    Hi guys,

    i've decided to write an article based on my experiences working onsite, please tell me what you think:


    Wearing Protective Gear
    It is compulsory that you wear a high visibility jacket, steel toe cap boots and a helmet before entering a construction site. There are a high amount of potential hazards in this working environment, so it’s vital that you are aware of the dangers around you and wear the appropriate apparel for the specific tasks.


    Be Organised
    Working as a carpenter or joiner onsite involves many tasks. It’s vital that you have you have the right tools ready to do the job well and efficiently. Plan your time effectively so that you can complete your tasks on time.

    Read the Blueprints Carefully
    Every carpenter knows how important it is to stick to the plan shown on the blue prints. Any misjudgement of measurement or angle could cost the project a lot of time and money rectifying any errors made during the project.

    Drink Plenty of Water
    Applying labour intensive work onsite can be exhausting. Make sure that you are drinking plenty of water, especially during hot weather.


    Do not push yourself
    We all like to think that we can lift the heaviest objects by ourselves, but this can cause injury when tried. If you cannot lift heavy equipment then don’t lift it! Use the appropriate tools to elevate the item or ask someone to help.

    Summary
    The majority of time you are working onsite, you will naturally know what to do but if you are unsure, ask a leading member of staff or supervisor. It’s their job to help and support you whenever requested.

    We hope you have enjoyed reading this guide to working onsite and remember to look after yourself, especially during this incredibly glorious but hot Summer!

    Thanks!

    David

    At the risk of opening up some old and deep wounds...

    Doesn't CSCS cover this to a large extent?
