Why Site Visits are the Best Health and Safety Learning Experience

Are you 100% confident that your employees are working safely? If they were to have an accident, could you be sure you had done all you possibly could to prevent it?

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) reports that the construction industry was responsible for the highest number of workplace fatalities in 2022/2023, with a total of 45 deaths. This has increased by 15 fatalities compared to 2021/2022, and so health and safety in construction is as important as it ever has been!

Site visits are the best way to ensure your site is safe for both workers and visitors.

What are site visits and what is their purpose?

Site visits are a snapshot of a site’s performance and provide the guidance to improve things. These visits are at the heart of how health and safety is managed, and are vital in both mitigating potential risks and successfully planning a project.

Conducting a visit assesses the current safety regulations in place and any potential hazards on a site. The findings also provide a basis for improvement going forward. Our Consultants report on what is going well and best practice, as we are there to partner with your site managers rather than police them.

They are not just a construction-related activity, inspections can also be carried out at non-construction sites, such as factories, workshops, retail premises, offices, and more.

By monitoring your workplaces regularly, you’ll not only fulfil legal obligations, such as Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations or CDM Regulations, you’ll be helping to ensure that risks are minimised, and your employees feel safer.
