The law requires that business must be conducted without putting members of the public at risk. This includes the public and other workers who may be affected by your work. All construction sites require measures to manage access across defined boundaries and steps to exclude unauthorized individuals, including children. Each year, two or three children die after gaining access to building sites, and many more are injured. Others seriously injured by materials or tools falling outside the site boundary, falling into trenches, or being struck by moving plant and vehicles. Protecting the public includes keeping people safe from falling objects outside the boundary. Care must be taken to ensure objects cannot fall outside the site boundary and use of toe-boards, brick guards and netting on scaffolding or covered walkways should be implemented. Make sure pedestrians cannot be struck by vehicles entering or leaving the site. Obstructing the pavement during deliveries may force pedestrians into the road, where they can be struck by other vehicles. Prevent people outside the being struck while they are erecting, dismantling and using scaffolding and other access equipment or storing and stacking materials. Risks associated with the storage of materials can be reduced by storing materials within the site perimeter, preferably in secure compounds or away from the perimeter fencing. People can be injured if they fall into excavations, manholes, stairwells or from open floor edges. You’ll need to put up barriers or covers. Other hazards include: slips, trips and falls within pedestrian areas; plant, machinery and equipment; hazardous substances; electricity and other energy sources; dust, noise and vibration. Protecting the Public Toolbox Talk (UK) app provides useful illustrations to help employers provide a safer workplace.

Don't take our word for it...

“I’m not a tech guy and I was able to pick this thing up in probably an hour, and actually start to build apps. I’ve done them over lunch when I’ve gotten frustrated with a process that didn’t exist in our company. So for non tech people who’ve got a problem, the support here is awesome and I’d recommend it to anybody, not just in our industry.”
