An Assured Equipment Grounding Conductor Program (AEGCP) is imperative for the protection of field employees from accidental electrocution, protecting against ground-fault current flow through the body. An AEGCP is now mandatory for most projects and, correctly implemented, will keep workers safe while using power tools, ensuring that conductive surfaces which may become energized due to line-to-ground faults and with which personnel may come in contact be properly grounded. When proper grounding methods are followed and a line-to-ground fault occurs, the low impedance path would allow resulting current flow to be large enough to be detected and removed , de-energizing the conductive surface subject to contact by personnel, and removing the shock hazard.

Employees performing demolition, remodeling, and even maintenance activities may be at risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens, especially while performing tasks related to plumbing, pipefitting, and utility work.

Gadzoom's Crystalline Silica Exposure Control Plan is intended to meet the requirements of the Respirable Crystalline Silica Construction Standard (29 CFR 1926.1153) established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). It was developed as a guide to prevent employee exposure to hazardous levels of Respirable Crystalline Silica that can result through construction activities or nearby construction activities occurring on worksites. Work involving chipping, cutting, drilling, grinding, or similar activities on materials containing Crystalline Silica can lead to the release of respirable-sized particles of Crystalline Silica (i.e. Respirable Crystalline Silica). Respirable Crystalline Silica exposure at hazardous levels can lead to lung cancer, silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and kidney disease. Many materials found on constructions sites include Crystalline Silica; including but not limited to – cement, concrete, asphalt, pre-formed structures (inlets, pipe, etc.) and others. Crystalline Silica is a basic component of soil, sand, granite and many other minerals. Quartz is the most common form of Crystalline Silica. Consequently, this program has been developed to address and control these potential exposures to prevent employees from experiencing the effects of occupational illnesses related to Respirable Crystalline Silica exposure.

Using Construction Technology to Expedite Your Project

The construction industry has lost valuable time on projects due to the coronavirus crisis, making it more pressing than ever to conquer administrative mountains - quickly. As each state begins to open up and construction companies can commence operations again, time is of the essence in getting each and every project underway. Pre-construction safety and admin submittals requiring approval can create sizeable roadblocks to the start of construction operations. Unknown to some, advanced construction technologies do exist that make the creation and management of construction safety and administrative documents easier and faster than ever before. And thousands of construction companies are using them!

What’s the Difference Between OSHA and EM 385-1-1 Requirements

We often talk about how Gadzoom’s construction documents are both OSHA and EM 385-1-1 compliant, but what does that mean, exactly? These guidelines represent standards on worksite safety for commercial and government sectors. Essentially, think of them as a comprehensive list of rules for which projects must be conducted under to ensure workers are protected when on the job. At first glance, they sound so similar that it’s easy to assume they may be identical. But after taking a deeper look, the differences start becoming more evident.

Construction Documentation: Cut Costs & Increase Quality

Creating and assembling effective construction administrative and safety documents is difficult, to say the least. Whether it’s an Activity Hazard Analysis or a Quality Control Plan - as a contractor, you’re constantly on the hook for meeting and exceeding the expectations of your client while meeting all applicable OSHA and USACE EM 385-1-1 regulations. Before an employee can ever step foot on the job, you are required to provide proper documentation addressing each and every task under your contract. These documents can take hundreds of hours to put together, costing your company a lot of time and money… Resources which could have gone towards doing the job you were hired for instead.
