When working on any construction site, whether it’s for a small extension or a whole new building, effective organisation and safety is required by law. There are various different aspects of any site which need to be managed carefully to avoid any accidents or injuries. Here is a look at the hazards which need be considered for every building project.

5 Aspects Of Site Construction Which You Must Consider

Everything you need to know about organising a safe and healthy construction site:

  • Traffic Management – Vehicle access and management is one of the most crucial areas of site management and can have an effect on everything from materials, time and money. The law states that you must organise a construction site so that vehicles and pedestrians using site routes can move around safely. Routes need to be suitable so that large vehicles such as lorries and roll on roll off skips can access the site easily.
  • Protecting The Public – All sites must be closed and protected to members of the public by law so that nobody unauthorised can walk on to the site intentionally or by mistake. Safe access must be provided to any buildings which are being used by the public during the construction time and extra measure to avoid children from accessing any part of the site.
  • Material Storage & Waste Management – This may seem less important as safety, but if materials are not kept in the right place or condition, then they could become a danger to employees or members of the public. The law says that all sites must be kept in ‘good order’ so that no hazards are left around which could cause injury. Plans must be made before a project begins for the management of materials and waste. One of the easiest options is to use roll on roll off skips, which provide both storage and manoeuvrability.
  • Welfare – All sites must have the correct welfare facilities in order to operate as a place of work. This includes toilets, washing facilities, drinking water, changing rooms and an area where employees can take their break and have a rest from work. Contractors must maintain the facilities throughout the life of the project, how much is needed depends on how big the site is and how many people are working on it.
  • Administration – This includes all of the extensive paperwork which is required for every construction project in order to prove you have complied with all of the other aspects of organisation and safety which are required. This is conducted through plans and reports, with heavy consequences given out to any company which fails to comply.
