Halfway Fence Company is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and healthy environment on all of our worksites.
We will work to our own site safety plan and/or comply with contractor safety requirements when necessary.
We will take all practical steps to:
Provide a safe work environment as well as safe equipment and materials that are regularly inspected and reported
Practice safe work methods at all times
Provide regular supervision and safety training to new and existing crew members entering the work site
Ensure that all crew members are well informed and accept their responsibility to promote and maintain a safe and healthy work environment
Identify and report any unsafe work conditions, equipment, or materials to a supervisor immediately
We will also implement job safety analysis by:
Listing each task by the steps it takes to complete all the work scheduled tobe done on site for that day
Pay particular attention to high-risk or complex procedures and tasks as well as rarely performed, newly added or newly modified tasks.
Determining the priority of a task based on its:
Severity: what could result from mishap during the task
Frequency: potential to encounter a hazard more than once during the task
Probability: potential for something to go wrong during the task
Have the supervisor develop a plan to best perform all tasks for that day
Frequently analyzing the work site by identifying the hazards (and potential hazards) through regular inspections by a supervisor or trained crew member
Recording and updating the findings
Considering weather conditions for that day and what effect they may have on the tasks to be completed
Identifying strategies to eliminate, reduce or control the hazard for each particular task on that day
Informing all on-site crew members, incoming crew members, and visitors of the hazards along with the strategies to eliminate, reduce or control those hazards and implementing them accordingly by:
Finding a new way to do the task when applicable
Changing the conditions that create the hazard when applicable
Changing the work procedure when applicable
Changing the time, location, etc. that the task is being done when applicable
Wearing personal protective equipment
Reporting and recording new hazards as well as potential hazards as they are identified and effectively communicate to all crew members
Reporting and recording any accidents or mishaps that could have resulted in an accident to a supervisor as soon as they occur
Make sure all crew members are meeting these required health and safety standards by conducting regular site inspections.
Meeting on a weekly basis to discuss findings from inspections as well as other important health and safety procedures
