As it is a construction site there happens many activities such as excavation, loading/ unloading the materials/ equipment and earth filling. In addition to welding, cutting, scaffolding, formwork and building construction. This would come up with risks like getting hit by a vehicle or an object, Fire explosion and electric shock. At a construction site, it is essential to be prepared for challenges. In case of an emergency there will be a siren and with the sound, we request you not to panic. Please assemble at the assembly point you will be guided by the security persons. In a while, you will be hearing further announcement through loudspeakers helping you move to a safer place.
Know your first aid, the best aid
There is always a backup of first aid, wheelchair and stretcher in the security office room. So rely on it in case of any emergency occurring with formwork or scaffolding collapse. It is advisable to use protective equipment like safety shoe and safety helmet. Along with the protective wear as a measure of precaution whenever you are proximal to formwork structure and scaffolding. You are also advised to deposit your mobile phones, matchbox, any other inflammable items and camera to security at the entrance of any construction site. Valuing our comfort is good, but valuing our safety is better. Any suspicious material can be a parcel of danger. So it’s advisable to not to take risk by touching it rather inform the authorities in the construction sites.
Your safety is in your hands
