Lifting operations are fairly common on construction sites. These operations may be carried out manually or with the use of lifting equipment. Manual lifting operations can only be carried out for loads of a certain weight. Heavy lifting equipment must be used to raise and lower loads that are extremely heavy. Any lifting operation, whether manual or mechanical, puts workers at the risk of injury. Construction sites are vulnerable to accidents during lifting operations. This is why it is important to ensure workers’ safety during heavy lifting operations. Some tips to improve safety on a construction site are mentioned below.

We have chosen not to send Christmas cards this year, but are instead making a donation to the Médecins Sans Frontières / Läkare Utan Gränser. We hope that in the hands of MSF field workers, this support will help saving lives.

Slipform method can be used for a wide variety of constructions. This method is operated as suitable technique with regards to building constructions such as hotels and other residential buildings, chimneys, towers, etc. Use of slipform construction can be an effective method if all design purpose and architectural ideas are properly met with. The most important step of utilizing slip form construction method is to use stand up form for all vertical concrete. This method allows all other construction methods to form a balance (brighthubengineering.com, A NON-STEP METHOD FOR BUILDING CONCRETE STRUCTURES, 2011). Before proceeding towards construction work, ensure slip form method serves the purpose. There are few factors which lean towards slipform construction being an effective method. Mentioned below are few of these factors.

The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California, is an iconic landmark with a rich and inspiring history. Back when it was officially opened in 1937, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. In a time when bridge construction projects had a casualty rate of one person per 1 million dollars spent, this bridge had a robust safety record, in spite of the 11 people who lost their lives during the construction (Christopher Klein, History.com, “6 THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE”, 2012). Today, even a single person getting hurt fatally or non-fatally while working is unacceptable. The chances for such happenings have also reduced drastically because of the advancements in construction techniques, equipment, gear and safety protocols. When it comes to bridge building techniques, there are numerous ways in which companies can ensure safety is built into the project, from start to finish. There are two broad areas that must be kept in mind where safety is concerned:

According to a study in Sweden, physically demanding work such as repetitive or heavy lifting was associated with several unfavorable life-style factors. These factors included habits such as smoking and prevalence of overweight issues (Eleonor I Fransson, et el, ASSOCIATIONS BETWEEN PHYSICALLY DEMANDING WORK AND LIFE-STYLE, 2014). Hence, it is important for industries such as construction to encourage regular exercises among their workers. Businesses can also use appropriate heavy lifting equipment such as hydraulic climbers for convenience. 자세히 보기 →

Storage solutions are an integral part of many different industries and enterprises. Construction sites, agricultural bases, manufacturing plants, etc, all make use of different types of light and heavy storage cisterns and tanks. Depending on the size of a construction project, or the scale of a manufacturing plant, companies might require more than one tank or tanks made of different materials and built for different capacities.

Some of the most massive and expansive engineering projects in history have involved building bridges. Although the general physics of bridge-building have been established for quite some time, every bridge presents complicated factors that must be taken into consideration while building a bridge. Some of these factors involve the geology of the surrounding area; the amount of traffic expected, whether, construction materials, etc. Sometimes, these factors are miscalculated, or something occurs that the engineers didn’t expect, thus resulting in the bridge collapsing (ED GRABIANOWSKI, 10 Reasons Why Bridges Collapse, 2016). 자세히 보기 →
