Construction Safety Tips: secure your worksite

construction-safety-secure-worksite

Construction safety: a growing need

Construction safety—this looks different to many people. Whether it’s wearing safety glasses, full PPE or never working at the sight of rain, safety standards are rarely the same for all workers or worksites.

The construction industry is currently growing, therefore, construction safety is a growing issue, too. Builders now seek to accommodate a growing population by building apartments, condominiums and other buildings that maximize available space, says Statistics Canada. In 2017, the Canadian Home Builders’ Association reports nearly 600,00 on and off-site jobs in new home construction.

Basically, communities are growing and business is boomin’—project managers and contractors alike should consider ways they can secure their worksites. Read on for 6 construction safety tips from CONEXPO to help secure your worksite.

Construction safety: 6 tips

Communicate with law enforcement

Establish connection with local law enforcement units, ideally before construction begins. Ask about the crime in the local area, trends or other crimes common to the area.

Keep technology offsite

Theft of private information via technology is a real issue facing project managers. Take home computers at the end of the day, and limit private information on the worksite to limit computer-theft and a company crisis.

Post warning signs

Make the perimeter of your jobsite clear. Warning labels are essential to mark hazards or injuries that could happen to trespassers. Make sure signage accompanies other security measures (like barbed-wire fences) to clarify the warning. Proper signage can help a company avoid a slew of legal issues when and if intruders become injured.

Post signs like this around the worksite perimeter.
Keep track of your equipment

Be sure to park heavy equipment in a well-lit and secure area, and have a checkout procedure in place for equipment, tools and materials on the worksite.  Lock gas caps and equipment when the worksite is closed with anti-theft devices. If using expensive or high-valued equipment, consider hiding a GPS-tracking device on it.

Understand potential theft

Look at your worksite and try to imagine potential situations—thieves may steal equipment that helps them steal other things. For example, a saw may be stolen to cut the lock from an excavator and drive it away. Try to position tools and equipment that can break locks away from each other.

Assign a loss prevention manager

Assign an employee to survey the worksite at the beginning and end of each day, track equipment checkout, maintain contact with law enforcement and track worksite entrances and exits.

Securing your worksite is an essential aspect of construction safety. Be proactive—protect worksite equipment and ensure productivity and progress isn’t slowed or stopped due to thieves or vandalism.
