Construction Safety at AHH

Construction Safety at AHHThere are so many benefits to working with the Australian Heritage Homes team. And while we’re not here to toot our own horns, we are here to champion our business practices and our teammates. We go above and beyond to work on resources like this blog, which ensure that we share the best information we can possibly source, with the community of those that mean the most to us.

We recruit the best of the best – those with passion, experience and the desire to continue to learn. Construction and building your dream home is a never-ending labor of love and we would not have it any other way. Complacency is the enemy of growth, so rest assured that when you work with the Australian Heritage Homes team, you are working with a team that will continue to challenge the norm and bring you the best dream home possible.

Today’s post is all about our most important asset, and one that we will always be the most proud of… our people. And that starts with construction safety. We are committed to always have properly trained workers on site.

Here are some of the common work-safe practices on construction sites that we ensure that we will follow on a daily basis at all times.

When we’re working with equipment – we ensure that everyone is properly trained. It isn’t just a paper handout, a Website to explore or one conversation. We know that our teammates learn best when it’s an extensive process and hands-on learning. We know that falls can happen if you’re climbing on and off of machinery, but that they’re avoidable if you know exactly what you’re working with. The same goes for operating machinery. We value our community of teammates and we never let a teammate operate unless they feel completely comfortable.

Ladders are a big piece of our work, and they can be scary if you’re climbing one for the first time, unsupervised and uneducated. Not on our watch. We make sure that our ladders are up to specifications in every different neighborhood and area that we work in. This means that they need to be the right height and dimensions, in order for you to do the right work and in the right way. Shorter ladders may be easier to find, but that doesn’t mean that they’re going to accomplish the right work.

Finally – we always make sure there is an up-to-date and accessible First Aid Kit on site at all times. It always has all of the necessities, because like we said – we care the most about our people and that they not only feel comfortable, but excited to show up to work each and every day.

Questions? We are always here for whatever you may need. Let us build you your dream house and let us do it right.
