Back To School Modular Building Safety Tips

Each year as kids head back to school in modular and portable classroom buildings there are instances of unsafe site conditions. Here are a few tips to keep your project site safer and keep the children and staff out of the nurses office with avoidable accidents:
( 5 ) Great tips for safety:

1. If you have wall mounted mechanical units that usually sit 4' - 5' off the ground implement safety plan:
* Build a cage or designer box around the mechanical units (pretty also)
* Put in pipe bollards painted yellow to warn pedestrian traffic of possible danger
* Pull your sidewalks and walkways away from the modular building a minimum of 3' to remove the pedestrian pathway away from the mechanical units

2. If you have a ramp, make sure there is no rust or broken sharp edges that can cut or hurt someone
2A. Do a preventative walk through of your ramp & stair attachments & make sure the railings are attached, the welds are tight, skid resistant material fresh coating.
3. If your doors swing "out" paint a circle on the sidewalks so kids and staff can visualize the swing radius
4. If you have traditional steel doors consider adding a "view lite" small window so when opening a door you can see oncoming pedestrian traffic
5. Of course, the traditional fire alarm,fire sprinkler, & extinguisher equipment need to pass annual inspections
