Site Safety During Covid-19 Pandemic
By: Elite Additions
Here at Elite Additions, we are doing everything possible to make sure that everyone associated with our worksites are as safe as possible. Our director, Scott Meyers, has a young family and understands that we all need to do our bit to ensure that we all remain as safe as possible, "it's not necessarily for me, its for my family, friends and anyone else who may be affected by this".
We also recognise that there may be a point in time whereby we need to "shut up shop" and stop work for a period of time but for now, we will continue to get your projects across the line in accordance to the guidance of the authorities.
What Are Elite Additions Doing To Make Their Worksites Safe?
For the time being, we are enforcing social distancing, and making sure that tools are not shared.
We are enforcing social distancing on all of our sites. To ensure that this happens, we make sure that only one trade will be conducting their expertise at any one time. For example, if we require a plumber, tiler and electrician on site to start the finishing touches on a bathroom renovation, I'll make sure that there will be no contact between these trades and enough time in between so the trades do not overlap at any time.
Yes, this will mean that projects may take a little longer to be completed but the health of our carpenters, tradespeople, apprentices and most of all our clients always comes first.
Non-Sharing of Tools & Materials
At Elite Additions, we also encourage our project managers, carpenters and apprentices to all use our own tools. If there is a specialised tool, we are only allowing that one person to use it even though again, it may take a little longer to finish jobs on a work site. We have discussed with all Elite Additions employees and subcontractors that we are to minimise contact with others off-site to ensure we minimise anything we bring to the site in terms of potential viruses, and to remain home if/when they are sick.
Let's all do our bit and stay safe!
