The Danish winter is approaching, and with it comes the challenges of maintaining productivity and safety on construction sites all over the country.
At the same time, the rules for winter measures in construction came into force on October 1st.
Therefore, now is the time for you to think strategically to avoid interruptions and ensure that your construction project can continue without being challenged by the weather’s whims. One of the key components of this strategy is the use of covered work platforms, and this is where Platform.as comes into the picture.
Craftsmen’s best friend in the winter months
For craftsmen, the covered work platforms provide a range of valuable benefits. First and foremost, they work in dry weather, which not only increases comfort but also productivity. There is no need for breaks due to rain, so work can continue uninterrupted under the cover, while other colleagues on the construction site must seek shelter from the weather.
The covered platforms also protect against wind, as well as helping to retain heat. This means that craftsmen do not stand in the draft and get cold muscles and joints. This significantly reduces the risk of work-related injuries. The overall result is greater well-being and fewer sick days when people are not exposed to adverse weather conditions.
Building materials and tools can also be stored dry on the mobile workplace, which reduces waste and has a positive impact on the total costs. And not least, craftsmen avoid a lot of unnecessary frustrations due to damaged materials and tools.
Progress in construction and positive craftsmen
Contractors also have much to gain by renting covered work platforms in connection with the execution of winter construction. Firstly, these platforms ensure stable progress in construction, regardless of the weather. This means fewer delays and thus a schedule that proceeds as planned.
The benefits of fewer sick days also apply to contractors. Employees who work in a comfortable and dry environment have a reduction in the number of sick days, and they are more likely to be satisfied and effective.
