What is a construction checklist?


On construction sites, a checklist can be useful in many areas. Checklists and work templates make everyday work in the construction industry easier for you and your employees - from the site manager to the foreman. They list and describe precisely which tasks have to be completed and which materials and equipment are required. Above all, however, safety on construction sites is significantly increased by a professional checklist in the respective construction area.


Your construction site checklist is your guide to the things you need for construction or a list of procedures and processes you need to follow to complete a particular infrastructure. Construction site checklists are used just as successfully for large projects to construct single-family homes and other small building contracts.


You can use checklists in the construction industry, not only when you are implementing construction projects. They are practical working aids as early as the planning stage, the preparation of construction measures, and the final inspection of a construction project's completion.



How is a construction site checklist created?


A construction site checklist helps you plan processes and procedures in all phases of a construction project to complete at the scheduled time. With a checklist, site managers can systematically list what needs to be done, how it is to be implemented and which things need to be done for specific measures. It is important to take into account the different phases that a construction project goes through.


The checklists must be prepared professionally and carefully to be organised sensibly and according to priority. Besides, unique checklists can be drawn up for construction sites, such as dealing with safety training or the presence of employees.


The following five tips will help you to create checklist templates for each phase of your construction project, which will help you and your team to work effectively:


1. Preparation of the Construction Project


Creating checklists in the pre-construction phase can be a difficult task. Before starting a construction project, contractors and site managers should gather all tender documents:


  • Permits
  • Specifications
  • Plans
  • Building specifications
  • Contracts and contractual conditions
  • Information on the qualifications of contractors in connection with the tendering of works
  • Secondary offers from other potential contractors, even if they have not been activated

With the documents' help, it is more accessible and reliably to determining dependencies and processes for the various construction checklists. Only in this way can site managers know which task follows on from the other and can record this in a structured manner in their templates.


When planning, you should concentrate on which work the construction will start. On this basis, you then create checklists to procure materials, material acceptance, work processes and work equipment. A pre-construction checklist can monitoring work safety on construction sites.


2. Early Construction Phase


In this phase of the construction project, it is essential to have checklists for the construction site to monitor the construction work's accuracy, work safety and construction progress.


Create checklist templates for the acceptance of individual construction phases, which answer questions such as:


  • Is the foundation cast and stable?
  • Are all walls vertical and level?
  • Are all floor surfaces level, supported and drawn in?
  • Are all pipe systems installed?
  • How does construction affect the surroundings and the environment?/li>

Draw up checklists for possible additional inspections and improvement work. Always pay attention to occupational safety on construction sites by preparing checklists for regular safety inspections and instructions.


3. Main Construction Phase


The main phase does not mean: Don't lose track of the different construction measures. You and your employees need to prepare checklists for the construction site, which show precisely when which work is to be carried out by which team, and which ones are to follow. This facilitates the planning of human resources and materials and prevents misunderstandings that could lead to delays.


In every construction phase, it is part of the process to check the construction site's occupational safety at regular intervals using a construction checklist. Make sure that you create templates for the different construction areas, such as roofing work, structural and civil engineering, welding work, etc. You can also introduce checklists to maintain tools, construction vehicles and personal protective equipment (PPE).


4. Waste Management on Construction Sites


Construction generates waste that is left behind by craftsmen and subcontractors. At the latest, after completing the construction project, building contractors are obliged to dispose of the trash properly. Organising a functioning waste management system on building sites with checklists takes a lot of work off you and your company even during construction.


5. Building Inspection


For many contractors, site managers and other responsible persons on the construction site, the building's acceptance is often the most delicate phase in the construction project. Now the decision is made whether all work carried out correctly.


Before each final acceptance, you can use a construction checklist to go through an initial trial run for building approval. In this way, faulty work can be detected early and eliminated before the final acceptance. You can create another checklist for the corrective measures to ensure that all remedial work is complete.


A similar procedure applies to the construction work's final acceptance: all construction areas and work are checked using a checklist. If defects are discovered, they are noted, their removal is ordered. In the case of a subsequent building inspection, their removal is checked on the building site using a further checklist - until the building project is complete.


In this way, nothing gets overlooked, and costly repairs and rectification of defects after completion of the construction project avoid.



FAQs: The 3 most frequently asked questions


What advantages does a construction checklist offer?

Any necessary corrective actions are immediately recorded and immediately instructed.


What information belongs in a checklist for construction sites?


Checklists for construction sites are designed differently depending on the area of application.

Can occupational safety on construction sites be improved with a checklist?


Regular inspections of safety measures, personal protective equipment and work equipment with construction checklists increase work safety for all employees and the public in the construction site's vicinity.
