Occupied Facility Safety Planning

November 12, 2019

While the rooftop presents contractors with its own set of safety hazards to be addressed in a safety plan, the grounds around a building present hazards as well. And if the building is occupied—as is often the case in reroofing and building exterior restoration projects—one of the most important components of a site-specific safety plan is the “traffic control plan”. The building’s occupants and visitors entering and exiting the building along with the safety of the contractor’s personnel on the ground are the primary considerations when developing the “traffic control” portion of the site-specific safety plan.

Inclement Weather Planning, Part I

August 20, 2019

Mid-way through another hurricane season, now is a good time to review the benefits of having an established Inclement Weather Plan. Mother nature can be unpredictable, and in the event you are having a commercial roof repaired or replaced, damage resulting from severe weather can add both cost and time to even the most well-planned re-roofing projects. For this reason, your roofing contractor’s policies and procedures should include an “Inclement Weather Plan”. And to protect your commercial property investment, you should request this plan from your commercial roofing contractor in advance of signing a contract for any roof work.

It’s a fact; commercial re-roofing projects are very different and are many times more complex than new construction roofing.

Here, we share what a good communication process looks like and offer up a case study that examines how open lines of communication helped mitigate unforeseen complications and ensure project success.
