When there is construction activity in your neighborhood, the most important thing for you to remember is that you must stay out of the project site. Do not proceed beyond barricades, cones, caution tape, safety fencing or other barriers, unless you have pre-authorized access from a Roloff Construction Project Superintendent.
Please do NOT move barricades, cones, caution tape, safety fencing or safety barriers of any kind.
Our construction projects require the use of very heavy equipment which will remain on the project site for the duration of the project. Never approach a piece of equipment. Equipment can swing, back up or otherwise move in a manner you may not anticipate and the operator may not be aware of your presence.
Our construction projects require us to excavate deep trenches and open manholes. Never approach an open trench or manhole in attempt to look down/in or in attempt to enter the excavation or manhole.
REPORTING SAFETY CONCERNS
- When we are working in your area, please be aware that there will be additional truck/construction equipment traffic. Please use extra caution when driving, biking or walking near a construction zone. It is very important to remind young children to use extra caution.
- If you are following a large truck, do not follow too closely and do not pull up too close to the back of a truck when it is stopped. If you can’t see the truck’s side mirrors, that means the truck driver cannot see you! Large trucks often have to back up and it is important that they be able to use their mirrors to see what is behind them. Please stay back so you remain visible.
From time to time, weather events, vandalism, careless motorists/citizens will create safety issues while we are not on the project site. If you see this type of situation or if you have any other concern about safety on one of our project sites, please call our office immediately at 402-861-1721. If you call after hours, you will be prompted to leave a message on our emergency hotline and the appropriate individuals will be contacted and will follow up with you.
If you are witnessing crime or vandalism on one of our project sites, please call your local police department immediately.
We will do our best to keep our project site safe and minimize disruption and inconvenience to residents and businesses. If you have concerns regarding access, mobility, transportation, etc., please contact our office and we will have our Project Manager and/or Project Superintendent get in touch with you.
