It's no secret that faulty or damaged materials on your job site can cause trouble for your company. Most of us have had to deal with the reality of damaged materials. Costs rise when unexpected changes in the weather, careless handling, and other job site incidents cause scratches, dents and dings.
Avoiding those issues altogether is the best way to preserve your budget and ensure you're able to deliver on time.
To help you stay on track and cover all your bases, we've created a Proper Job Site Maintenance Checklist. This guide gives you specifics on how to keep a job site clean. Keep this easy to read checklist handy so you can quickly reference it on the job.
Protecting materials and maintaining a clean job site sounds simple, but, to be certain you haven't missed anything, it's a good idea to keep a list on hand. We recommend separate lists for when you're receiving materials, leaving for the day, and prepping for severe weather.
When your job site and materials are not properly protected, you're taking a lot of unnecessary risks. Returning to work in the morning and finding that materials you need to finish your project have "wandered off" is a bad feeling that can be avoided. Always remember to lock up any items before you or your crew leaves the site.
Additionally, by not following all precautionary measures, you and your crew could be at risk of injury. At Mid-Land, we are passionate about safety and it is always the number one priority.
Job site accidents can have a long-term impact on the life of the injured individual and can also be a significant financial burden for your company. Having a record of accidents can make your company ineligible to bid on future jobs. Depending on the severity, it may be tough to bounce back following a major accident.
Whether you miss out on contracts or are tasked with paying thousands in workers compensation, missing a safety step will cost you. Read more about job site safety here!
It takes some effort, but practicing good job site safety and preventing material damage is important. That little bit of extra time today can save you precious time and unwanted costs down the road.
