Things You’re Forgetting To Bring To Your Jobsite
Posted on September 5th, 2017 by American Ladders
Picture this: you’ve gotten to the job-site and you get to the back of your vehicle and open the door — but you’ve forgotten a few things. This might just be the worst feeling, but it’s not the end of the world. Truth be told, there are smaller components that are easy to misplace and forget — but at the end of the day, they’re also essential to getting the job done. Below are just a few that might be of interest to you and your next few projects.
Something that should be in everyone’s arsenal is an adjustable work platform. For specific reasons, this gives you benefits over using a ladder or scaffold for projects that are big enough to warrant equipment, but not large enough to bring out the big guns. With different height adjustments, this makes everything easy enough to do while providing you with a safe amount of space to work. Additionally, this does not take up too much space inside and can pose great benefits to your overall workflow!
While it might seem like an insignificant piece of material to have, a harness is one of the best friends you can have on the jobsite. Whether you’re working with a big tool set, or scaling high up on a scaffold or ladder, a harness provides you with the safety options you need, while not compromising the effectiveness of your work.
Lastly, a tool shelf can provide a number of benefits, which include safety and time reduction while working. Instead of not bringing everything up to the top which may result in multiple trips, this is a great way to bring your needs with you, as well as limits the amount of space taken up by stray tools on the steps of the ladder while you work (which is also unsafe)
Of course, performing a check is sometimes the best thing you can do before you leave, which can prevent this from happening in the first place. If you’re not equipped with some of these tools yet, it’s a good idea to make sure that you’re thinking about productivity at your next job and adding them to your band of tools!
