Dumpster Safety Tips in Spanish Fork, UT; Best Place to Put a Container, Keeping Children Away & More
Dumpsters help make maintaining a site or cleaning up a site much more efficient. With a dumpster on site you can immediately throw away waste and trash. As dumpsters are often used to clean up after major projects such as remodeling, renovation, yard waste and construction sites, it helps to consider a few safety tips. Dumpsters are not dangerous by any means, but odd accidents can occur. With that in mind Rolys Dumpster Rental would like to share a few safety tips to help ensure there are no injuries around your dumpster rental.
Where is the Best Place to Put a Dumpster?
Where you have the dumpster placed is often determined by the project and how to get the waste or trash into the dumpster with ease. However, do consider safety when choosing where to place the dumpster. There can be a number of safety hazards nearby that can make throwing items into the dumpster more hazardous. For example, avoid having the dumpster near any electrical boxes or panels. If you need to have the dumpster placed on the side of the road consider driver visibility. You will want to have the dumpster placed so that drivers on the road can see you and the dumpster. This may mean avoiding placing the dumpster near curves or behind tall trees or bushes. Also consider the terrain and if there are any tripping hazards nearby.
Identify & Be Cautious around Dumpster Pinch Points
Dumpsters are completely safe when used properly. One of the essential elements to watch out for is the pinch points. When renting a dumpster, you will need to be able to safely access and throw away the trash, junk or waste. When throwing these items into the dumpster you do not want to injure yourself. This is want we refer to as the pinching points; the areas where you will need to load the waste and how you plan to load it. You may need to enter the dumpster from the gate and eventually throw the items around the edges of the dumpsters. Make sure you can easily throw away the waste without causing a strain on your back or body and without colliding or injuring yourself.
Keep Children & Pets Away from Dumpster
When a dumpster rolls off the truck, often kids will see a fort or an area to climb and play on. Where the dumpster isn't going to hurt kids, kids can hurt themselves when climbing and playing around on a dumpster. Often dumpsters have a large metal gate that swings open. If a children is in the path of the gate, the swinging of the gate can hurt them as well as pets. Additionally, depending on what you are putting into the dumpster, the waste can be dangerous as well. A dumpster is just not the safest place for children and pets. It is recommended that you keep both away from the dumpster.
These are just a few safety suggestions and recommendations when renting a dumpster. As each site will have its own set of challenges, it is important to keep safety in mind. For quality dumpster rental services, contact Rolys Dumpster Rental today.
