Reducing the risk of trips and falls

A construction site can pose a number of potential trip or fall hazards.

The safety of operatives, visitors and the general public should be at the forefront of constructors minds when planning the work to take place.

Potential hazards should be identified and measures implemented to minimise these risks.

This site has minimised the risk of trips and falls by doing the following:

  • It was identified that tripods used by surveyors and engineers can be a trip hazard especially when it is dark at night;
  • To combat this issue, the site has attached Orange LED’s on a Velcro collar around the feet off all 3 legs of the tripods which make them far more visible and therefore reducing the risk of trips and falls.
