What can be done to prevent loss whilst construction sites are silent
We have put together a Loss Prevention Standard on the mothballing of construction sites together with a project shutdown checklist. This document contains recommendations for temporary or extended shutdowns or mothballing of construction projects.
Please share with your clients.
It deals with potential actions before sites are closed, the ongoing monitoring of the site during closure and safely bringing them back on line at the end of the closure period.
This should be considered a dynamic procedure and should therefore be reviewed and updated regularly, to reflect conditions and changes.
Specific consideration should also be made for reduced staffing levels and lone working to ensure that there is appropriate supervision oversight of site activities, including health and safety, quality assurance, environmental management and permit to work systems.
