Construction Safety Systems
We can develop and implement site-specific systems and plans to ensure your workers and others who may be affected by your work, are protected from the hazards associated with the construction industry and that responsibilities are clearly outlined and understood.
Our experienced consultants are able to advise on the management of specific hazards such as;
- working at heights,
- confined spaces,
- hazardous substances,
- hots works,
- works near electricity,
- the management of contractors and hazards that may be inherent in the construction site itself
We have a detailed understanding of health issues which may be of particular concern to the construction industry such as possible exposure to asbestos, manual handling, respiratory disease, noise and hand arm vibration (HAV), dermatitis, and environmental hazards such as heat stress and sun exposure.
For example, some of our latest projects include the development of Isolation Procedures and conducting Confined Space risk assessments and associated rescue plans (in line with the requirements of AS2865 Safe Work in Confined Spaces).
Safety Excellence Packages
USSA Global have also recently launched a range of Safety Excellence Packages, aimed at small and medium sized businesses, which includes a specific package for the Construction industry; these contain a core Safety Management system and provide access to ongoing advice and support.
