When your project is facing a tight budget and even tighter deadlines, your team’s efficiency is the key to success. That’s why it’s important to periodically reevaluate your jobsite and workflow for opportunities to improve onsite productivity. Even minor changes like reorganizing tools or trying a new project management app can improve your overall efficiency and help you stay ready to work at an agile pace.
Below are five different ways to improve the overall efficiency of your jobsite, saving you time and resources so your team can stay focused and productive.
Provide More Safety Gear
Keeping your team safe and happy is essential to completing your project promptly. Insufficient safety equipment can result in more injuries that slow the project down and cause more stress to your team. Make sure to provide plenty of safety PPE, including protective gear for the eyes, face, head, hands and feet. Keep your supply of PPE well-stocked with plenty of extra equipment for when gear gets damaged or misplaced. This will help ensure that your team is always properly equipped when they get on the jobsite.
Prioritize Team Training
Prioritize regular training sessions for best safety practices, proper equipment usage and updated processes to improve your team’s overall productivity and safety onsite. Using the training resources on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) website, you can conduct effective training sessions that update your team on the latest standards, thereby reducing mistakes and injuries. This will equip your team with relevant knowledge for the job, helping them stay focused and efficient onsite.
Adjust Your Jobsite Layout
Clear project materials, tools and equipment from the jobsite to create more accessible pathways with the help of onsite storage containers. This will help clear unnecessary clutter from the site and make it easy for teams to get to their stations without delay. If needed, reorganize the main work areas that your team uses daily for maximum efficiency. Non-slip ramps and entrances not only make your offices more accessible but also allow for easy entrance and exit that get your team where they need to be quickly.
Make the Most of Your Space
Taking steps to make your site more accommodating and comfortable will help your team stay productive and stress-free. Onsite portable restrooms are one key feature for a comfortable site, allowing your team to stay close to the job. Optimize the inside of your office with comfortable furniture, spacious lunch and break rooms and ergonomic standing desks to keep your team equipped with everything they need to stay ready to work. For a more versatile workspace, consider adding a space management system to flexibly set up shelving, pipe racks, pegboards and additional desk space.
Use the Latest Technology
Organizing and managing your project efficiently will improve overall productivity and keep things moving according to schedule. Implementing project management and construction apps into your work process can make your entire project more agile and streamline tasks. Find the best project management app for your unique needs to ensure every stage of the project is clearly defined, tracked and managed.
