Construction Safety Management Process

IMGP3693  

We will ensure that health and safety is at the forefront of general work activities, communicated successfully to the team, achieving successful solutions through open and frank discussion with determined communication, co-operation and co-ordination throughout all phases of a project from inception to completion. The Construction Safety Manager with the assistance of our Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) Team will support staff with information on Health, Safety, Welfare and Environment.

Health, Safety, Welfare and Environment will form an integral part of the project ensuring that all employees and contractors are aware of the safety, health, welfare and environmental requirements, specific safety training and information will be provided to prepare persons on particular jobs or safe systems of work when necessary.

We will implement a robust Safety, Health, Welfare and Environmental Plan that will typically include the following headline titles (list is not exhaustive) when undertaking the Construction Management of the Project. Each headline title will be supported by a comprehensive package of safety procedures, risk assessments, method statements, safe systems of work, plans etc. These will be developed to meet any local issues, specific tasks, activities, environmental restrictions, hazardous operations, hazardous substances etc. Full liaison with the client, sub contractors and other interested parties will be undertaken to ensure that we obtain the relevant information required to remove / mitigate the risks identified. We will provide assistance with task and location specific risk assessments, method statements, safe systems of work, plans etc prior to undertaking activities on site:

Principles of Prevention

We will take account of and apply the general principles of prevention when carrying out duties:

(a)  Avoiding risks;

(b)  Evaluating the risks which cannot be avoided;

(c)  Combating the risks at source;

(d)  Adapting the work to the individual, especially as regards the design of workplaces, the choice of work equipment and the choice of working and production methods, with a view, in particular, to alleviating monotonous work and work at predetermined work rate and to reducing their effect on health;

(e)  Adapting to technical progress;

(f)  Replacing the dangerous by the non-¬dangerous or the less dangerous;

(g) Developing a coherent overall prevention policy which covers technology, organisation of work, working conditions, social relationships and the influence of factors relating to the working environment;

(h) Giving collective protective measures priority over individual protective measures and;

(i)  Giving appropriate instructions to employees.
