Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: (1) ensure that building designs takes into consideration of the needs of people with disabilities including access point for wheel chairs (including upstairs rooms) as well as provision of special washrooms and rams at the access points; (2) ensure fair and market prices are paid to suppliers commensurate to quality of goods and services rendered; (3) waste collection should be made at least once in 24 hours and it should be done in such a way to minimize nuisance of smell and dust during collection; (4) keep all construction equipment in good operating condition to reduce exhaust emissions; (5) use signage to warn staff and or visitors that are not involved in construction activities of dangerous places; and (6) adopt best transport safety practices with the goal of preventing traffic accidents and minimizing injuries suffered by project personnel and the public.
