Cleaning up a jobsite is a big project, but we can help you tackle it with the right tools! The proper selection of tools, supplies and equipment is vital to get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Some Essential Jobsite Cleaning Supplies:
- Towels, rags & wipes
- PPE (safety glasses, nitrile gloves, dust masks or respirators, coveralls, boot covers, hard hats)
- Buckets & Lids
- Hand Pump Sprayers
- Shovels, Brooms, Squeegees, Mops
Be sure your crew is familiar with all risk factors on the job and is trained and familiar with the proper personal protective equipment (PPE). Remember, the potential existence of silica from concrete and other airborne hazards from lead, mold and/or asbestos will require respiratory protection be worn while cleaning.
Types of respiratory protection:
Half Facepiece Respirators - are reusable and have replaceable cartridges or filters. They cover the nose and mouth and provide protection against gases, vapors, or particles when equipped with the appropriate cartridge or filter.
Full Facepiece Respirators - are reusable and have replaceable canisters, cartridges, or filters. The facepiece covers the face and eyes, offering built in eye protection.
Disposable Filtering Facepiece Respirators - are disposable half facepiece respirators that filter out particles such as dusts, mists, and fumes. They do NOT provide protection against gases and vapors.
Powered Air-Purifying Respirators (PAPRs) have a blower that pulls air through filters, canisters, or cartridges. They provide protection against gases, vapors, or particles, when equipped with the appropriate cartridge, canister, or filter.
Supplied-Air Respirators are connected to a separate air source that supplies clean air through a hose. They can be lightweight and used while working for long hours in environments not immediately dangerous to life and health.
Do you need to wear a protective suit when cleaning up a jobsite?
Disposable protective coveralls are essential for any work environment where chemicals and hazardous particles are present. A coverall is the shield between you and the hazards.
