Identifying Site Hazards

Sites should display a daily hazard board to provide up to date information to operatives and visitors.

Relevant risk information and safety systems should be in place to ensure safety levels are maintained and to minimise the risk of accidents, injuries and fatalities.

Examples of how sites have identified potential hazards and provided information on site, include:

  • A red signing-in sheet was used on the days when a specific hazard had been identified on site and the information was also recorded on the site hazard board;
  • Huddle boards were used for morning briefings;
  • There was a large ‘Think Safe’ board at the entrance to the sites, showing simple graphics to remind site visitors of the dangers on site;
  • A ‘Live Activity’ whiteboard was displayed, with a site plan detailing the exact location of current activities and hazards;
  • Point-of-work risk assessments were carried out every morning, before the task commenced.
