Safety Tips for Homeowners During Construction

Whenever we start a new project here at Northfield Construction Company, we are thrilled to witness how excited our clients become with the process of building them their dream home.
Though it can be tempting to want to be around the project as much as possible, it is crucial that we remember job site safety during these important times. In this blog post, we will cover some of the main do’s and don’t’s when it comes to safety for homeowners and the construction of their new home.
  • If you ever intend on visiting the site, always alert your contractor before doing so.
  • Work could be underway at your time of visit, and if it is, make sure you check in with the Job Site Superintendent before access.
  • If it happens to be overhead work that is going on, the Job Site Superintendent should provide hard hats, so make sure that you are equipped with one.
  • Let the contractor know if you wish to visit the site after hours. During this time, it is especially important that you are mindful of the completed work that is already in place.
Overall, the main thing to keep in mind when it comes to the construction site is that it is just that: a construction site. Safety and timeliness are of the upmost importance, so try to minimize your visits to the site in order to ensure that work is getting done and your home can be properly completed!
