Site clearing is the first task of site preparation. The site must be cleared and in graded condition before starting any constructions works. Site clearing is the removal of obstacles that might hinder the construction process such as plants, trees, rocks or old infrastructures that must be demolished.
Here are some ways to manage the work and ensure the necessary safety and precautions for those involved during the process:
- Land clearing permit
Land clearing permit is required for certain site clearing activities within the city. Necessary documentation and agreements must be established to ensure that proper control measures are taken to avoid all hazards and damage beyond the boundaries.
- Workplace safety
Safety of workers and non-workers are utmost importance. Most accidents happen due to improper use of heavy equipments and explosives. Workers who have access to the site area must have a good understanding of safety measures.
- Project boundaries
Construction boundary fencing is an advantage as it helps to protect your site from unwanted entries and to keep your equipment and materials safe. Fencing on the premises is essential to prevent injuries and ensure that all workers and visitors are aware of any dangerous hazards on site. Furthermore, by marking the perimeter of the construction, all works will be done within the limits set.
- Removal of vegetation
Proper waste removal of existing native vegetation on the project area is important. All vegetation will be cleared which then be stockpiled and disposed of properly in accordance with the environmental regulations.
