Demolition is a crucial aspect of the construction industry and it is essential to execute these projects with utmost care and precision to avoid unnecessary accidents. Industrial demolition is a specialised field that involves the careful dismantling of large, complex structures such as factories, warehouses and industrial plants.
In this blog post, we will explore into the safety measures implemented by industrial demolition companies, such as Brajkovich Demolition & Salvage, to securely carry out challenging projects. By adopting these precautions, these companies can ensure the execution of such projects without encountering any potential risks or hazards.
Types of Buildings and Structures That Can Be Safely Demolished
Regardless of the type of building or structure, safety must be the top priority when planning and executing demolition projects. Brajkovich Demolition & Salvage are experts at safely demolishing a variety of buildings and structures, including but not limited to:
- Factories and manufacturing plants
- Warehouses and distribution centers

Conducting Industrial Demolition Site Assessments
One of the first steps in any industrial demolition project is conducting a site assessment. This process involves identifying potential hazards such as hazardous materials, unstable structures and other risks that could pose a danger to workers and the environment. By assessing these risks, we can develop a comprehensive safety plan that addresses potential hazards.
Training and Certification of Workers
Industrial demolition services require skilled workers who have experience in handling heavy machinery, power tools and other equipment. To ensure that workers are adequately trained and certified, we provide training programs to our employees. These programs cover a range of topics, including equipment operation, safety procedures and emergency protocols.
Use of Proper Equipment and Protective Gear
Industrial demolition projects involve the use of heavy machinery, power tools and other equipment that can pose a danger to workers if not used properly. To mitigate these risks, we’ll ensure that our workers have access to the proper equipment and protective gear. This includes helmets, safety glasses, earplugs, gloves and other protective gear designed to protect workers from potential hazards.
Industrial Demolition Services and Environmental Protection
Industrial demolition services can have a significant impact on the environment and it is essential to take steps to minimise this impact. Brajkovich Demolition & Salvage work closely with environmental experts to identify potential environmental risks and develop strategies to mitigate these risks. This includes proper disposal of hazardous materials like asbestos, minimising dust and debris and taking steps to prevent water and air pollution.
