Common Misconception #08: Demolition is a Dangerous Business.

In the hands of professionals, the danger is controlled. While the demolition process has the potential to create an unsafe work environment, the professional demolition contractor has designed programs to prevent accidents for both on and off-site activities. Many demolition contractors employ in-house safety directors to prepare written standards, conduct safety meetings, develop incentives for no lost time injuries, and provide employees with the most advanced safety equipment. Increased government requirements such as those from state agencies, DOT, EPA, and OSHA, have increased the awareness and enforcement of workplace safety.
