One of the keys to a successful construction project is following proper construction procedures. Without these practices in place a project can be plagued with delays, poor quality, errors, and accidents. The following are a few standard procedures to keep worksite productivity on track.
A preventive maintenance program needs to be routine to be effective. From oil changes and lubrication to tire and track inspections, equipment maintenance needs to be a scheduled program to avoid issues.
Construction Procedures to Avoid Hazards
An OSHA study shows that the top four construction industry fatal hazards are falls, struck-by accidents, electrocution, and caught-in incidents. In addition, common construction site hazards include falls from heights, trench and scaffold collapses, arc flashes, and not wearing proper personal protective equipment and gear. When you have construction procedures that keeps an eye out for and protects against these hazards, you keep workers safe and the project on schedule.
Every professional contractor places safety as a top priority to protect workers and visitors. Safety training should be on-going with a safety director scheduling regular training to keep crews aware of the latest practices. OSHA provides current safety requirements, and this list should be reviewed regularly to avoid fines and keep workers and visitors safe on a construction worksite. In addition, all new employees need to go through thorough safety training to assure they adhere to OSHA’s and the company’s procedures.
