Far too often do we read about the tragedies of buildings or homes catching fire in the Bay Area, burned with little left to salvage. However, how often do we hear of fires that happen before a building or home is even built?
Few people consider the hazards that a fire can bring to a building before construction is finalized, and the dangers of fires at construction sites are rarely noted. A fire is just as dangerous to an unfinished project as it is to a finished one. Not only do fires leave the building and structure compromised, a fire can burn through money, progress, hard work, and time. Fortunately, a fire can be just as easily prevented as it can be started.
Just as we all learned as children, a fire can be prevented by simply being careful and taking common precautions, such as not leaving on a welding torch when it isn’t being used or not smoking around the site. Since not all workers or individuals passing the site will obey these simple rules, the easiest way to make sure these rules are established and carried out is by hiring and assigning a team of security guards to the site. They will be able to prevent any of these mistakes before the happen. Click here to learn more about securing your construction site with corporate security in the Bay Area.
