Construction is a high hazard industry that comprises a wide range of activities involving construction, alteration, and/or repair. Examples include residential construction, bridge erection, roadway paving, excavations, demolitions, and large scale painting jobs. Construction workers engage in many activities that may expose them to serious hazards, such as falling from rooftops, unguarded machinery, being struck by heavy construction equipment, electrocutions, silica dust, and asbestos.
Proactive safety planning during all phases of construction is essential in order to reduce the risk associated with construction and renovation activities, as well as eliminate hazards to construction workers, faculty, staff, students, and the public. This service includes the management and implementation of the Construction Safety Standard, pre-construction planning, evaluation of contractor safety performance, development of a project hazard analysis, detailed review of high-risk activities, and administration of a comprehensive substance abuse prevention program.
An effective construction safety program must have the endorsement of upper management. At PCS, safety is valued as highly as quality and productivity. The management of PCS realizes that performing a job safely is just as important as meeting a deadline and providing a quality product. In turn, a safe workplace leads to greater productivity and quality craftsmanship. An effective construction safety program must also have the involvement and commitment of all employees. All employees share the responsibilities of the safety team by following safe practices on and off the job and assisting their fellow employees in promoting safety and good health practices.
The policies and procedures outlined in PCS’ Construction Safety Program are intended to assist employees in minimizing the risks inherent in the styles of work performed. The objective of the program is to establish a culture of safety awareness among all employees. To meet this objective, all levels of the organization must work together towards identifying, evaluating and eliminating the hazards facing the employees of construction companies.
