Consequences for breaching HSE requirements can be extremely severe, taking the form of heavy fines and even jail terms. Therefore, it is crucial that you undertake a construction risk assessment now.
Risk Assessment in Construction
Construction work can be extremely dangerous. To ensure adequate health and safety in construction, it is essential that your risk assessment includes the following:
- Identifying construction hazards at the site
- Identifying the people at risk (this can include children and the public)
- Evaluating the hazards and then removing or reducing risks where possible
- Recording findings and providing adequate training for construction workers
- Reviewing and updating the construction risk assessment regularly and especially if there are significant changes to the type of work.
There are many specific risk assessments included in the general construction assessment.
