Housekeeping on the job
Lets look at housekeeping like spring cleaning, but on a daily basis.
Housekeeping is not "rocket science", it's plain common sense. If a jobs site looks like a mess. There is probably a hazard or two that could be a safety issue.
When you look at a glance and see trash and loose items scattered about, that's your clue that something may cause harm. If tools, equipment and materials are not piled and organized it can present many issues. These things could cause harm if left unattended. It also shows the owner that we are not being responsible enough to take care of our tools, materials and equipment. The loss of scattered materials because we left them out in the elements; or we drove over them with equipment, etc. This too would mean additional expenses would be incurred on the budget probably at the owners expense..
It could present a problem for visitors and/or co-workers passing through an area who could slip, trip or fall and get hurt as well.
Make sure they rack pipe, make piles that won't topple, have good lighting; make sure all path/walkways are kept clear, etc .
If this is done on a daily basis by all subs, it will be easier and less costly for everyone.
Lets have a good safe month and go home the way we came, if not better!
