The world of a new home construction site is an extraordinary one. It’s exciting, informative and well, pretty darn cool. They’re fascinating to visit, especially when the site under construction is your own. However, it can also be overwhelming and dangerous if you’re not familiar with the potential hazards of a work site.
During your Trico home build, you’ll be invited on three accompanied site visits throughout the various construction phases of your new home. On your tour, you will be walking around a working construction site that can normally only be accessed by experienced personnel with appropriate safety equipment.
Here are a few simple guidelines to ensure your visit is a positive experience:
- Before any site tour, ensure that your Area Manager has discussed the potential hazards that may be present on site and that you understand them.
- Be sure to ask your Area Manager what you should be wearing with regards to Personal Protective Equipment (i.e., hard hat, safety glasses, and steel toed shoes).
- Under no circumstances are children under the age of 16 permitted on the construction site.
- Never be afraid to ask your Area Manager questions with relation to your personal safety. Nothing is a small issue where your safety is concerned.
We want to you to discover, enjoy and appreciate the work and the craftsmanship of our trades, and ensuring your safety is the first priority in making sure you do so.
