Demolition Hazards

May 14, 2020 - May 15, 2020

Demolition involves additional hazards due to unknown factors which makes demolition work particularly dangerous. These may include:  -Changes from the structure’s design introduced during construction;
-Approved or unapproved modifications that altered the original design;
-Materials hidden within structural members, such as lead, asbestos, silica, and other chemicals or heavy metals requiring special material handling;
-Unknown strengths or weaknesses of construction materials, such as post-tensioned concrete;
-Hazards created by the demolition methods used.
To combat these, everyone at a demolition worksite must be fully aware of the hazards they may encounter and the safety precautions they must take to protect themselves and their employees.
