There are many things to consider while building a home, but I think the most important of which is that you got to be safe.Being safe is a very important tool that we have to have at our disposal, because if we do not have it, or choose not to think about it, then that is when injury can happen that is either small, or even worse life-changing or life-ending. For me, I think the most important thing is that we have people who are ready to be safe, and are ready to be able to follow safety standards properly. Then, and only then, can we actually build a house, or do tradesman work, without apology.
Okay. So we need to know what it means to be safe on the construction site do we? Alright, well I have several thoughts on how this can be achieved. Firstly, and of course without a doubt, we need to ensure that people are wearing hard hats, and are always strapped in when they need to be. When I was working with a prefab home manufacturer to build my home, I watched what they did. It was interesting to see how they always made sure to be safe.
Safety does not just mean with homes though. it also counts when talking to any Ontario cottage builder about how they prepare for safety. It is always in the best interest of everyone.
