Business Site Clearance
Before the commencement of any new building or landscaping work on your premises, it is vital that the current site is cleared thoroughly and with safety uppermost in mind.
You must comply with all relevant health and safety legislation to ensure any waste is removed and transported with the utmost care to ensure disruption to the broader environment is kept to an absolute minimum. Site clearance contractors must be thorough with the preparation of the chosen site and undertake a risk assessment of the premises to make staff aware of all on-site dangers before commencing work.
Make personnel and visitors aware of ongoing work.
Before any building work or clearance can begin, signs must be erected on-site to alert personnel and visitors of ongoing work. Anyone entering the clearance site must be reminded if any health and safety dangers are present. It is recommended to enforce the wearing of hard hats on-site at all times and to keep a reserve of hats for site visitors.
Some top tips:
Get advice on the best possible machinery to use
To save time and money, liaising with a local contractor is a good idea to discover the most suitable machinery to clear your site. Specific machinery will be more effective than others depending on the materials that need disposing of, so it’s imperative that you discuss with someone who’s been there and done it before. Better still, if you’re not confident operating the machinery to clear your site safely and effectively, you can always hire experienced demolition contractors to undertake the task on your behalf. These site clearance experts have the expertise and machinery to dismantle and strip out large areas for your business to utilise once again.
Consider the potential health and safety risks.
Always remember that the area you’ve earmarked for clearance for future building or landscape work must be free of any vegetation or construction materials before future work can be carried out. If not, these materials could harm the wider environment and affect how the land can be utilised.
Arrange for licensed transportation of scrap metals.
Suppose your business is undergoing a site clearance to make way for new and improved premises. In that case, you’ll want to ensure that all the scrap metals derived from the demolition work are taken away safely and efficiently, with no harm to the broader environment. Whether it’s old RSJs, old cabling, iron, scrap stainless steel or aluminium left within the shell of your property, Reclamet can swiftly remove it from your site and transport it to its licensed site for recycling or reuse. However, remember that you’ll need to categorise the items that need disposal correctly.
Reclamet Limited is licensed to clear your business premises of waste and recyclable materials for first-class assistance in the transportation of scrap cars and metal.
