PowerPoint Presentation:

Height HAZARDS on C onstruction S ites H oles in F loors, G aps on W orking P latforms, S hafts and S tairwells not A dequately C overed, B arricaded , F enced O ff Working at H eight Using ladders or scaffolding without proper fixing is crazy Never modify scaffolding or use incomplete scaffolding Make sure there are hand rails and toe boards at all edges Things fall on sites, wear your helmet Before starting work at heights check for clearance from any overhead power lines Construction Site Safety

PowerPoint Presentation:

Right for the job. Would scaffolding or a cherry picker be better? In good shape Secured near the top On a firm base and footing 4 up – 1 out Rising at least 1 meter beyond the landing place OR that there is a proper hand hold Always have a firm grip on the ladder and keep a good balance LETHAL LADDERS: Ladders kill a lot of people. Make sure the ladder is:- Construction Site Safety

Safe Ladders:

Safe Ladders Never allow more than one person on a ladder Use tool belts or hand lines to carry objects . Do not lean out from the ladder in any direction If you have a fear of heights – don’t climb a ladder Do not allow others to work under a ladder in use Construction Site Safety

PowerPoint Presentation:

THE ROOF: A RISKY PLACE TO BE. Very Simply:- Specialist workers only will be permitted to undertake work on new roofs No unauthorised personnel to access any existing or new roofs Remember: a walk along a fragile roof could be your last 50% of fatal injuries involving roofs are falls thru ’ fragile materials, 30% are falls from edges and openings Construction Site Safety

PowerPoint Presentation:

All excavations deeper than 1.25meters MUST be shored or battered. Excavations deeper than 2 meters MUST have a guard rail or barrier Vehicles working too close to the side of the trench or rubble piled on the sides may cause collapse Vehicles tipping into the excavation must use stop blocks EXCAVATION WORK. If you want to avoid being buried alive apply these rules:- Construction Site Safety

PowerPoint Presentation:

Make sure the excavation is inspected daily Make sure you know where any underground pipes and cables are before you hit them REMEMBER: There is no safe ground that “will not collapse” Trench sides can collapse without warning EXCAVATION WORK If you want to avoid being buried alive apply these rules:- Construction Site Safety

PowerPoint Presentation:

The weight of the load must be carefully estimated The crane must be fitted with an automatic safe load indicator (one that works) The crane must always work on a hard, level base The load must be properly fixed and secured The banksman must be trained to give clear signals NEVER, NEVER be carried with a load CRANE SAFETY Very Simply :- Construction Site Safety

Traffic Vehicles & Plant:

Traffic Vehicles & Plant Vehicles and pedestrians should be kept apart on-site – separate them as much as possible using barriers Adequate clearance around slewing vehicles Avoid reversing where possible & use one-way system Vehicles should have reversing alarms/sirens Passengers only on vehicles designed to carry them. Seatbelts must be worn at all times Vehicles should only be operated by authorised, trained personnel. Construction Site Safety

Goods Hoist Good Safety Practice:

Goods Hoist Good Safety Practice Installed by a competent person Rated capacity clearly marked Current examination and inspection report Suitable base enclosure to prevent people being struck by moving part of hoist Landing gates kept shut except when platform is at landing Construction Site Safety

PowerPoint Presentation:

Treat electricity with respect Check constantly that cables are not damaged or worn Keep trailing cables off the ground and away from water Never overload or use makeshift plugs and fuses Check equipment constantly for signs of damage Authoried personnel only to access MCC Rooms ELECTRICITY Good practice with electricity on site:- Construction Site Safety

Working near Sewage:

Working near Sewage Health Risks: *Gastroenteritis *Hepatitis *Weil’s disease (Leptospirosis) {Rats Urine} *Asthma *Skin/Eye infections *Inflammation of the lungs How to become infected: Hand-to-mouth contact(eating, drinking, smoking, wiping the face with contaminated gloves) – most common Skin contact(cuts, scratches or wounds and some organisms enter the body through the eyes) Breathing(either as dust or mist ) How to protect yourself: Understand the risks Understand how you may be infected Wear protective clothing Avoid sewage if possible Apply good personal hygiene Cleanse all wounds & cover Change out of contaminated clothing Clean equipment & boots etc on site If in doubt - see your doctor Construction Site Safety

PPE on-site:

PPE on-site Most construction sites require at least: Hard hat Safety Boots Hi-viz jacket Safety Glasses when needed Gloves Wear them always for your safety Construction Site Safety

Confined Spaces:

Confined Spaces Identification of a confined space must be done as part of task Risk Assessment. Work shall only be undertaken with a confined space permit to work issued. Gas detectors must be used at all times Likely hazards: Lack of oxygen Hydrogen Sulphide Carbon Dioxide Flooding

Working Over Water:

Working Over Water Working over water presents signifcant safety risks Flowing water is prevalent on site, ensure sufficient safety equipment is worn and present Several tanks have deep water depth – sever danger Aerated water is non-bouyant – severe danger


BASIC SAFETY PHILOSOPHY FOR SUCCESS A NEW SAFETY CULTURE All accidents are preventable. No job is worth getting hurt for. Every job will be done safely. Incidents can be managed. Safety is everyone’s responsibility. Continuous improvement. Safety as a “way of life” for 24 hours/day All individuals have the responsibility and accountability to identify eliminate or manage risks associated with their workplace Legal obligations will be the minimum requirements fro our health & safety standards Individual will be trained and equipped to have the skills and facilities to ensure an accident free workplace What’s your company approach to safety?

Construction Site Safety:

Construction Site Safety No job is so important that it cannot be done safely UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE PERSONS WORKING ON THIS SITE TO PUT THEMSELVES IN DANGER BEST - BE Safe Today
