When does job-site safety begin?


This may be a rhetorical question you ask yourself.  Here’s what you should know:

The moment you drive onto the site, park and step out of your vehicle the following should be considered as a safety start-up punch list:

  1. Put on your harness, and other personal safety equipment that will be needed for site;
  2. Place cones or delineators around work vehicles and equipment with flags, yellow caution tape or red danger tape;
  3. Discuss safety issues with the workers, for this site; per the job safety plan;
  4. Set-up ladders and the first worker up the ladder ties it off;
  5. Look for attachment points on the existing roof where workers will tie off;
  6. Install fall-arrest anchors as needed in proper places; one per worker.
