A construction site is one place where keeping track of visitors is essential. However, beyond tracking and documentation, you’ve also got to ensure that your visitors are familiar will be safe, and that involves educating them:
- Make sure they review a manual on visitor safety – a basic safety manual should be read by all visitors before entering a work area. Additionally, they should also be verbally briefed by a site worker that can tell them about more specific things to watch out for.
- Have them sign that they understand the safety regulations- visitors will better understand the importance of the issue if they have to sign a document that confirms they read and understand the manual.
- They should never leave their escort – visitors should always be escorted throughout the site. Ensure that they understand what the repercussions could be if they choose to wander. Note where they will be when on the site, and with whom, in a visitor management system.
- Be sure they know not to interrupt the staff – individuals working on a construction site need to remain focused, or accidents could occur. Visitors cannot be distracted in this way.
By putting a couple of major security protocols in place at any construction site you’re running, you can keep visitors and staff alike safe.
