A Jacksonville Commercial Demolition Company Focuses on Safety

Demolition can be extremely unsafe. With the correct safety measures in place, it is possible to reduce the risk significantly so employees and surrounding people stay safe at all times. ELEV8 Demolition in Jacksonville places a high priority on not just getting the job done effectively, but making sure safety is at the forefront of all employees' minds at all times. 

Demolition plans

ELEV8 Demolition understands the importance of planning ahead. Performing risk assessments and making sure each step of the demolition process is planned out are some of the most important parts of maintaining a safe environment. Sometimes unexpected issues arise, so planning ahead and making sure there are backup plans for unexpected issues is just as important.

Engineering Surveys

Before any demolition work can begin, it’s important that a survey is completed so the employees understand the integrity and condition of the building and the surrounding land. There would be no point planning a demolition project for a structurally sound building if it is going to collapse unexpectedly halfway through and cause a lot of damage along the way.

Health Hazards & Emergency Plans

When tearing into buildings, there could be hazardous materials that you were unprepared for, such as asbestos and silica. Whilst this cannot always be predicted, it’s important to limit the exposure to dangerous substances and have emergency back-up plans if the need arises.


PPE is one of the most important aspects of any job site, but particularly in demolition where materials are often falling from heights and landing haphazardly on the ground where people are walking. Basic PPE is required for all employees, but there may also be additional PPE required if there are hazardous materials present, such as asbestos, or if the employees are working at heights.
