FAQs

What are the 3 Es of safety?

The 3Es of safety in the workplace are engineering, enforcement, and education.

What are the responsibilities of a contractor?

A contractor’s responsibilities include applying for building permits, securing the property, providing temporary utilities on the worksite, managing personnel on-site, providing site surveying and engineering, disposing or recycling construction waste, and monitoring schedules of the job being done.

Why some site-specific safety plans fail?

A safety plan sometimes fails because the details in it do not address particular issues specific to a given site. For example, the safety plan might fail to take into account project specifics, such as the site layout that can affect the safety of all workers. It might also leave out important information regarding any dangerous chemical components used in the project, an accurate visual diagram of the site, or important details about the location of the worksite that will affect the construction job being done there.

Before you print the final copy of the safety plan that you will use to orient your workers and other contractors during the job on the construction site,  make sure to check it and review it for any grammatical errors or inaccurate details. You may ask a colleague to help you out in the editing process to ensure no details are spared and your safety plan is organized well to make it look professional.
