Keeping Your Building Site Clean and Safe

Does your building site look like a, well, building site? Letting your building site get out of hand not only makes you work less efficiency, it can also be a health and safety hazard. Luckily, we’ve got some helpful tips on keeping your building site clean, tidy and most of all, safe.


Have designated tool storage

No matter what kind of tools you have on your building site, and how many, ensuring they are safely stored away in a specified spot is beneficial for a number of reasons. Firstly, having a designated area for your tools means every member of your workforce knows exactly where every tool they need is located, therefore increasing productivity and efficiency. Secondly, leaving tools lying around your building site is a sure fire way of increasing the likelihood of accidents. And lastly, you can easily account for missing or broken tools if they’re all in one place.


Tidy your waste materials as you go

Creating a designated waste area makes practical sense, especially if you’re working with hazardous material. Tidying as you go keeps your building site easier and safer to navigate, decreases chances of trips and falls and saves you time in the long run.


Create a separate break area

It’s essential that workers have a separate area that they can take breaks in and eat lunch. Not only is it more hygienic for workers to eat away from the dust and dirt of the main building site, eating and drinking can mean you get pests infesting your building site. Pests like rats or ants. It’s also essential to maintain a clean break area for hygiene reasons – sick workers means money lost on your project.


Avoid unnecessary obstructions

It is essential to keep all access routes, entrances and exits (including emergency exits) free from obstructions. If there are any blockages it could be disastrous in the event of an emergency. Making it easier for workers to move around the building site also increases work efficiency and reduces the chance of an accident.
