Being a company focused on safety, we highly recommend and promote the following of proper safety protocols for workers on the site. Whereas our products can protect your business from every problem that’ll head your way, the least we can do is advocate for policies that can. So, let’s discuss a few safety protocols that should never be ignored on a job site.
Clear signage, barricades, and proper traffic control is a must for job sites that incorporate some form of moving traffic. Pedestrians and vehicles don’t mix well, so having signage helps both of those parties navigate the site properly. Barricades can help keep both pedestrians and vehicles out of place it’s not safe for them to be, and traffic control protocols help maintain a safe flow of vehicles throughout the site. Brahman’s products fit into this niche by providing a safe passage for cables and hoses across heavily trafficked roads.
Personnel visibility is also a key safety factor on jobsites. By wearing reflective and/or bright clothing, pedestrian traffic is easier to spot and can be easier to avoid collisions with. In the same category we can discuss safety in clothing. Aside from highly visible and/or reflective clothing, protective gear should also be worn. Hard hats are essential on any kind of job site to protect the worker from head injuries. Steel-toed boot are a smart add-on, as well, as they protect the feet from any falling objects. Safety harnesses, when necessary, should also be required on site.
The first step to a safe job site is safety regulations that are regularly followed. Starting with these rules and continuously upgrading your safety features, your business will continue to grow with success.
