3 tips for better construction risk assessment

A construction risk assessment can help to assess certain risks and prevent them. Typical accidents on the construction site are falls and electric shocks. To prevent such incidents, 3 useful tips for prevention measures on the construction site follow:

Wearing PPE

Your workers should always have sufficient personal protective clothing (PPE) and other necessary equipment. In this way a variety of injuries can be avoided.

Regular training sessions

The right equipment is only usable and operational if your team is sufficiently trained in the use of the equipment. Offer regular training and assistance to keep your team informed about the correct work. Communicate relevant changes and developments to ensure that employees know the behavioral guidelines for risks and hazards.

Implement correct processes

Accidents often happen due to unsystematic, inconsiderate actions. If certain work processes (e.g. the LOTO procedure) are practised from the very beginning, incorrect procedures and associated problems can be minimized.
