Injury risks for this sector
Civils can present many hazards that are high risk, and include trench or excavation collapse and buried services. Additionally, excavators are historical killers with an average of three fatalities a year, with most of these been caused by a person struck by the excavator bucket or arm.
However, if we move away from high risk areas and look at more common causes for accidents that civils pose, we see a patten emerging that includes slips, trips and falls on the same level, falling from height (into trenches and excavations), manual handling injuries, musculoskeletal injuries (particularly to knees), hearing loss, impact or crushing injuries (particularly to hands) and lung damage from silica dust.
H&S for civils should be designed to identify risks that can cause harm, and put control measures in place that either eliminate or significantly reduce the risk to an acceptable level.
What H&S does your company need?
H&S isn’t just about documents anymore, and particularly in civils, you may be requested to get NRSWA training for operatives that work on or near highways.
The staple documents needed for most principal contractors include:
Risk assessments: These are documents are a legal requirement, and assess a task for potential hazards and the likelihood of them occurring. If risks are found then control measures are documented that either eliminate the risks or bring them down to acceptable levels.
Method statements: These are not required by law, but usually need to be provided at a principal contractors behest and they list the order of works and any safe working practices that need to be followed.
COSHH assessments: These are a legal requirement and show the work exposure limit, hazards to health and environment, first aid and fire fighting measures of substances that are used or that people may come into contact with in the workplace.
All of the above documents are included in this H&S package.
Additionally you will need a company H&S policy by law if you employ 5 or more people, and you may need addition documents such as an equality and diversity policy or and anti slavery policy if requested by principal contractor.
Workplace training is the construction industry usually focuses on H&S. Even if operatives need training on using a new piece of plant, the training content will focus on the safe way to use the plant. Safe working practices are the main message.
If staff work on or near highways they are often required to take the relevant NRSWA course and other stock training considered important for the entire construction industry includes, manual handling, asbestos awareness, working at height and same level slips, trips and falls.
Not all training consists of a formal course though. Sometimes the most important training is site specific, letting staff know about traffic management systems, site rules and what is expected of them on specific sites. This type of training can include, inductions, tool box talks, safety fliers and notices and posters.
