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:

Proper Preparation

  • Listing each task by the steps it takes to complete all the work scheduled tobe done onĀ­ 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 

Hazard Identification

  • 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

Hazard Management

  • 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

Following up

  • 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
