Heavy machinery, working at heights and busy forecourts are all common place on most construction sites, making them incredibly dangerous. That’s why health and safety is vital.
Accidents can happen from time to time, there’s no getting away from that, but there are procedures and training courses that can help to help create a safer working environment. Here at CIP we specialise in health and safety publications for the construction industry. Below are two publications all construction sites should have.
Providing basic first aid procedures for when someone has an electric shock on site this safety poster is a must have for those working in electrical supply, electrical testing, transmission and generation. The poster highlights key steps to follow whilst waiting for help from the emergency service.
Employers and employees are required, by law, to record and report work related accidents no matter how big or small. The Accident Book features 50 accident record forms which make it easy for employers to keep all records in one place whilst being GDPR compliant.
It is a legal requirement for all employers to record incidents involving workers, visitors and contractors. The accident book can be shared with inspectors if and when required.
Both the Electric Shock First Aid Poster and Accident Book are vital publications for all employers. Health and Safety is paramount on all construction sites and the Poster could be the difference between life and death on site and help prevent a more serious accident occurring.
As we all know it’s a legal requirement to implement strict health and safety procedures on site, otherwise you could incur a costly fine or even worse a prison sentence. Investing in both publications will ensure you’re compliant with safety regulations, whilst also helping to provide a safer working environment for your employees.
