Safety Suggestions For Pros

Safety Suggestions For Pros

  • Before commencing work, inspect all equipment and vehicles to see if they are in proper working order and operating in safe manner. Immediately repair or replace broken, leaky, faulty, worn, or unsafe equipment and vehicles.

  • Wear appropriate personal protective clothes and equipment including shoe covers at all times.

  • Identify and label flammable, dangerous, explosive, and hazardous substances and chemicals. Ensure all flammable, dangerous, explosive, and hazardous substances and chemicals are safely secured and stored.

  • Secure and store all equipment and vehicles safely, when not in use.

  • Look in the direction you are moving at all times. Do not attempt to walk backwards.

  • Do not walk into a Work Area that is not properly lit.

  • Do not carry out any work you believe to be unsafe, do not take direction on how to achieve tasks from the Construction Operations Team, other Pros, or Customer unless you agree it is a safe way to conduct the work.

  • Stay as far away as possible from a delivery vehicle, crane, or other construction vehicle. Assume the driver cannot see or hear you.

  • When using wire ropes, come-along clamps, anchors, and hoists ensure that the load rating specified by the manufacturers shall not be exceeded during operations. These shall be inspected regularly and replaced and repaired when damaged or when dependability is doubtful.

  • Familiarize yourself with potential fall hazards in the Work Areas. Don’t work in areas where fall protection systems are needed but yet to be installed. Pros using personal fall arrest systems should inspect them before each use to ensure they are working properly and are free of damage. The lanyard or lifeline should be short enough to prevent the Pro from making contact with a lower level in the event of a fall.

  • Wear hard hats when working on, under or around a scaffold. When working on a scaffold, wear sturdy, non-skid work boots and use tool lanyards to prevent slips and falls and to protect Pros below. Never work on a scaffold that is covered with water, ice, or mud or exceed the maximum permitted load on the scaffold.

  • When using ladders, always maintain three points of contact while ascending and descending a ladder, that’s both feet and at least one hand. Tie ladders to a secure point at the top and bottom to avoid sliding or falling. Carry tools and materials up the ladder using a tool belt or pull them up using a rope once you stop climbing.

  • Never exceed the permitted load on the ladders.
