Today, whether you are a small-scale startup or major industrial contractor, you really have no excuse left in the book. Because the resources are always there. If location and logistics were at issue before, just know that it is always possible, at any place and at any time, for you to obtain needed and often legally mandated construction safety supplies. Where you are challenged for distance, perhaps, you can now make first contact online.
You will be put in touch with an online consultant. All you need to do is the following. Give details of your exact location. Give details of the size, scale and contract details. Give as many specifications as possible. What type of building is being constructed? How close to public thoroughfares is the contract site? How close to public use roads is the site? And so on, and so forth. Also, it is necessary to liaise with local authorities about the nature of the building project and its projected duration.
And this is why. While it is incumbent upon the building contractor and his client to exercise responsibility and prudence in securing their material interests, relevant municipal or county officials need to come to the party. There can be no lackadaisical approach to delegating or deferring all responsibilities away from the county office. Public safety inspectors are on site to monitor the progress of the project.
And with the prime objective remaining that of making sure that the building site is public safety compliant. No matter how much stock is put in by proactive contractors and their clients, the official must always be on hand to utilize his required expertise and issue the relevant alert if needs be. And so it goes that it is always possible to maintain the safety of a construction site.
