3 Tools for Safe and Efficient Roof Inspections

3 Tools for Safe and Efficient Roof InspectionsA roof inspection is one of the most important parts of home inspection. Inspectors need the right tools in order to get their job done quickly, safely, and efficiently. Here are the main ones.

Ladder

The first thing you need for roof inspection is a ladder. Ladder safety is a priority since most accidents involve them. The ladder must provide enough grip so that inspectors don’t worry about balancing while climbing. Placing the ladder it is important to make sure there are at least two rungs above the gutter. It’s always a good idea to strap the ladder to the gutter with a safety strap. The load capacity of the ladder must be up to 300 lbs (136 kg). And of course, it must satisfy all OSHA and ANSI standards.

Roofing shoes

While climbing on the roof, inspectors must wear special roofing shoes. Such shoes must provide the required stability to not slip off and fall. The highlights to look out for are:

– thick and slip-resistant outsole,

– lightweight,

– shock-absorption,

– strong and solid outer material,

– good ankle support.

Hiking shoes can be a good choice for roof inspections.

Inspection software

The main purpose of roof inspections is to collect data for further decisions based on it. This way, inspectors need a tool to work with such data. The best way is the usage of special roof inspection apps. Inspectors don’t need to make any notes, they can easily and quickly fill in a pre-made mobile form with necessary fields.

Regular Reporting as Key to Keeping Safety at Construction Sites

Regular Reporting as Key to Keeping Safety at Construction SitesConstruction is one of the most dangerous fields to work

According to the stats of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, out of every 5,000 private-industry worker fatalities, 20 percent are in construction. This field is also related to many non-fatal injuries that cost companies millions of dollars per year. This way, construction site safety is one of the most considerable things during a construction project.

Managers must mitigate safety hazards to construction workers through some actions. Among them are awareness of all possible hazards, regular training, and testing of safety knowledge, provision of personal protective equipment, accounting for weather conditions, keeping construction equipment in proper safe order, constant communication, and regular reporting.

Constant awareness is a way to ensure safety

Snappii can help with two points: communication and reporting. Snappii construction apps allow users to establish a steady flow of timely and accurate data. This is extremely important for constant control of the issue of safety on the construction site and other important points of the construction project.

The Construction Daily Log app is the #1 reporting tool. The app includes a one-page collapsed mobile form with the fields for contractor details, site information, work performed, subcontractor progress, issues and punch lists, reasons for delays, additional work or change requests, materials purchased and received, labor, and travel hours, and more. The form can be filled in with the voice-to-text feature. Users can attach pictures and make any drawing right on them to highlight progress or show problem areas. After filling out the form, it can be instantly generated into the PDF report. All workers can instantly submit the reports in various ways and safely store them in the app. Managers, in turn, can track who has not turned their report in. The Construction Daily Log app is a small but powerful solution to keep everything under control and avoid incidents and any safety issues on the construction sites.

So, this is also an important reason for a thorough cleaning as well as carrying out regular site inspections. Hire a pest control professional if you need more protection.

2. Barriers and floor labeling

A disorganized warehouse also degrades workflow. Use some tools to make the workspace organized. Floor labels and markings are a simple and efficient way of organizing a warehouse. Mark flow of traffic and forklift routes, designate positions of various warehouse equipment and inventory, and more. Also, use barriers to cordon off certain parts of a warehouse and make moving easier, faster, and safer.

3. Recycling

More and more people nowadays think about environmental concerns and about their contribution to maintaining ecology. Running a “green” warehouse is quite popular nowadays. It is based on the 3R – reduce, reuse, and recycle. This principle is simple to implement and ensures better warehouse condition and maintenance as well as the image of an entire business.

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.
