Construction Job Site Personal Safety Rules
My company is an Architectural firm, and we are in the process of preparing a policy regarding job site personal safety for our employees who will be visiting construction sites. Part of this policy is prescribing the minimum protective equipment they are to wear while on the job site (hard hat, hard sole shoes, safety glasses, ear protection and high-visibility vests), in addition to advising them of the need to adhere to the Contractor's safety regulations (which they will be briefed on at the beginning of projects' construction) and being mindful of potential hazards. In the policy we are careful to note that the personal safety requirements cannot cover all instances in which they may be exposed to potential hazards, and that it's their responsibility to be prudent in their actions on the job site.
Any words to the wise regarding the pitfalls of such a policy? What to include and not to include?
