Modified Safety Induction

During the current pandemic, the Jarvis Site Safety induction Procedure has been modified to reduce the need for face-to-face contact and more importantly, to prepare personnel before attending site, as some of the additional safety measures address travel to and accessing our sites.

The temporary revision to the Site Safety Induction process is as follows:

In advance of attending site and after supply chain RAMS have been reviewed and accepted, the project team are to issue the following information to the relevant subcontractor:

  • Jarvis Site Safety Induction Video (Generic)
  • Jarvis Coronavirus (COVID-19) induction module
  • Site Specific Induction Presentation

The subcontractor must acknowledge receipt and forward copies of all modules to the relevant operatives for remote viewing of all of the above.

The subcontractor must then certify that each of the operatives have reviewed all of the Induction presentations and that their personnel understand them. The subcontractor must also forward copies of CSCS Card information for each operative, for the site team to check against the CITB database.

Site management will ask each operative on attending site, three standard health questions and also ask to confirm that they have read and understood each of the induction modules. Site Management may ask test questions from standard Jarvis Induction question lists.

On satisfactory confirmation that the operative has reviewed all of the Safety Induction Modules and they are competent for their role, site management will record the operative’s details within the Induction Register and sign of their behalf.

Should an operative appear not to have viewed or understood all of the Induction Modules, they are to be placed in an isolated area, and the modules are to be forwarded to a mobile device for remote viewing. If they do not have a mobile device, they will not be permitted access and the subcontractor company contacted to make the necessary arrangements to allow remote viewing.

Site Management have the authority to allow individuals to review all Induction modules on site, should they feel that there are mitigating circumstances, such as a late change in personnel because of illness. This is to be carried out under strict Isolation conditions.

This example of best practice is just one way that projects can work to tackle the virus and reduce the spread. For full guidance and the latest Government advice read the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures.
