Safety of Construction and Operation

Is safety during the construction and operation of structures on behalf of your company sufficiently ensured?

It is important to ensure the best possible safety of employees and the public during any type of construction and operation of structures.

Design the hazards out

The safety of employees and the public during any type of construction and operation of structures is ensured by, among other things, a risk assessment by designers during the preparatory stage of construction, improvements to the design, risk assessment at the construction site, construction monitoring, and regular maintenance of the construction’s safety aspects during operation, as well as occupational health and safe work. Safety and operation manuals for structures provide a good overview of the organisation, operation, and maintenance of technical and safe systems as well as response plans.

Verkís’ experts carry out a risk assessment of projects during the preparation stage as part of the design. Emphasis is placed on “designing out the hazards”, that is, applying methods that include risk reduction, as well as requirements for SHE issues are made in tender documents.

Verkís has employees with a lot of experience in construction supervision and the supervision of safety, health, and environmental issues (SHE) at work sites, coordination of SHE issues, and preparation of SHE plans for construction sites, both in general construction projects, utility, transport, and heavy industry projects. Verkís can also provide SHE representatives for temporary work in your company or during construction, as well as offering various courses on safety, health, and the work environment on the site for employees and project managers.
