When you have a construction job going on, it is your responsibility to ensure that you take all the steps possible to prevent theft, vandalism, and injuries. Along with having temporary fencing, one thing you can do to decrease your chances of having all three of these things happen is to make sure you rent a dumpster for the duration of the job. Here are just some of the ways a dumpster can help you to prevent these things from happening.
Prevent theft on the site
You may lock up all your equipment and think you have gone to extra measures to try to protect your materials. However, the more visible your site is and the more it looks like there is good stuff lying around, the higher the chances will be that you will have someone come onto the job site.
You may have materials that are trash that look appealing to a thief. While you may not mind them carting off some trash for you, once they are on the site looking around, there will be more of a chance that they will scout around for other stuff to steal. They may cut locks or break storage room doors to get at the good stuff once they are already on the property and this can lead to a huge loss.
Prevent vandalism on the site
When you leave piles of extra or old materials on the job site property, someone may come on the property to mess with those things. While anyone can vandalize, it is generally kids that like to do things like break fluorescent bulbs to hear the loud pop or try to break pieces of wood by jumping on it. While they are doing these things, they will be making a mess and causing trouble by leaving items like broken glass and other items lying around that your workers will need to clean up.
Prevent injuries on the site
When you have a dumpster on the job site, all of the old materials that can be thrown away can go directly into the dumpster. This is going to allow you to keep the job site property clear so anyone carrying materials from one location to the other won't trip over a pile and be seriously injured. Having a dumpster can even prevent more common injuries, such as stepping on a nail and having it go through a shoe and foot.
