Improving Site Safety 

In 2020/21, Health & Safety England reported that over 60,000 work-related injuries occurred on construction sites. Overall, 41% of these injuries resulted in over 3 days off work, and 25% of the injuries resulted in 7 days plus absence. 

Slips, trips and falls from the same level were one of the leading causes of injuries with 31%. 6% of the injuries were caused by handling, lifting or carrying objects. From these figures alone, it’s clear that safety measures on your construction site should be crucial. 

As a leading construction haulage company in Manchester, Braidwood can help significantly improve your site safety by removing waste to reduce the risk of trips and slips, removing and correctly storing hazardous materials to reduce the risk of accidents spills leaks and also educate your employees on the importance and risks associated with hazardous goods. 

Not only is the safety of your employees improved, environmental safety is upheld. By removing hazardous materials promptly and reducing the amount of waste heading to landfills, your business could be a pioneer for a greener and more environmentally friendly construction industry.  

Improving Site Productivity & Efficiency 

There is a huge range of ways a construction haulage company can improve your site’s productivity and efficiency. From saving money, time and energy to keeping your materials secure — here’s how Braidwood will improve your construction projects in 2024.

Saving Energy, Saving Money, Saving Time, Saving The Environment

Typically, construction sites will have smaller haulage vehicles to transport materials from site to site. This results in more trips being needed which as a result uses more fuel, having a larger environmental impact and even your reputation as a business. Not only is the environment affected, but the productivity of your team is massively hindered. Each trip results in your team having to load and unload the vehicles more often and with smaller loads. 

Here at Braidwood, we have a range of large goods vehicles on hand to help with your construction haulage. Our team and vehicles ensure optimum transport efficiency with larger loads and fewer trips as well as saving you money. 

A Clear Site Is a Productive Site 

The Braidwood team are experts in construction site clearance. Whether it’s demolition waste or hazardous materials, we can remove them. By clearing your waste and material as quickly as possible, your construction site will always have the maximum amount of space. Meaning there’s more room for vehicles, tools and equipment to be used safely and more productively.
