Safecon’s team of highly skilled and experienced professionals are experts in the field of construction safety. The P.S.C.S. has an integral role in the safety procedures required by law in the construction process.
Safecon works on a daily basis with organisations from the private and public sectors to ensure our clients have full peace of mind that the end project will be built to the highest standards of health and safety.
Project Supervisor Construction Stage (PSCS)
The role of Safecon as project supervisor construction stage (P.S.C.S.) is to manage and co-ordinate health and safety matters during the construction stage. The P.S.C.S. is appointed before the construction work begins and remains in that position until all construction work on the project is completed.
Construction Stage Safety Plan
As P.S.C.S. we can prepare a safety plan prior to commencement of work on site by, collecting information and documentation from participating contractors and others. This will identify hazards, document the control of risks during construction and develop the safety and health plan initially prepared by the Project Supervisor Design Process (P.S.D.P.) before construction commences. The HSA will be notified before construction commences where construction is likely to take more than 500 person days or 30 working days.
Health and Safety Plan
The Safety Plan prepared by Safecon provides a detailed risk assessment of the project and enables the P.S.C.S. and Contractor to implement an effective construction safety plan in advance of starting work on site and so reducing the potential for accidents and losses during construction.
Organisation on Site
The co-ordination and the implementation of the construction regulations by contractors in addition to organising the co-operation between contractors with the provision of information. This includes such duties as co-ordination of the reporting of accidents to the Authority, the appointment of a site safety representative where applicable, ensure that craft, general construction workers and security workers have a Safety Awareness cards, e.g. Safe Pass and a Construction Skills card where required and appoint a safety adviser where there are more than 100 on site.
Project Safety Management
This will involve monitoring the compliance of contractors and others and taking corrective action where necessary. The P.S.C.S. may issue directions to designers or contractors and notify the client of non-compliance with written directions. We will also provide all necessary safety file information to the P.S.D.P.
The Safety File is a key document intended for the safety of end users of the building or those who will extend or maintain the building in future and is effect the building maintenance manual for the completed project. As P.S.C.S. we have an essential role in compiling the file for delivery to the client.
