As part of our Safepass traing programs we run here in Dublin you will become aware of all of the safety steps you should take while working on site.
Below are a few of the precautionary measures that can help to insure your safety and protection when you are working on site.
It is no secret that in the past many laborers have lost their lives, mostly due to falling off scaffolds and ladders. So it is very important to get proper training with all equipment.
You should be familiar with how much a particular type of access equipment can hold and to ensure that you do not exceed the operating weights of a particular piece of equipment. It is necessary to inspect all the ladders and scaffolds before each shift.
Laborers should be aware that it is ill advised to walk on or across any unsecured roofs or shingles. It is always advisable to follow the site safety rules while installing guard rails or any sturdy protective screens for every construction site. It is advisable to maintain a net underneath any roof opening while the construction is going on to ensure the health and safety of those working on the ground or levels below.
During a building project, all toxic materials should be properly safeguarded so as not to endanger the lives of on site workers, as well as not to affect the building foundation and the lives of the residents or workers there after. When workers work around bridges, there is a strong chance of exposure to lead. There are also tunnels, bridges, and elevators where you can get exposed to lead. So it is important that every worker’s blood lead level should be checked to be allowed to work in those places. Workers are exposed to tunnels while roofing, paving roads, and it can cause various harmful diseases of the lungs, skins, eyes and respiratory systems. Exposure to lead, asbestos and other toxic fumes and dusts can lead to cancer as well. So it is crucial that all the best equipment should be used for reducing the fumes and absolutely essential that all workers wear protective gear. Hard hats are one of the essential accessories of any construction site, but you also need a vest with reflective coating or stripes, gloves, goggles or other eye protection and specific accessories for specific types of construction sites.
Following some of these basic tips can save your health and save your life.
