When I started working with my Uncle Bob last summer, I assumed that construction would be an easy, fun way to make a few extra bucks. However, I quickly discovered that construction work was serious business, filled with risks, difficulty, and rewards. After almost being creamed by a few backhoe booms, I learned how to stay out of the way. However, staying safe around heavy machinery isn't always easy to do. My blog talks about how to use machinery properly and what you need to do to stay safe so that you can return home to your family each and every day.

Most construction companies own a wide variety of construction equipment, but it does not always make sense financially to purchase every type of equipment available. For example, if there is a piece of equipment that may only be used several times a year for different types of construction projects, it doesn't make sense for a construction company to spend the money to purchase it and maintain it. In this type of situation, the better option is to rent the equipment.
