Here is some excellent information that will give you an idea of how to start your safety plan for each unique construction project and its many phases.
Being prepared never hurt anyone
It is hard to begin to name all the risks that come with working in construction and being well prepared never hurt anyone. Construction industry is at the top of the list in the number of work related injuries and it also has the highest worker fatality rates. The numbers have to alarm both workers, managers, and contractors. A responsible team leader, manager, or supervisor will make sure the SAFETY of the crew is the topmost priority.
It’s no surprise construction work is so dangerous. Every day as the construction progresses, there are new risks and obstacles, and it is never the same. Compared to manufacturing projects or office jobs that have a controlled environment, construction brings a unique challenge every step of the way.
Create a safety plan
Every jobsite is different. That’s why it’s essential to create a plan that will be specific to each project. When you are working on your building schedule, you should also be crafting your safety plan at the same time. Incorporating safety plans that worked on past projects similar to the one you are working on now is a good idea.
Red flags at each project phase
Be sure to identify all the red flags at each stage of the project. Make sure you operate the right way to avoid risks and eliminate hazards by attending trainings. Extreme Safety offers a number of safety trainings that are very useful for informing workers and managers about workplace hazards and controls so they can work more safely and be more productive. The trainings you need and PPE equipment will change as your project progresses.
Specific training and equipment
For instance, as you are starting your project, you will plan for safety measures on areas like trenching accidents, cave-ins, equipment rollover, and workers potentially being struck by heavy equipment. Moving along with the project, workers will be working at heights, and so you will need to be planning for fall protection, as well as ladder and scaffold safety.
