Storage tanks are an important part of varied industries. Different types of storage cisterns and tanks can be generally found at construction sites, manufacturing plants, and similar locations. Depending on the size of the manufacturing plant or the construction site, businesses can select the types and number of tanks they require. Companies who especially need tanks for storing water, selecting steel tanks can be an appropriate option. These tanks made from steel not only last longer, but they also do not require much maintenance. Read the following points to understand the varied benefits of choosing steel tanks over concrete ones:

At most construction sites, there are several activities that are simultaneously carried out on a daily basis. Some of these activities require personnel to lift heavy machines, equipment’s, building materials, etc., up to a considerable height. This task requires construction businesses to use particular types of heavy lifting machines such as cranes, strand jacks, hydraulic pumps, etc. These machines make it considerably easy for businesses to carry out such activities. This can contribute towards improving work efficiency at the sites, and overall help to achieve good quality building and other man-made structures.

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.

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:
