Maintaining Structural Safety as Part of the Job Safety Analysis Process
Construction safety programs are founded on procedures, training, preplanning, and commitment to employee’s wellbeing. Successful programs typically focus on proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), fall protection, etc., and putting safety clearly above profit and risk of lost production. One area that is equally important but unfortunately not always considered in site specific safety plans is maintaining the structural safety and capacity of the concrete buildings being constructed or modified. These safety concepts and procedures are intended to avoid structural collapse, injuries, defects, and load carrying deficiencies. Attendees will leave with a general perspective of how structures need to be properly constructed, the typical signs of distress, and other specific do’s and don’ts related to maintaining structural safety of the building and the workers in it. These principles should be applied to every Job Safety Analysis process.
