Your Total Solution For Health and Safety Compliance In The Glass Brick Tile and Concrete Industry
Glass Brick Tile and Concrete Industry
Health and safety in the construction industry is important because it is such an integral part of the South African economy. Having a well-managed Health and Safety system in your workplace can benefit both the employer and employee as even the smallest incident could cause loss of productivity, loss of workers, loss of income, and loss of staff morale.
Construction can be an extremely hazardous industry but it is the duty of employers and employees to identify and manage those hazards. The risks for each piece of machinery and product must be documented and included in all training, as well as re-assessed during all risk assessments. Employees need to be able to mitigate these hazards as far as possible through proper training and the correct use of PPE. Regular first aid training should be provided in all construction areas.
All employees and visitors to construction sites need to be provided with full PPE (Personal Protective Equipment such as a hard hat and steel-toed boots) and basic instruction on health and safety.
