Rigging, Dismantling & Demolition Project Safety

Danger sign for rigging, dismantling & demolition site

Safety is the number one priority on every R. Baker & Son project, from dismantling, rigging, and demolition, to plant decommissioning, plant relocation, and environmental services. Safeguards that protect workers and the general public from fall hazards, falling materials, unstable structures, and other dangers inherent in construction should be established before a project even begins. 

One of the first steps in securing a job site is erecting a fence or barricade around the work zone to prevent people from entering, either purposely or accidentally, and posting clear warning signs that work is in progress. There are strict OSHA guidelines as to what actions and precautions must be taken for specific types of hazards. This can include floor holes, wall openings, and railing systems. All holes should be boarded or otherwise covered, and steps should be taken to prevent accidental removal of these covers. Structural integrity standards must be strictly met, and any weakened areas should be braced according to regulations. 

R. Baker & Son recently completed a dismantling project at a manufacturing facility, we worked closely with the EHS director to provide a safe environment for plant employees as well as our own crew members. This was an operational facility, running three 8-hour shifts daily, with R. Baker & Son performing rigging and dismantling during one shift per day. Like most projects we do, hazards and safety concerns were constantly changing as the project progressed, so Baker crew members inspected the entire site and verified all areas were safely secured, illuminated, and marked with proper signage at the end of each work day. This included floors, walls, railings, elevated areas, walkways, and stairs. Each workday began with a toolbox talk and task hazard analysis (THA) to apprise crew members of the day’s activities to ensure that everyone was prepared and equipped with the proper PPE. The project was completed safely and within the allotted 3-week schedule to the customer’s satisfaction.
