Construction sites can be dangerous areas to work in, not only is there an inherent danger associated with the use of heavy machinery and other equipment which is necessary to create most of the projects that we need and use in our daily lives, there can also be a presence of site hazards such as the presence of granite and other substances which can cause harm. Fortunately, there are laws and codes of practise which minimise the risk of causing harm to the people and ensure that the work is carried out in a safe and conducive manner.
Hazmat is a quality dangerous goods consultant based in Australia. We provide quality services when it comes to the identification of hazards on site and have a capable team which can take care of the hazard; ensuring that it is dealt with in a way in which it does not pose any harm to anyone and also ensures that it is the best for the environment.
The geology of the ground is an extremely important feature when it comes to the techniques that may be used while constructing a project. This essentially entails the study of the ground beneath the proposed construction site. The presence of the material underneath the ground can not only have a significant impact on wo the building is going to be constructed; the amount of load it can bear, the type of foundations that are gong to be used and any other drainage equipment that may be needed, but it can also lead to health and safety implications. A good example to highlight this particular problem is the presence of granite underneath the site. Granite is a strong rock which is densely packed and is a good material to found the building on. It is much stronger than soil, in that, it has a bearing capacity which is orders of magnitude higher than conventional soil, so it can be used to found buildings which are subject to large amounts of load. Due to the nature of the rock, it also means that settlement of the building will be avoided and all in all, it would be an extremely favourable part of the land to found a building on. However, due to the processes involved in the creation of the granite, it does have a tendency to gve off Radon. Radon is a mildly radioactive gas, and although it is not very potent when compared to the conventional nuclear materials such as uranium, it still does give off radiation. In such a case, it cannot be left untreated and proper measures need to be taken to ensure that the radon being emitted is properly dealt with.
