Sites should display a 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 this sites live hazard board has been beneficial include:
- It clearly demonstrates the hazards that appear on site on that particular day, not only the live hazards;
- In lieu of having to remove certain activities that may be happening again, you simply slide the toggle over demonstrating that it isn’t occurring on the particular day;
- The list of hazards can form a forecast of upcoming activities for the site operatives to be aware of;
- Once a hazard is identified as live, they simply advise the location in which this activity is occurring;
- The board itself forms as a good tool for supervisor’s when performing their morning daily activity briefings;
- This particular board forms a very good visual for visitors to the site who haven’t been through the morning’s daily activity briefing;
