02. Verify Work Site Safety
Verifying the safety of your employees, members of the public, and adjacent property during paving work is an important factor in limiting the overall liability of your business. You will want to walk through the safety and compliance practices of your paving contractor to ensure your work site remains safe and free from hazards.
Your contractor should walk you through their safety protocol, have verification of their trainings and certifications, and have proof of well-maintained equipment. They should also include details on their site clean up processes and preventative measures to limit future hazard. Remember to ask your paving contractor if they have documentation for proper care and maintenance and what their response plans are if the completed work is not up to standard.
Remember, limiting future liability starts with a strong foundation. Your paving contractor should have data on the longevity of the pavement and all corresponding concrete work.
