How to remove construction chutes safely after use
After completing cleaning the workplace after a construction project, it is crucial to ensure the safe removal of the installed construction chutes. This will help protect the chutes against damage and avoid injuring workers guarding the chutes system.
Removing construction chutes safely after use requires patience and a systematic step-by-step procedure. The construction chute system is hung too high to fall. Consequently, follow the steps below to remove the demolition chute safely after use.
Step 1: Remove the dumpster and the ground controls around the construction chutes. This will create adequate space need for the removal of the chute system.
Step 2: Remove the hopper chute placed into the construction chute system to create space for the installation of the winch.
Step 3: Install the winch into the anchor, as you did during the construction chute system installation. Ensure that it fits into the anchor perfectly.
Step 4: Attach the picking or lifting bar to the winch and fasten the metal chains on the chute system to the picking bar. Remove the metal chains securing the chute system to the anchor for easy removal.
Step 5: Release the construction chutes to the ground via the picking bar using the winch. An employee should be on the ground to guide and set the chutes on the floor neatly. Unlink the chutes from one another by removing the metal chains linking them.
Step 6: Remove the picking or lifting bar from the construction chute system, and lift it using the winch back to the top.
Step 7: Remove the picking bar from the winch. And take the winch off the anchor.
Step 8: Safely remove the anchor from the parapet, balcony, or window where it was installed.
Step 9: Remove the guardrail.
The steps above are involved in removing the construction chute safely after use. It is crucial to follow the procedure to prevent accidents. The chutes hanging on the winch should not fall on people on the floor – it will be disastrous. Therefore, the removal of the installed construction chute should be carried out professionally.
