Demolition Safety: Structural Shoring and Bracing

Demolition Safety: Structural Shoring and Bracing, NYC

Demolition and dismantling require trained workers with a strong grasp of physics concepts like fulcrum, shear, balance, moment, pressure, electrical and mechanical energy, weight, density, pinch points, and leverage. Safety can be in jeopardy if workers don’t have a strong understanding of physics and related cause-and-effect. Many demolition and dismantling projects occur mere feet from adjacent structures that must be protected, as well. 

Accidents can happen in a split second without proper support during demolition of floors, walls, ceilings, roofs, and mechanical piping conduit and equipment. It is absolutely critical to provide appropriately-sized temporary supports, knee bracing, and shoring to prevent a break or collapse and avoid a domino effect. All must be properly fastened or tethered to prevent slipping or kicking out when weight is shifted. Floors are often reinforced from below to accommodate heavy equipment or live loads in structures under demolition. 

OSHA provides guidelines for shoring and bracing, but does not take the place of a competent, experienced workers. R. Baker & Son strictly adheres to all demolition and dismantling regulations and all Baker team members are fully trained in shoring and bracing regulations, techniques and safety.
