Commercial companies have to adhere to strict health and safety guidelines, domestic skip hire isn’t necessarily governed by so many regulations but safety is still crucial. In order to have continued increased levels of safety, there are a few things to bear in mind next time you hire a skip.
Before the skip arrives, prepare.
Prior to your skip being delivered you’ll have to consider where it is that you are going to put your skip. It requires being positioned on a flat surface and in an area that does not have any obstructions. This is to make it easier for you to load your rubbish into the skip but will also deter you from causing injury or harm to those around you.
Consider Public Safety
If the skip has to be located on a public road be sure that you notify your chosen skip hire firm as the skip may need safety equipment and a permit. They will make sure these are arranged for you.
Delivery of skip
On the day of your skip, give the delivery driver clear instructions in relation to where the skip should need to be positioned. Make sure this space is clear from any obstructions and that no persons, pets or children are in the area.
Once the skip has been delivered don’t try to move it. They are extremely heavy and doing this may cause injury or harm your property and the skip itself.
Load the Skip Carefully
When loading up a skip it is best that you load bigger and heavier items first with lighter things on top. Smaller items or materials like soil will have to fill the spaces in and around these larger items and it is a more efficient way of filling the space.
