What is construction site safety? 

Construction site safety refers to all measures that contribute to occupational safety. These are important because construction sites are among the most dangerous workplaces. Construction workers face enormous risks every day. A construction site is a dynamic workplace with constant changes in working conditions and requirements. Different companies as well as suppliers work in parallel and influence each other. There is an increased potential for danger due to the following factors: 

  • Changing weather conditions 
  • Work at height, in pits and tunnels 
  • Time and deadline pressure 
  • Physical exertion 
  • Heavy machinery and materials 
  • Hazardous substances contained in construction materials 
  • Noise, dust and vibrations 

In order to ensure the safety of employees on a construction site despite the many sources of danger, various safety measures are needed. 

These include safe work clothing, remote-controlled construction machinery, safety instructions and proper storage of construction materials. In addition, it is important to educate employees in regular briefings about particular danger zones and risky work areas, escape and rescue routes, and first aid measures. All employees on a construction site should also take sufficient and long breaks. This is because most accidents in the construction sector are caused by fatigue. 

A high level of construction site safety should always be considered. After all, safety precautions help to maintain the health and performance of employees. Some regulations are also laid down by law. 

In the United Kingdom, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is responsible for enforcing standards. It helps prevent work-related deaths, injuries and illnesses. The HSE is a non-departmental public body supported by the Department for Work and Pensions. 

In the United States, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) defines and implements occupational safety and health standards by providing training, outreach, education and assistance. 

Competent person ensures safety at work on the construction site 

In the UK the employer is responsible for safety on the construction site and has to appoint one or more competent persons to assist in meeting the legal health and safety obligations. A competent person should have the skills, knowledge and experience to identify hazards in his business and help the employer put meaningful controls in place to protect workers and others from harm. Formal qualifications are not essential, and formal training is not required by law, but can be helpful. 

The employer may appoint one or more of its employees or someone outside the company. If there is a competent person on staff, it makes sense to appoint him or her. After all, employees know their jobs and associated risks best. 

In the United States, employers are also responsible for providing a safe workplace. In addition, OSHA safety and health officers conduct regular inspections and enforce fines for violations of the regulations. 

Checking construction site safety with a checklist 

The risks on a construction site are often underestimated. To make sure you don’t make this mistake, a checklist that lists the most important requirements in terms of safety will help you plan and check construction site safety. 

The following overview is a good basis: 

  • Securing the construction site and traffic routes 
  • Compliance with all applicable regulations 
  • Creation of individual protection plans for the use of work equipment 
  • Determination of work procedures 
  • Training of employees 
  • Creation of a first aid concept 
  • Documentation of ongoing measures 
  • Compliance with all applicable reporting requirements
