The efficiency of construction operations and projects located in remote areas are strongly impacted by ground conditions. Uneven, muddy or wet conditions can cause detrimental delays or even cancellation of work, resulting in significant commercial loss, such as loss of reputation, the effect on future workloads and unrecoverable management time loss. In addition, poor ground conditions are regularly held responsible for near misses and minor incidents on sites, but also more serious injuries. Within the construction industry, increasing issues with health and safety, the environment and property damage are making ground protection systems a must. Many other makeshift ground covers deteriorate quickly and can be unsafe and slippery.
Mats can assist in enabling access to and from sites, safe walkways or roadways as they provide a stable work area. They can also prevent environmental damage to the land, especially important when working on heritage site, sensitive ecosystems, agricultural lands, and also stop cross contamination between sites.
In the construction industry, you don’t always have the privilege of working on purpose-built sites, you may be working within an established location, for example, a school, road or park where damage to the surrounding area is a big no-no!
