Client must provide the designer/adviser and tenderers with relevant health and safety information (such as existing drawings, any existing site safety plan — including any known hazards, surveys of the site or premises or information on the location of services) Designers/Advisers: 1. Designer must obtained sufficient information from the client and other parties to make sure the plan is prepared competently (such as drawings, job specifications and product specifications) 2. Designer must prepared the pre-tender stage health and safety plan, where requested, on behalf of the client (essentially, this is a collection of information about the significant health and safety risks of the project) 3. Designer must provide the client and potential contractors with information about the risks that cannot be avoided and will have to be controlled by the head contractor and other contractors 4. Designer must provide advice, where requested, to the client on the health and safety performance of potential contractors and organisations tendering for the work Stage 4 – Construction Clients: 1.
But despite these measures accidents still occur because it is hard to confirm the elimination of accidents forever. A study reported that are relative to provide safe work condition and risk assessment but with a certain degree safety can be limited in relation to some guarantee or standards of insurance to the quality and of an object or organization. 8: The
I will discuss the importance of employee training, personal safety, safety slogans, environmental safety and informational posters. INJURY PREVENTION: Preventing injuries in the workplace is the main objective for workplace safety. Developing plans in detail, providing guidance in any event such as an accident, fire, or other emergencies. These plans will identify the roles and duties when
So the workplace injuries are preventable. What is safety and health management system (SHMS)? SHMS is a systematic approach to managing safety and health activities by integrating occupational safety and health programs, policies, and objectives into organizational policies and procedures. Why we need a safety management system? • Safety management system
Controlling Quality: Quality control represent important concerns for project managers. The Defects or failures in constructed facilities can result in very large costs. In addition, the project manager needs to concentrate on the quality of the products used in the project. Susan Randolph was hired by the Millers to customize their unit and furnish it. He has noticed that the project manager and the general contractor were focusing in the speed and efficiency rather than quality.
Employee safety was not BP first concern; the organization was inadequately prepared for such a catastrophic situation. When the crisis occurred, "The company was too slow, tried to blame third parties and abdicated responsibility while it would express concern for the victims and take its responsibility and reassure all the stakeholders. BP even aggravated its reputation damages when it censured or delayed the information flow and refused to cooperate with the media. Besides, through the succession of accidents and scandals, it seems that BP has never believed that it could learn from such crisis. "(Mejri, M.& DeWolf D, 2013 pp.
It is not easy job to start the construction project with one designer; it requires a team of professional designers, structural engineers, advisers, architects, interior designers, landscape designers, contractors and suppliers etc. Temporary Works Procedure Temporary works procedure is crucial to find the engineered solution of a complex construction project, to support an existing structure and permanent works during construction, to improve management arrangements of contractors and to promote knowledge awareness of the importance of managing temporary and The accurate design and implementation of temporary works is an essential element for the prevention of risk and reduction of accidents arising from temporary works failures in construction. Management of Equipment and Plant The economic use of proper and appropriate construction equipment for specific construction operations contributes to the economy, construction management, safety, quality, speed and timely completion of a project. Plant management and proper maintenance of equipment is important in civil engineering construction works. Different types of construction projects required different variety of construction equipment like pilling equipment, earthwork equipment, concrete mixing and placement equipment, and hoisting equipment
It is a requirement of The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 that employers carry out a risk assessment of the workplace. After recognising any hazards, they must then assess the risks which could arise and identify the necessary steps that should be taken to deal with them. Separate risk assessments are required for pregnant employees. The employer is also required to produce a Safety Statement for the workplace. This is a document that outlines how the company will safeguard the health and safety of employees at work and other people that visit the premises (HSA, 2016).
Design-out Maintenance The maintenance requirements are ‘designed-out’ to accomplish the necessary level of efficiency. Maintenance Management – BSE Building services personnel deliver the environmental scenario to ensure business processes perform optimally. The requirements pertaining to the maintenance of engineering services would differ from one client to another, but the main concern would be to ensure efficient usage of the premises. The engineering plant and equipment utilized in buildings deliver several benefits - environmental scenarios (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) to ensure dwellers are comfortable. The services once installed in a building would need proper maintenance to ensure they function optimally.
Inspection of building construction work Inspection of construction must be done to make sure the building construction work follow the requirements or not inspection of construction must follows the approval of application and the builder’s request. In the inspection stages, the inspector must know the codes and guidelines required to be examined at each stages of inspection. The codes and guidelines give the stages at which the inspectors are expected to examine the work and to approve the work examined so that the contractor can move to the following stages of work. According to (Wason), the following are the work that should be examined: A. Building Layout.
