Proper planning is essential to ensure a demolition operation is conducted with no accidents or injuries. This includes, but is not limited to:
  • An engineering survey completed by an expert before any demolition work takes place. This should include an assessment of the condition of the structure and the possibility of an unplanned collapse.
  • Locating, securing, and/or relocating any nearby utilities.
  • Fire prevention and evacuation plan.
  • First Aid and Emergency Medical Services, etc.
As much as it is known that certain accidents are unavoidable, with proper planning and precaution, certain accident incidents can be avoided.
