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
