The Importance of an Asphalt Contractor Who Puts Safety First

Construction sites present immediate hazards to both workers and the nearby public. This is why safe work practices are so important and why you should only hire an asphalt contractor who puts safety first.

  1. Highway (Roadway) Safety: There are hazards that exist in every workplace. When that workplace is adjacent to speeding vehicles, those hazards are multiplied. Click Here to learn more.
  2. Equipment: The asphalt and concrete paving process require a lot of equipment, including heavy machinery and vehicles. This equipment should be regularly maintained and inspected for any issues.
  3. Materials: Contact with paving materials can result in burns and other injuries. Because of this, all employees should wear protective apparel – long-sleeved shirts, long pants, face and eye protection, and hard hats – when working. Additionally, high-visibility garments should be used, especially during roadside work.
