safety on construction sites and in building operation

Has your enterprise taken sufficient precautions to ensure safety on building sites and in building operation?

It is essential to ensure the highest possible level of safety for employees and the public on building sites of any kind and in building operation. This is achieved, among other things, by means of designers' risk assessments during the preparatory stage for projects, improvements in design, project supervision, and regular attention to safety factors for structures in use, such as occupational health and safety measures. Safety and operations manuals for structures provide a good overview of the organisation, operation, and maintenance of equipment and security systems, and contingency plans.

Verkís experts draw up risk assessments for construction projects in the preparatory stage as one element of design. These stress “designing out risks,” i.e. employing methods to minimize risk and incorporate safety, health, and environmental (HSE) requirements into tender documents.

Verkís employs personnel with vast experience of construction supervision and attention to HSE concerns on construction sites, as well as the coordination of HSE issues and the production of HSE plans for construction sites, and power plant, transport, and heavy industry projects. The company can also provide HSE representatives to work temporarily in your enterprise or during construction projects, and we can provide a wide range of courses on safety, health, and the workplace environment for staff and persons in foremanship positions.
