Site clearance may appear as a simple process to manyun-oriented people; however, it requires a certain methodology to make it asuccessful and viable endeavor. It involves, usually, removal of obstructionssuch as existing structures or vegetation as well as stripping soil andremoving large materials such as rocks, gravels and other unwanted debris onsite.

Here are the necessary steps and guidelines to adhere to whenconducting site-clearing operations:

1. Managementof people who have access to the site

Safety is a primary consideration in any earth-movingoperation since the presence of heavy equipment and possible leakage of toxicgases or explosion due to buried explosives or methane-gas ignition can inflictgreat damage. As such, only people with site-safety training can gain access tothe premises.

2. SiteClearance or Excavation Permit must be issued

The Site Engineer must issue a site clearance permit, asprovided by the city authorities, to the people charged with the clearingactivity. The section engineer will also refer to relevant documentation as todetailed services so as to provide necessary protection, such as fencing orstructures to protect existing utility lines or properties beyond the boundaries.

3. Equipmentand personnel access to site must be established

To control entry and movement of equipment and personnel, theSite Engineer will define entry points and site proper traffic to optimizeefficiency of operation as well as ensure safety of all concerned. Whennecessary, fencing will be set up to prevent access to dangerous or securedareas (ravines, deep excavations or landslide-prone areas).

4. Surplusvegetation removal and stockpiling

All vegetation must be removed using equipment with360-degree capability. The vegetation will then be stockpiled in a designatedarea and disposed off properly, according to environmental regulations. In manyplaces, burning is resorted to; however, more and more countries do not allowthis polluting practice although it is the traditional way.

5. Limits  of Site Clearance

All works will be done within the permanently designatedfences used as boundaries approved in the contract. This also involvesaccomplishing all works only within the perimeter of the said boundaries.

The landowner must always be involved in the initialpreparation and ongoing project activities until the completion of theoperation. This will assure that all activities are done according to theirapproved objectives and requirements.
