Identifying hazards on site

The safety of your workforce is paramount and systems should be in place to ensure continuous safety improvements.

All risk and hazards present on site should be identified and communicated to all operatives.

Below is an example of how sites can identify hazards and highlight them to workers and visitors:

  • The daily signing in sheet noted in bold when there was an update on the large on site hazard board so operatives could take note of the new information;
  • A grid referencing system was superimposed over the site plan against which areas of risk/hazards could be identified and cross referenced to all other documentation and reports;
  • This initiative intended to avoid confusion or uncertainty caused by the use of plot numbers and site features.
