Construction Site Workers, Introduction, Most accidents can be prevented by taking simple. measures or adopting proper working procedures This. handbook is intended to outline important issues on safety. and health that should be paid attention to on construction. sites for easy reference by the workers If we work carefully. and take appropriate safety measures there will definitely. be fewer work injury cases and our sites will become a safe. and secure place to work in, The Occupational Safety and Health Ordinance which. came into operation on 23 May 1997 covers most workplaces. in order to protect the safety and health of employees at. work Other legislation applicable to construction sites. includes the Factories and Industrial Undertakings Ordinance. and its subsidiary legislation particularly the Construction. Sites Safety Regulations, Employees Responsibilities.
Employees should cooperate with their employers and. other persons in complying with the safety legislation and. guidelines and should not do anything to endanger, themselves and other persons. Basic Rules for Safety, Tidy up construction sites. Keep passages clear all the time, Sort out materials and pile them up safely The stacks should not be. Beware of floor openings and ensure that they are fenced or covered. Remove refuse as soon as possible, Provide sufficient lighting. Familiarize with the location and the operation of fire fighting equipment. Safety measures, Before you operate a machine ensure that the dangerous part of the.
machine has been installed with a guard, Avoid going to any area with insufficient lighting as there may be some. dangerous places which have not been provided with fencing. Keep vigilant all the time and watch out for moving cranes hooks or. other lifting equipment, Before you use any electrical installation or tool check the condition of. its electric cables, Avoid dragging electric cables on the ground or allowing the cables to. come into contact with water, Use electrical tools installed with an earth leakage circuit breaker. Use and handle chemicals with care, Personal Safety.
Wear protective equipment, Do not drink or take drugs while working. Pay attention to personal hygiene, Do not play in the workplace. Report to your supervisor immediately if you notice any unsafe condition. Emergency Response to Accidents, You should have a good understanding of your working environment. and the instructions given by your supervisor When evacuation. is required in an emergency you should keep calm and find out. What dangerous situation the alarm refers to, The routes for evacuation. The safe place that you should go to as designated by the company. When someone is found seriously injured you should. Seek help immediately, Accompany the injured person.
Assist in the immediate rescue work as far as possible. Call the site safety staff, Do not try to move the injured person unless it is really necessary. Do not tamper with the accident scene while waiting for the arrival. of the investigation team, When a fire breaks out you should remember. Put out the fire with a fire extinguisher if it is a small fire. If the blaze is out of control do not try to extinguish the fire on your. own Call the Fire Services Department right away, Emergency telephone numbers.
