Site Safety Plans

What are site safety plans?

A site safety plan is a document containing a written outline of your safety plan. The ultimate purpose of a site safety management is to prevent accidents (and more importantly deaths) from occurring on the building site. 

What must go in a site safety plan?

Your site safety plan must contain all details of how the contractor is planning to manage risk on a project site. 

Are there benefits to having a site safety plan?

The site safety plan has many benefits. These include stopping accidents or deaths on your job site, and also maximizing public safety. Construction site safety has to be taken into consideration. For example, if accidents do occur, it could open your company up to litigation or fines. A detailed safety plan also makes it easier to get your permits and building plans approved. 

What does a site safety plan need?

The safety plan requires several things. It should forecast potential risks which may occur during certain activities, and ways to control these risks. It should also have certain procedures for protecting workers, visitors, and the public from these risks. These procedures must also protect contractors and sub-contractors who may be working on the site. Finally, a certified site safety plan should be regularly updated according to changing conditions. 

Jobs which need a site safety plan include 

The following jobs need a safety plan:

  • Construction or demolition of buildings (including homes)
  • Jobs where there is underpinning or excavation 
  • Alterations or demolitions which make up half of the building.  
  • Jobs which may pose an increased danger to the surrounding public. 
  • Enlargement of the building either vertically or horizontally. 
  • Removing floors in the building.
