Team Building Exercises

Team work is essential to build good working relationships and safely undertake a construction project.

Cohesion between members of the team accompanied with good communication, understanding of the project, hazards and other members roles within the team can help to successfully safeguard all members of the workforce, as well as ensuring the project is completed on time and to a high standard.

Below is an example of how a site implemented team building exercises:

  • The site held a stand-down day, including the designers and the client;
  • Team building exercises were deployed, this involved a sense of contribution from all those who participated in the exercise;
  • The rotation of teams through each quadrant of the project produced points to be considered by all;
  • This day was successful in promoting safety awareness and safety behaviour and promoted the need for team contributions from all concerned.

As a result of this day, both the designers and client became much more aware of the safety issues facing operatives.
