PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)

Demolition and rigging workers need to have proper protection to ensure their safety and the safety of the job site. To provide that protection workers utilize PPE. Personal Protective Equipment, (PPE) can prevent employees from potential hazards associatedwith their workplace.

The minimum required PPE on a demolition or rigging project consists of the following items:

Hardhat
Safety Glasses
High Visibility Safety Vests
Leather Palmed Work Gloves
Work Boots

Depending on the project site and task being performed additional PPE may be required. The site supervisors evaluate the work task and perform hazard assessments to identify if additional PPE is required and to confirm that the appropriate personal protective equipment is being utilized to perform the work task at hand.

Examples of some work that would require additional protective equipment are as follows:

Work to be performed in a man lift or if a worker is 6’ from an edge would require a safety harness that is attached to a retractable. This would allow the employee to work safely and be 100% tied off at all times. If a worker is performing work utilizing a grinder or demo saw he would wear a face shield to ensure face protection and ear plugs for hearing protection.

The site supervisor trains or provides training to all employees to ensure they are familiar with the proper utilization of PPE and to ensure applicable safety procedures are followed.

Universal Wrecking Corp. is an expert building demolition / rigging contractor and scrap metal recycling company that operates throughout the United States. On every project safety is the #1 priority and the success of a project is the result of many factors, but Safety is the Key!

Demolition Equipment

One of the most common pieces of equipment used in the demolition industry is an Excavator with a Shear.

Recently,Universal Wrecking Corp. has added a CAT330 Excavator with a LaBounty UP70 to our fleet of equipment.  The LaBounty Universal Processor is an amazing piece of equipment that has assisted our demolition crews to work safely, quickly and more efficiently.

The UP70 has three separate jaws allowing for various capabilities. First, there is “Shear jaw” which is used to cut steel.  Second, there is a “Concrete Pulverizing Jaw” which is used to downsize big concrete to small concrete.  Lastly, there is a “Concrete Cracking Jaw” which is used to crack large pieces of concrete.

Since acquiring the excavator with the UP 70 we have been completing jobs weeks before completion dead-lines and have even saved on job costs.

Railroad Car and Tanker Dismantling Services by Universal Wrecking

June 2013 - Universal Wrecking Corp. is an expert in the scrap metal recycling business that is capable of safely dismantling and recycling obsolete rail cars. Universal Wrecking Corp (UWC) has the ability to dismantle and recycle all types of rail cars including box cars, gondolas and tank cars.

A typical rail car dismantling project starts with UWC salvaging any re-sellable components. UWC has a significant network of used railroad parts buyers and is typically able to salvage numerous items for resale. Following salvage activities, UWC then dismantles the rail car utilizing several OSHA trained and highly skilled laborers with torches. The cars are dismantled into pieces by the laborers with torches. A fire watch is always in place to ensure fire safety.   Tank cars with liners have to be cut up using one of UWC's Caterpillar excavators with shear because the rubber lined tanks can not be dismantled by torch.  The scrap metals are then loaded into containers and rolloffs and sent offsite for recycling.

Due to the current high price of scrap metals, the recycling proceeds are usually able to pay for all the dismantling and removal work with a significant amount left over to pay the client.  The client is always paid promptly at the completion of the project.

If you have any rail cars to be dismantled and scrapped, please contact us so that we may provide you with a proposal.

It Does Pay Sometimes to Perform Demolition

February 12 2013 - Universal Wrecking Corp., a nationwide demolition, dismantling and decommissioning contractor, says that in many cases property owners can have the cost of demolition significantly offset due to scrap metal and useable equipment recovery. 

 cat_excavator_with_shear_400

Scrap metal prices are near historic highs and Universal Wrecking Corp (UWC) is an expert in the recycling and recovery of both ferrous (steel) and non ferrous (copper, aluminum, etc.) scrap metals.  The value of the recovered scrap is applied back as a credit against the cost of demolition. 

In addition, there may be salvageable or useable equipment including electrical equipment, generators, tanks, vessels, mixers and other process and manufacturig equipment.  UWC seeks out buyers of this equipment and also applies any revenue generated from these sales against the cost of the project.

In many cases, the revenue generated from used equipment sales and scrap metal recycling can offset a significant amount of the costs such that a client ends up paying little for the project.  In some cases where there are significant scrap and assets, UWC has paid the client for the rights to the demolition project.

UWC looks forward to discussing your next demolition or dismantling project and can provide a detailed estimate or proposal.
