Regular site assessments and field surveys are a critical element of any safety plan. Why? Because first-hand observations let managers determine if the safety aspects of a project will meet the objectives set out in the safety plan. They also offer an opportunity to identify potential areas of concern - before inspectors arrive or problems arise.  

How detailed an assessment should be depends on the nature of the site and the work that is currently underway. A thorough assessment should also anticipate upcoming work and identify hazards that may arise as the scope of the project changes.



The safety experts at Safety Management Group have prepared an article that provides useful information to help you conduct effective and efficient site visits and reviews, including overall site condition, signage, access, PPE use, fire protection and more.
