Dust Control: Construction work is dusty. We use plastic Zip walls, drop cloths and other protection to
contain dust and debris as best we can. We also clean as we go, as work allows. Some dust might
escape the work area. Please be aware that your house might need a bit more cleaning until the project
General Safety While in the Work Area
In general, no one who isn’t associated with the work should be in the project area while work is going
on, but there are occasions where it might be appropriate. Depending on the scope of your project,
here are specific safety guidelines that might apply to you when in the construction area.
Outside: Give large or noisy equipment lots of room. Assume that you cannot be seen or heard. Look
in the direction you are walking.
Stay six feet away from all excavations and please keep your children with you at all times while touring
Depending on what is happening, you might be required to wear a hard hat. We can provide one!
The dumpster is for construction debris. Other objects can be disposed of only with permission.
Inside: Please watch where you walk, there might be cords or other things on the floor. Just as when
you are outside, look in the direction you are walking.
Please leave ladders where you find them.
Steer clear of fresh work. Building materials such as paint, glue, or drywall compound can get onto
your clothes or skin and might not come off easily.
Adhering to these guidelines helps the job go safely and smoothly. We really appreciate your
help with this important aspect of your project.
