Being from New England means that a project doesn’t start and end in the warmer months of the year. Cold weather and winter take up a majority of our time, and being prepared for it is essential to running a successful site and business. Though we hear all about how our motorized construction equipment needs to be winterized, there are plenty of other ways to prepare your construction site for winter.
The biggest concern regarding winter is precipitation, and that comes in a variety of forms. Rain, snow, sleet, and hail are all possible weather forecasts and adapting this to your location can help provide a safe environment that is also legally suited for work. Erosion and sediment control are a large concern, and require a soil stabilization plan to protect both your project, employees, and surrounding areas from the dangers of erosion.
Have plans set into place before the weather becomes an issue, such as where to place snow after a big storm. Knowing were drainage areas exist, and working with them instead of against them can promote a stronger foundation under both your project and under the equipment your team is using.
When it comes to scaffolding, ladders, and other equipment being used to work through those cold months, Nation Wide Ladder can help you determine what you might need for a safe job site. With our expertise and quality equipment, you will have multiple instructions to helping you create a safe and conducive work environment for all on your site.
