Construction Site Safety means that workers are protected from preventable illnesses and injuries as they carry out daily tasks and other work activities. Health and safety regulations exist to reduce the risks as much as practically possible.

Complying with the law, whether it’s general site safety or specific requirements for particular activities, ensures individuals are safe. However, it means you’re reducing sick leave, increasing productivity, and won’t receive a large fine or imprisonment.

When it comes to running a safe site, it can range from operational improvements to providing those at increased week with the correct equipment. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) plays a big part in construction safety.

PPE

One of the biggest musts on many sites is to kit out all workers and visitors with reflective equipment. This means they can be spotted no matter the light levels or the vantage point, so they can be seen from vehicles or high above. And this clothing can range from individual items to entire outfits.

Another is head protection. Wearing a safety helmet protects against overhead bumps and from falling objects. Ensuring to choose the right one for the wearer and activities is vital, and can prevent serious injuries. And don’t forget about your feet, as wearing safety boots and shoes will save you from a serious and debilitating accident.

Fingers are just as important too, and with safety gloves, you can improve the grip levels of the wearer, whilst shielding them from dangerous chemicals, equipment, and supplies.

When using equipment, or using certain materials, harmful particulates can be produced. To prevent these from affecting your breathing or vision, then breathing apparatus and safety glasses/goggles are required. Again, you must take care to choose equipment which is suitable for the hazards and fits the user snuggly and comfortably.

Because of how noisy such environments can be, with the variety of equipment and vehicles used, these can reach dangerously high levels which can cause temporary and permanent hearing damage. Wearing ear protection reduces the decibels which reach the ear to a safe level.
