Tips to Use While Performing Workplace Safety Measures

Tips to Use While Performing Workplace Safety MeasuresSafety always comes first

Regardless of industry or field of activity, workplace safety should always be a priority. It’s about keeping employees healthy and workable as well as avoidance of legal risks. Many business owners and safety managers are looking for new and updated ideas and tips to keep daily workplace safety. Here are some of them.

– First-aid training with visual demonstration. Do not limit employees to one theory. Let them see with their own eyes and try basic first-aid activities. Also, remember to check and restock the first-aid kit regularly.

– Keeping tidiness and cleanliness. It is not only a matter of convenience and pleasantness of work but also a part of safety. For example, littering and cluttering a space can restrict access to emergency exits or firefighting equipment. Also, slippery, dirty, or sticky floors can contribute to injuries.

– Special attention to storage and labeling of hazardous materials. This goes for various combustible and volatile materials, chemicals, solvents, products, paints, and more. This is often overlooked. However, even a small leak can cause a serious problem.

– Use of appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment). Each hazardous activity must be performed exclusively in equipment designed specifically for it. Moreover, the PPE should be checked regularly for signs of wear or damage and instantly replaced if necessary.

– Use of special safety inspection apps. Such apps simplify and accelerate inspections of firefighting equipment and safety precautions’ compliance. Also, this is a great opportunity to get rid of paperwork in this task.

Top Risk Factors in Construction and How to Prevent Them

Top Risk Factors in Construction and How to Prevent ThemAll construction projects carry some level of risk. Proper planning, regular reporting, and being able to make good decisions quickly can help avoid the risks and contribute to the successful completion of projects, higher profits, and the ability to grow and expand the company.

Keep abreast of the following points

Here are the common factors to watch out for on construction projects to not allow them to become a problem and derail the project:

Poor productivity. Often the reason for this lies in poor project management and poor resource allocation. A good project manager is certainly extremely important, but it is also important to give him the right tools to build and maintain an effective workflow. Accurate and timely data, as well as constant visibility and awareness are the key to high productivity.

Delays and interruptions in supply. This is a reality in the construction industry and it is unlikely that it can be completely eliminated. However, a timely and quick response to such situations can help mitigate the negative effect. Thereby, managers can quickly take a number of measures to reduce equipment downtime and prevent overpayments.

Health and safety hazards. Construction is a dangerous industry in terms of injuries and general safety. In addition to the potential harm to workers, a serious accident can cause work to be stopped or delayed and lead to a failure of the whole project. Therefore, it is extremely important to maintain a strict safety policy and control everything related to this. It is also one more factor requiring a constant flow of accurate data.

Winter Maintenance Tips for Construction Heavy Equipment

Winter Maintenance Tips for Construction Heavy EquipmentSome extra attention required

Construction heavy equipment requires constant and thorough maintenance, especially in the winter season. Some extra attention and precautions can help face freezing temperatures and hazardous weather, prevent breakdowns and financial losses. Here are some tips to consider.

Proper lubrication of engines. The cold temperature affects oil’s protective abilities. Usage of the oil that doesn’t protect the engine parts may lead to accelerated wear. Choose special winter lubricant oil and keep this point under control.

Proper coolant proportions. Coolant should follow recommended winter guidelines. Ensure the equipment has a 60 to 40 coolant to water ratio. Keep coolant balanced during the entire winter season.

Tires protection and proper pressure. Tires should be checked for the proper tire pressure and wear marks. Adhere to the guidelines of the manufacturer relative to the required pressure. It is better to use snow tires to have more pull in snow and on ice.

Proper and careful handling of the battery. Even well-functioning batteries experience strain during the winter. The electrolyte of the battery should be filled up to the indicated level. Allow the battery to heat up to at least 40 degrees before using the heavy equipment. Never charge or jump-start a frozen battery.

Regular inspection. Regular inspections are an essential way to track construction heavy equipment’s condition and catch any wear before it leads to serious and expensive issues. Mobile inspection apps are the best tool to perform fast and efficient inspections right in the field. Also, it is a perfect opportunity to keep all past inspections at hand and instantly share any data with other specialists.
