A safety and environmental philosophy is normally developed for the project. It is formulated to ensure that hazards, which can affect the safety of the personnel, the integrity of the facilitates and the conservation of the environment, are properly and adequately considered. In doing so, all legislative requirements are observed and complied with and the appropriate codes and standards are introduced onto the execution of work to ensure the retentions of good and well proven engineering practice throughout.
Probable hazards are established by comprehensive analysis.
He appropriate safety and environmental system and procedures are then in corporate into the project.
The principal objectives are:
In addition to regular site safety meeting under the direction of the project manager and safety engineer outlined in project execution tool box meeting also be periodically arranged by the members of the CGCs Field supervision to remind sub contractors supervisor and labour of their responsibilities towards ensuring site safety and ensure they are informed for current practices.
Regular information will be developed by CGC for its employee in order to make them aware of any hazards associated with fieldwork progress.
For this purpose CGC will, as part of the site prevention programme, provide field bulletin boards, which will include posters, general instruction prevention score boards and the like. These boards will be located at strategic points throughout the site in order to keep personnel informed on all safety matters.
The main provision of the safety manual that project manager will distribute after owners approval, to all field personnel are summarized in the following subsections:
The provision and use of personal protective equipment by all the labour force is considered to be an essential part of safe construction practices. This includes the wearing at all times of safety hats and footwears, and the use of goggle, gloves and safety belts, breathing apparatus as may be required by particular operation
CGC will provide and maintain in good working order such firefighting equipment and facilitates it may be necessary in order to control and extinguish any fires that may occur within their working area. The requirements of client and local regulations would be complied with and personnel would be trained in the use of the fire protection equipment provided.
All lifting equipment including cranes, chains, hooks slings and shackles will be inspected and maintained in good construction practice and clients standards
CGC will enforce any excavation work and the preparation and erection of form work carried out by GME will be in full compliance with the requirement of client safety manual.
Ladders will be of timber or metal or of an approved type erected and used in a safe manner
Particular attention will be paid to all matter relating to safety in use of motor vehicle and construction equipment
All CGC drivers and equipment operators will be qualified to ensure their capabilities and field safety acquaintance
Work permits will be obtained prior to the commencement of any work within owner specified restricted area when applicable.
CGC will comply with the established and continued operation of a good housekeeping program is an important factor in ensuring that lost time is kept to a minimum and may be considered to include, amongst other things.
CGC will develop action plans to cater for emergency situations incorporating clients requirements and will ensure that subcontractor personnel are aware of the procedures.
Periodic reviews will be undertaken with clients representatives.
Client will be informed in a case of:
CGC expects that clients has already developed various safety standards, which will be applicable to this project CGC will be include in the safety manual a summary of the standards indicating the associated responsibilities at field
Reports to : Project manager
Supervises : Site engineer and supervisor of sub contractors
In day to day operations he has the responsibility to provide all levels of supervision with the services and technical advice needed for proper compliance of the job site safety program. He is responsible to the project manager for objective and independent accident prevention judgments, which will make the job site program effective
