Construction and building inspectors work around heavy equipment and machinery all the time. Despite the fact that they may not be doing any actual labor, they are still at risk for a number of serious injuries. Below are a few tips inspectors can use to remain safe on the job.
Wear Proper Safety Equipment
Steel toed boots, hard hats, goggles, gloves, etc. are a must when it comes to work sites that involve lots of equipment and heavy machinery.
Know The Tools and the Worksite
Despite the fact that you may not be spending the entire day on the worksite, it's important for you to understand the layout of the facility as well as how to use each of the tools the workers are responsible for using.
It's essential that you arrive at the jobsite well-rested and fully alert. Get plent of rest the night before and give the job your full attention. Be on the lookout for clutter, loose wires, falling objects, and wet floors. All of these problems can lead to serious injuries.
