“Dumpster Rental” Service Provider for Troy, Shelby, and Metro Detroit, MI Discusses Job Site Safety

By: sherman roger


In the construction trade, job site safety is a number one concern. Nothing is more upsetting than watching one of your crew become injured or incapacitated on the job. Also unnerving, is the increase in liability costs and the fees associated with unsafe working conditions on the job site. Typically, maintaining proper equipment safety, proper safety gear, safe handling of dangerous materials, and the removal of potentially harmful waste minimizes the safety risks on a job site and offers maximum protection to workers.

Dangerous Materials

Most materials on a job site pose a safety risk to workers and others when left lying around. The following materials pose safety risks and must be removed from the job site as soon as possible or be stored in a safe manner to avoid injury:

* Excess Lumber
* Drywall material
* Nails, Screws, brackets
* Metal scraps
* Piping
* Brick
* Cement
* Insulation
* Wire, Mesh, Electrical Components

Proper Equipment/Safety Gear

Make sure everyone on your crew follows OLSHA guidelines for safety. This includes hard hats, steel-toed footwear, masks when appropriate, safety glasses and welding shields whenever required. These guidelines provide safety to workers. Failing to follow these regulations may result in fines, legal procedures, and increases in insurance premiums.

Waste Removal

Many paints and building materials are hazardous to the environment. Construction crews must carefully dispose of such materials. Other materials, though not dangerous, create safety risks to workers. Nails, broken glass, splintered lumber, sharp edges on brick and stone, and other building materials may injure workers, causing scrapes, punctures, or other abrasions. Tripping over excess materials or job site waste may cause bruising, sprains, or broken bones. To eliminate the risk posed by waste and debris on the job site, consider renting a dumpster for debris removal services. Such waste services include the use of a rental dumpster within the service package allowing workers to place waste immediately into a specified container, reducing the risk for injury.
