Storing materials and equipment safely

First off, let's agree that you won't bring any toxic materials onto your construction site. I don't need to tell you that, right? Not inviting rude guests to the party is the first rule. Still, even nontoxic materials can be hazardous under certain conditions. Follow these guidelines:

  • Keep fertilizers, paints, and chemicals away from waterways.
  • Be especially careful with tools; they can hurt. Keep them locked up or at least safely stored in one central location.
  • Take the keys out of heavy equipment when you're not around.
  • To the degree that it's practicable, place equipment, vehicles, and piles of materials in a part of the property that's paved. That way the ground pressure doesn't compact the soil or damage tree roots.
