Scaffolding, ladders, floorboards, makeshift stairwells, these are the essential materials that make up the construction site. But not quite. It could hardly be a safe space from which to work from if your temporary stairwell was merely makeshift. That would be a recipe for disaster. And speaking of all the construction safety supplies that should form an integral and important part of the building construction site’s inventory, do not forget that safety materials are not confined to these mounting and steadying materials.
Oh, and what about the requisite barricades? Nevertheless, compulsory building safety materials very importantly include those that are worn by the building construction worker, from the laboring digger to the shift supervisor to the on-site architect, and even to the building construction project’s client. It goes without saying that state and federal legislation gives clear guidance on the compulsory nature of these attributes. But it hardly requires reminding. Fortunately, company owners and their followers have more than enough initiative and responsibility.
It is by now a matter of habit, never forced, just doing what comes naturally. Arriving on time for his next shift, the construction worker instinctively places a reflective bib over his protective clothing and matter of factly tops his crown with his protective helmet. And depending on the nature of his work, he’ll be donning those protective goggles too. While all the men are hard at work, there will always be those on the perimeters.
These are the men and women who monitor the ebb and flow of all activities that make up typical building construction work. They are your safety and security standard bearers, beacons of hope if you will. Finally, all building safety materials will only be put to work once officially certified. Safe to use.
