Jason Mollak, president of JPM Construction, wrote this great post discussing by keeping a clean jobsite is important.

“A year ago I started investing in equipment to keep our site cleaner, more organized, and safer. It started with three items: an Oneida Dust Deputy, a FastCap Saw Hood, and an iVac Switch.
