The health and safety benefits of steel construction
The benefits of health and safety in steel construction are often overlooked in favour of cost savings, sustainability and efficiency. However, as health and safety is an important business driver in construction, we thought we’d outline some of the benefits of choosing steel for your next construction project.
- Steel buildings are erected by experienced, fully trained and highly skilled specialists. In order to construct steel buildings within regulations, steel building contractors much hold industry recognised qualifications which cover the design, fabrication and erection of steel buildings. As a result, the steel elements required to create the ‘skeleton’ of a building are designed to be assembled quickly on site. In addition, unlike concrete, these steel framed components are at full strength once they have been completed, allowing for safe immediate access by other trades.
- Because the fabrication of individual steel components is carried out off-site under strictly controlled factory conditions, on-site construction time is significantly reduced. In addition, as steel components can be pre-fabricated into ‘modules’ the need to work at heights is significantly reduced.
