Everyone is aware of the importance of safety in a work place, especially when workers are directly exposed to potential accidents.
Construction sites, while they represent the birthplace of a new building, also present risks for the workers involved – from labourers to engineers, inspectors, and even bystanders. It goes without saying that in order to prevent an accident, site managers should always take safety measures to protect these stakeholders, as well as their machinery and equipment.
Working surface for fork lifts
Forklifts are often used for moving materials from one place to another, on construction sites, and can help a worker lift, remove or lower objects of different sizes.
There is a great variety of forklifts on the market and each can be subject to the potential for accidents. For instance, a sit-down high-lift rider truck which is counterbalanced also has more chances of being involved in an accident than a motorised hand truck, simply because the first one can lift a weight much higher than the second.
Providing a safe, level and stable working surface, like our Hexapro flooring, for forklifts will greatly reduce the likelihood of accidents and injury.
A ground cover for a variety of applications
When building a temporary structure, such as a warehouse, a hangar used for storing an aircraft, or storage tents, a key consideration is choosing the proper ground cover system. An ideal ground cover has the ability to maintain the safety of workers and to provide, at the same time, stability for all the equipment that is stored inside the area.
In these situations too, Smart Track’s Hexapro, is an excellent flooring solution which provides a stable surface and working area for workers, for their equipment, and all the other vehicles. Also, it succeeds in protecting any grass beneath it, so that when the work at the site is completed, the ground will look as fresh as when the project commenced.
