The Versatility of Ecotech

From substation excavations to fruit spill cleanups, there is nothing our team can’t conquer!  Our innovative technology using vacuum excavation has allowed us to remove an overturned truck loaded with fruit from marshlands while also completing the job with minimal disturbance to the ground. The vacuum technology of our trucks creates innovative solutions to minimize the damage of properties and the environment. This holds true for the sinkholes and the milk spill we worked to help clean and repair. We never know what interesting jobs we might be called to!

Three Winter Safety Tips for Construction Workers

No matter the season, there are many safety hazards that construction workers face at the job site. In the summer, employers focus on protecting employees from heat and dehydration. During the winter months, employers must consider extreme cold, high winds, and ice. Basic precautions and greater education can greatly reduce employees risk of illness and injury.

Follow these three tips to improve winter safety at the construction site:

1) Limit Exposure to the Elements
With lower temperatures comes an increased risk of hypothermia and frostbite. Consider breaking up larger projects into smaller tasks. Reducing exposure to the cold and wind greatly improves worker safety.

2) Wear Appropriate Clothing
Avoid slips and falls by wearing proper nonslip footwear. It is important to dress in layers including a heavy coat, sweatshirt, hats and thermals. Encouraging employees to dress appropriately for winter weather helps to prevent illness and injury.

3) Inspect and Prepare Vehicles
Before heading into the cold season, all work vehicles should be inspected to guarantee that they are in working order. It’s important to include a emergency kit in all vehicles to aid in winter weather prevention and response.

Cold Weather & Frozen Ground Digging with Hydro Excavation

Ready to unlock an affordable and safe cold weather digging solution? A non-mechanical, non-destructive, and cost-effective excavating process, hydro excavation combines pressurized water and a high flow of moving air to simultaneously excavate and evacuate soil and other natural debris from the dig site. When cold weather strikes, hydro excavation is an especially effective digging solution. Here’s why:

1) Greater Safety
Typically, cold weather digging requires a large investment in time, resources, and capital. With hydro excavation, discover a safe, non-destructive, and cost-efficient method for exposing buried utilities. The soft dig process eliminates accidental damage to underground utilities and does not cause any unnecessary harm to the environment.

2) Lower Costs
Ready to save big on your next cold weather excavation project? With hydro excavation avoid costs associated with downtime where traditional digging methods are slowed down or brought to a halt due to frozen ground. Unlock a digging solution that saves you both time and money.

“Frost in the ground is essentially like trying to cut through concrete. Our hydro excavators are equipped with a boiler that heats the water to 120 degrees Fahrenheit that melts the frost allowing the water to cut easily through the frozen ground,” Ryan Frank, Director of Operations.
