety processes are followed.
Even something as obvious as adequate lighting can help keep your site more secure. Preventing a problem is better than having to deal with the consequences. We are biased, of course, but we believe that one of the best ways to prevent any sort of damage or problem on your construction site is to install a temporary fence to keep out unwanted visitors and to keep your site safe.
