Keep Your Job Site Safe With Construction Waste Removal

Keep Your Job Site Safe With Construction Waste Removal

No business owner wants to have their employees hurt or injured on the job. And when the jobs are hazardous, keeping workers safe becomes a priority. 

Construction is a field that can be hazardous and requires a high degree of safety. However, the idea that construction waste removal can help minimize the dangers might seem odd to many people. 

Construction's "Fatal Four"

But, according to OSHA, out of the over 4,000 worker fatalities in private industry in 2014, at least 20.5% were in construction. In other words, one in five worker deaths last year were in construction. The leading causes of private sector worker deaths (excluding highway collisions) in the construction industry were falls, which accounted for 40% of the fatalities, followed by electrocution, struck by object, and caught-in/between.

These so-called "Fatal Four" causes were responsible for more than half (60.6%) the construction worker deaths in 2014,

Trips and Falls Can Be Avoided

A smart contractor is always looking for ways to reduce overhead and lower labor and material costs. In addition, finding ways of speeding up the construction process without sacrificing safety is an ongoing challenge. Any laborer that is hurt or injured can cost not only time, but money.

And smart contractors will work to be proactive with regards to best practices in safety management.

This includes ensuring that the construction site is kept as safe as possible, and part of this safe condition means being kept as clean as possible. While it may seem a minor thing to fall from a short height of say, a few feet, or to simply trip over some loose debris, these types of accidents account for the majority of fall injuries and deaths.

Falls are the Number One Cause of Construction Accidents

Almost half of all fatal falls are from 20 feet or less – and many are from less than six feet! Consider that the average person’s reaction time is about half a second, the time it takes to fall four feet.

And as you fall your impact force increases. So a 200 pound worker who falls six feet will hit the ground with almost 10,000 pounds of force!

By regularly cleaning and removing construction waste, debris and rubble you can drastically minimize the potential for trips, falls, and other related accidents.

Minimizing accidents on the job site will minimize paperwork, lost labor hours, and related insurance and medical costs. And, possibly, you will save a life in the process.

You Can Outsource Your Construction Waste Removal

The ideal set up for most construction projects is to schedule a series of waste and debris clean ups and removal. And by making use of a reliable professional firm the work can be scheduled and carried out with a minimal amount of disruption to the progress of the job.

In addition, outsourcing this task allows the contractor to keep his crew working on the productive aspect of the project.

Trash hauling and site clean-up might be considered “part of the job” for contractors, bit it really doesn’t have to be. When you consider that every hour your crew spends picking up debris, cleaning the site, and hauling and disposing of the material, is an hour NOT spent generating revenue on a project. And the bigger the job, the more the opportunity costs add up.

Add to that the possible costs of hazardous material disposal and even required training for your employees, the benefits of outsourcing these tasks become more attractive.

There is more to proper junk removal than simply throwing stuff into the back of a truck. Knowing what can be disposed of legally and where constitutes a large part of what makes a professional firm the better choice. And simply taking everything to the local landfill – assuming there is one – is not always the most cost-effective means of disposal. Recycling and re-purposing many items and materials is a responsible approach for a business to take.

Finding the Right Firm is Essential

Once you have made the decision that outsourcing a series of site clean ups is cost-effective and will increase the safety factor, you need to determine which firm is the right one for the job. And while you can certainly find plenty of guys with trucks willing to do a “cheap” job, going that route will end up being anything but cheap.
