Construction Work Essentials

April 15 2021 - Classed as an essential industry during the coronavirus pandemic, the construction industry has grown from strength to strength over the past year and a half. If you are interested in running construction sites, then you have found yourself in the right place as this guide will outline all the different types of construction work essentials you will need before you can get started. Read on now in order to learn all about it.

Custom Uniforms

If you want to look professional on a construction site, then, no matter if you are hiring directly from your own team or using subcontractors, you will have to make sure that people are decked out in the company colors. A uniform helps to inspire camaraderie and a sense of shared purpose, which results in a desirable return on investment. If it gets too hot, then it is likely that the foreman will need a protective custom new era snapback that will keep them safe from the sun while looking stylish at the same time.

Safety Gear

Safety is extremely important on any construction site. Run through the checklist below to make sure you have all the necessary equipment in order to minimize the risk of injury on site:

  • Radio
  • Head Protection
  • Eye and Face Protection
  • Respiratory Devices
  • Hand and Skin Gear
  • Ear Plugs
  • Correct Shoes

Additionally make sure that all workers adhere to these clothes standards when they arrive on site. By making sure that you are taking these measures seriously, you will be far better equipped to deal with any challenges on site.

COVID-19 Policies

Given the dangers that the coronavirus has posed towards construction workers, it is vital that your company has coronavirus policies in place. Ideally, you should have a big supply of rapid tests that you can administer to your team in order to check daily for coronavirus. Also, make sure that you have hand sanitiser readily available as well as face masks, and make sure that you enforce social distancing on site. If anyone has any symptoms whatsoever, then be sure to send them home immediately with full pay.

Portable Cabins

When doing business, workers need somewhere to do their business. That's why it's very important to set up portable cabins that allow them to use the toilet while on the site. Make sure that you have enough portable cabins in order to stop queues from forming, while also making sure that the distance to the toilets is as short as possible.

Power Generators

Construction sites generally do not have a power source on hand, so you will have to bring your own generator in order to have power for the team. As workers on the site will not be able to do their jobs without one, it is essential that you remember to bring this along. Generally speaking, there are three types of generators that you might use: high-powered generators, between 200 kW to 2,500 kW; medium-powered generators, between 5 kW to 200 kW; and standby generators, which can work as a stopgap if the main generator breaks.
