Winter is coming and remember this is the West Coast of British Columbia.
You know what they say.
You can go skiing and play a round of golf all in the same day.
- Remember when your on a job site, wear your clothing in layers, and watch for excessive loss jackets, hoodies, or winter shirts. These can get caught in rotating equipment and tools.
- Always do your site housekeeping. One hour of snowfall can cover debris and uneven ground increasing the hazards for slips, trips and falls. Nobody wants a sprained or broken ankle.
- On a new concrete slab if ice starts to build up, we all know chemicals and salts will eat that new concrete right away. Sand or dirt coving just leaves a mess later to clean up. Try using coarse sawdust. Lightweight, very cheap to purchase, and it's biodegradable. Over time if conditions create a thawing and refreezing affect, scraping up old sawdust with the ice is a whole lot easier then sand and dirt. Above all, a fresh layer of sawdust produces great traction.
