The festive season is finally here, and many sites are closing to celebrate Christmas through to the new year. But before you leave to enjoy the festivities and a well-earned break, there are a few things you need to get into order.
Even when your site is inactive, you still hold a duty of care, in order to keep the general public safe.
This checklist will help you minimise any risks posed during the break by ensuring your site is as secure as possible, during your time away:
Check your fencing
You need to define your site boundaries, with the use of suitable fencing; this should reflect the nature of the site and the surrounding areas. Take a quick walk round your site to ensure that fencing is secure and undamaged. Children (and thieves) will often enter construction sites during quiet periods, and the best way to keep them safe from injury is to keep them out.
