Excessive noise and cold weather conditions can present major health hazards for construction site workers, and have a negative impact on projects and their deadlines.
Construction noise can create issues that lead to safety risks and damaged hearing, both to site workers and the general public nearby. Hearing damage is permanent and has been linked to irritability, fatigue, stress, depression, impaired memory and reduced work performance.
To be effective in managing excessive noise, work methods should be addressed first, and then specialist equipment put in place to control unavoidable noise generated.
Our free downloadable posters will help highlight the need to protect workers' hearing, for the benefit of all on site.
Cold weather creates two implications:
The winter months bring cold, wet, damp weather, causing all sorts of potential delays to site activities. It's essential to have an effective drying-out programme in place, such as using oil-fired heaters that produce a fume-free, clean, dry heat – all from one appliance – to minimise disruption.
On top of that, cold weather brings health risks to the workers and those in the vicinity of site tasks. When the temperature drops significantly, the body's resources focus on keeping warm, shutting down 'less-needed' functions. The result can be a loss of concentration and the inability to carry out tasks safely, creating an environment open to serious accidents.
Our free downloadable poster promotes the importance of staying warm to avoid such accidents, and ensure projects run to schedule.
