There are constantly new materials being used on construction sites across the world. Some innovative products are hugely beneficial, while other traditional supplies are still the best products for the job.

Whether it is a safety gear or a nifty new tool, there are some products that are versatile and can be used on all projects. In this article, we will lay out the top seven products that are innovative, versatile and should be used on every job site, regardless of the project.

Safety Products

1: PPE Gear

No construction job should ever be initiated without first guaranteeing that all workers have access to quality Personal Protective Equipment. This includes:

  • Eye protection
  • Ear protection
  • Masks
  • Gloves
  • Helmets
  • etc.

Without question, these should be in ample supply to all employees.

2: Safety Barriers

When projects are dangerous or elevated, it is important to have the right barriers in place to prevent people from getting injured. If you are not sure which safety barriers you need, ask the people around you what will make them feel safe.

In addition, check for any relevant rules or regulations that are designed to guarantee safety for the workers. Depending on the project, barriers could include scaffolding, holes, trenches, or walls. Make sure to have safety barriers in place for any project.

3: Communication Devices

When working on a job site with other people, it is important that every participant is aligned in both the game plan and the goal. For everyone to stay aligned, individuals must be able to listen to one another. Utilize walkie talkies or a messaging system that allows you to share information with your crew promptly.

Tools Needed

4: Wire Cutters

No matter what situation you are in, there is always a chance that you will need to use wire cutters. You can use wire cutters for a variety of different endeavors including implementing trench mesh, adjusting wiring, or repositioning a product.

5: Scales

Whether you need a large, industrial scale or a smaller scale, these tools are necessary for precision and safety. Many scales are easy installed, portable, and affordable.

6:  Tool Belt

Every contractor should own a tool belt that carries the basic tools they need on any job site. Tool belts minimize the time spent fumbling for products in tool kits. Basic tools to be included on the belt should include:

  • Hammer
  • Screwdriver
  • Tape Measure
  • Pliers

By having these supplies handy, you will spend your time more efficiently.

7: Miniature Jig Saw

Every job site requires an extensive amount of cutting, sawing, and measuring. By having a reliable miniature jig saw, you can easily complete the smaller sawing steps of a project without the hassle of bothering with a large industrial saw.


There are many unique products that can be found in the market that equip workers to have a safe and efficient experience on the job. Although many of the tools for various jobs can be changed or substituted, the safety equipment and tools listed above are huge assets to any construction job.
