Magnetically Clearing Debris

Keeping site facilities clean and tidy not only improves appearance but can also reduce safety hazards.

Housekeeping is key to maintain the general tidiness of a construction site.

However it can also minimise the risk of safety hazards such as obstructions and debris.

One site managed the leftover debris with this simple technique:

  • The site had a relatively small car park which was magnetically swept each day to remove debris (nails, screws) and avoid potential tyre damage;
  • The equipment picks up any small metal debris when the handle is held down and then dropped once released;
  • The local public pay and display car park, which was often used by the contractor’s supply chain was also regularly swept.
