Modular housing solutions

Just when we think that we are making the most unique uses of some of the most mundane products we are reminded by history that we are not alone in our efforts to repurpose materials, even very large containers.

Although we may think that today’s creative use of shipping containers is fairly unique, we are not the first generation to make unique use of these structures. In fact, as far back as the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, the first appearance of a unique amusement ride made use of railroad cars that closely resembled today’s storage containers.

Supplies

Ensuring the safety of workers on-site must be a priority for all in the construction and maintenance sectors. Without appropriate safety mechanisms in place, a person can fall as far as seven feet in less than a second. While worker injuries have fallen over the last 40 years, this is largely down to improved material handling and fall protection on job sites, emphasizing the importance of such investment in safety. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has a set process to minimize dangerous falls and in so doing save lives. The three-step process comprises planning, providing, and training.

The provision of fall protection and the right equipment for material handling is a requirement especially for workers who are involved in work six feet or more above the ground, because the risk of se
