Job Safe - For All of Us

Pre-Job Planning:

  • Conduct a pre-construction Job Safe meeting.

Placing Your Order:

  • Specify job address and directions to job... are there any private bridges that will be crossed?
  • Indicate names of building and job site landmarks
  • Communicate type of job and method of placement
  • Schedule accurate start / stop time – think about traffic and congestion

Preparing for Delivery:

  • Ensure clear access: Placement of equipment, vehicles, construction materials, etc. are clear of entry, wash-down and exit. Look for overhead obstacles – phone & power lines, trees, awnings...
  • Maintain safe distance to excavation (1 foot for every foot of depth)
  • Prepare level, stable ground for truck access.
  • Use pumps where practical
  • Our drivers will not cross non-rated or under-rated bridges

Day of Delivery:

  • Plan for traffic control – street and jobsite
  • Use spotters where needed – use proper hand signals
  • Identify and maintain washout areas including area lighting, consider glare if lights are pointed towards backing mirrors.
