IMPROVING JOBSITE PRODUCTIVITY
It’s no secret that a variety of factors negatively impact construction productivity. One of the biggest killers of productivity on the jobsite was wasted time.
Construction is an extremely important job for accuracy. However, clients usually want their buildings and projects done as quickly as possible.
This is why it’s important to stress productivity with your construction workers.
Maximizing productivity on a jobsite means working efficiently to control costs and stay on schedule. Projects that are completed under budget and ahead of schedule usually result in higher profit margins which is why construction firms are always looking to improve productivity.
The good news is that the study is shining a light on how improved situational awareness can help workers be more productive and companies more profitable.
At any given time, a worker’s focus is limited to what is right in front of them. Situational awareness is all about looking at each project as a continuum, considering the past and the future as well as the present. Letting workers see the whole picture results in better decision-making.
We will give you some tips to improving productivity at work.
Communication is the most important productivity booster in any job. No one will get the job done well if they have no idea what’s going on.
It’s important you clearly communicate your goals to your crew before you start a new project and continue keeping them updated throughout the project.
2. Set Realistic Goals
Demolition takes time so it’s important you set realistic goals. Make sure the entire crew understands the goal for each day, each week, each month, and even each year.
It’s important that people have goals to strive towards each and every day. Setting small goals makes a big project seem easier to accomplish.
3. Train Your Troops
If you want a work site the runs efficiently, you have to train your workers. Make sure they’re all trained before you begin a project.
Yes, this will often cost extra money but it will be worth it. Training also reduces the number of injuries on a job which will, in turn, increase productivity.
4.Plan with Purpose
Before starting a construction project you need to have a detailed plan laid out for how you’re going to accomplish the job.
This includes schedules for workers, materials needed, and countless other logistics.
The more thoroughly you plan your project beforehand, the better it will turn out. You also need to keep this plan updated to reflect on how the project is moving.
The layout of your jobsite can be a major factor in worker productivity levels. If jobsite layout is an afterthought or done poorly, you are facilitating poor productivity. You don’t want workers wasting time tracking down tools or traipsing all over the jobsite to get additional materials and supplies throughout the day.
Using the existing site plan as your guide, start laying out your jobsite in a way that makes the most sense logistically. Carefully consider where to set up areas for parking, material and equipment storage, toilet facilities, staging, jobsite trailers and tool cribs.
In addition to improving productivity, a well laid out jobsite also lends itself to a safer work environment. It’s easier to keep an eye on workers and monitor for safety hazards if you know workers are confined to specific work areas on the jobsite.
