Health and safety during construction activity, is essential in all industry. Whether you are a dedicated construction company or a company undertaking construction, renovation or fit out of your operations, the hazards associated with that work are subject to particular controls. All parties in construction work, have duties including the business owners who commission the work, the designer, the principal contractor and the subcontractors.
Construction work is highly regulated because the construction industry is prone to many hazards and is considered high risk. High risk construction work must have Safe Work Method Statements developed to control hazards associated with construction activity, such as materials handling, working near traffic, electrical works, using tools, plant and machinery, working at height, and manual handling. The main types of accidents which cause death or serious injury on construction sites include falls, incidents with site vehicles, collapsing materials and contact with overhead power lines.
