Avoid carrying things, but instead use devices for the transport of tools and materials right through to the workplace.
Avoid the muddy access roads by removing pløre.
make Sure that the wires are hung up.
don't Shoot shortcut, but use the planned access routes.
the working environment authority reports that around a quarter of serious accidents in the construction industry due to the staff falling or tripping. One step wrong, the bum, then the accident happened and the employee can be forced to be flat on the along the next piece of time. Unable to work.

Therefore calls on the working environment authority in the strongest terms to all the time ensure that there is order at the construction site – even if the clean-up immediately may sound like a sour little work.
