When working in an already occupied area, operatives must take care to protect existing fixtures and fittings. Particularly if the project is taking place in a house or other residential property, it is important to show consideration to the occupants.
Project leaders and operatives should ensure that furniture and other personal property in the vicinity of the work is protected. For instance, sofas should be covered with a cloth to prevent dust and other debris accumulating on the surface.
Protecting fixtures and fittings ensures a good working relationship with the client and residents while also keeping the site clean and tidy, which projects a professional appearance and makes post-work clean up much easier.
